    Fantastic. I am currently planning 8 workshops on Basic Classroom Management for delivery in the new year. Visual timetables are such a no-brainer ( allows kids to predict and prepare mentally for the day ) but very few teachers actually use them. I have used them for many years as I taught behaviour classes in NSW and QLd ( Australia) and made the day as predictable for the kids as it could be. Wish I had these resources them as I spent many an hour developing my own !

  • Jane Logan

    I love these and have used them all year, I teach Year 5 and they still like having the day laid out to see. My colleague used them with Year 6 and had the same response. Are you going to make them customisable? That would make them even better. Thanks!

    I love these! would it be possible to have a set done in portrait instead of landscape to make the labels a bit smaller?They are currently a little bit big for my purpose. Thanks.

      My thoughts as well. A little smaller would be great as I dont have much board space to display them.
      Thanks

  • Tracey Croucher

    Hi, I am looking forward to using these this year. Could I please have one for German and also one for Resource Based Learning (RBL is fine)? This is a combination of library and computers using research on a topic. It would also be good to be able to customise or move these about so that I don’t have to print off sheets I don’t need. Thanks for a great resource.

  • Dayna Moritz

    These are fantastic. I’ve been using something very similar for a while but didn’t have the energy to make new ones. It would be even better if they could be customised. Thank you. 🙂

      Please note that we are no longer making resource changes to this visual daily timetable. We have built a label creator so you can make whatever labels you like! If you click in the blue box at the top of this resource, near the download button, you can customise your own labels.

    I used these all of last year for my kindergarten class. I printed them much smaller, laminated them and then put magnetic tape on the back of them so that we could run through the day on the whiteboard. The kids love this resource!

    Hi,

    I love this visual timetable but was wondering if an editable one could be downloaded. When I change it to foundation font some labels like personal development go onto two lines and outside the rectangle. I would also love to be able to type into the blank rectangles provided.

    Thank you!

    Is it possible to add a ‘dance’ one?

  • Kate L'Huillier

    Hi. Really like to use this visual timetable and a previous comment by Jill says to click the ‘blue box’ next to download button. I can’t find anything like this. Is there anyway to open this document in the Studio to make/edit the current labels to suit my classroom? Thank you.

      Hi Kate,
      Thank you for your comment.
      Due to the large number of cards in this resource, we were unable to keep it as a customisable resource. You can make any extra labels that you may need here using our label creator though https://www.teachstarter.com/tools/label-creator/
      Kind regards

  • Margot Vandersar

    Hi Jill,

    I’m really disappointed that I can’t customise this resource any more. Last year I loved using this visual timetable and wanted to use it again this year. I customised my subject labels last year quite successfully and can reuse some of them for this year but some of my lesson names have changed this year so I wanted to be able to create some new labels to match the ones I’m reusing from last year. It’s very frustrating to have paid $108 and now discover that some of what I expected to be able to do is no longer available. Is there any way that you can re-instate the customisation facility on this resource? As for making your own labels in Studio – Studio is very slow and cumbersome and I avoid using it for this reason. I’ve tried using it on several computers but always with the same result. There doesn’t seem to be the range of borders etc.. on Studio either. Not happy Jan!
    Regards,
    Margot

  • Dana Delgado

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if there was anyway to keep the default font for these when downloading them as a Word Document – they change to a different font which uses the lowercase ‘a’ I am trying to steer my students away from.

    Alternatively do you know what the font is called in word that you use as the ‘default font’?

    Thanks,
    Dana 🙂

    Comment by Dana Delgado on May 23, 2018 at 4:19 pm


    • Kristian Kristian

      Hi Dana,

      Unfortunately, the school fonts we use are protected by a license and they cannot be embedded in Word Documents. For your particular state font, you may need to purchase the official font from another site. Your default school font for downloads from our site is determined by the state you have registered on Teach Starter with. Alternatively, we use Sassoon as our Australia wide default font and this is becoming very popular among Australian teachers and classrooms.

      I hope this helps, if there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

  • Karen Adams

    Thank you for these, can’t wait to print them. My senior students love knowing what’s coming up in their day and it saves me answering the question “What are we doing today?next?after recess? after lunch?
    The only other feedback I’d offer is that the seasons need to have capital letters as they are proper nouns.
    Thanks for all your work, it’s much appreciated!

    Comment by Karen Adams on January 13, 2019 at 12:43 pm


    • Kristian Kristian

      Hi there Karen,
      Thank you for your lovely comment. I am so glad you are enjoying our resources.
      We debated the ‘seasons’ issue hotly here at Teach Starter and after research, we have concluded that the seasons are common nouns unless they form part of a name. There is an interesting Grammarly article on this here:
      https://www.grammarly.com/blog/are-seasons-capitalized/
      If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

    Thankyou for this resource. Is there a way I can print this in Portrait mode rather than Landscape?

    Thankyou,

    Comment by Sharni Geary on February 1, 2019 at 1:19 pm


    • Kristian Kristian

      Hi Sharni,
      You might like to try printing two pages to one by using your printer dialogue. This would enable you to combine two pages and get 6-to-a-page labels in portrait!
      If there is anything else I can assist you with, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

  • Benjamin Angus

    I’m finding some difficulty – when I’m customising the labels, and save as a PDF to print (because Word printing isn’t doing what I want it to do), the pictures on the customised label show a white box going over the border, or when I shrink them into the dimensions of the border, the images turn to a black background once in PDF mode. It’s very frustrating that I cannot print what I’m setting out to do.

    Comment by Benjamin Angus on February 25, 2019 at 10:11 pm


    • Kristian Kristian

      Hi Benjamin,
      How are you customising the labels? The only version we have available to customise these is the Microsoft Word version.
      We would be happy to help once we can work out the process you are undertaking for customising.

      Official comment by Kristian on February 27, 2019 at 10:04 am


    • Benjamin Angus

      In Word, I’m writing in the label I’d like in place, e.g. Spelling is changed to Spelling Mastery. I’m also changing the font to Foundation NSW to go with the rest of my labels from previous years. When it’s converting to a PDF (saving from Word), the image goes over the border of the label. It happens on unedited labels as well.
