Monday Made It Specials Rotation Schedule (A little late)

I’m linking up again with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It–just a day late!


My only Made It this time around is my Specials schedule. I’ve tried numerous ways of doing this, but I decided to try something new this year…and I must say this is by far the best one yet.

Our school has A Weeks and B Weeks for Specials rotations. I get tired of students asking what week it is and watching them try to figure out where they will be spending 50 minutes of their day, so I decided to use a cookie sheet and glue pictures for both weeks in order along the edge. I drew an arrow onto a painted clothespin that can be moved each day. This takes all the guesswork out of where we will go each day. The kids love it, and so do I!


What sort of chart or nifty idea have you come up with? I’d love to hear from you! Happy Tuesday!



  1. No wonder your kids are confused! It looks like they have physical activity 5 times out of 10 (so 50%), music 2 times out of 10 (20%), art only 1 time out of 10 (10%), computer, 1 time out of 10 (another 10%) and library only 1 time out of 10 (again 10%)… and in no specific order. The pizza pan is a great idea to help wrap their little minds around this schedule! I would also write it in your weekly/monthly newsletter and have the kids write it in their own planners to help them and their parents keep it straight at home. Good luck with this one!

    • Yes, our schedule is confusing! Unfortunately, that’s just how it is. Once I put it up, they understood it much better. Since they are 4th graders, they can look at the week and plan for it. I like the idea of putting it on their planners so that they remember to wear their athletic shoes on PE days. I also use Remind101 to send out messages to parents about library books, etc. and now that you mention it, I think I’ll send a schedule home, too, so that parents can stay on top of it. Thanks for the feedback! 😉
