As I started using my daily schedule I found myself jotting down ideas for each day in my notebook. By the second week, I decided another paper with every day would be helpful to use in conjunction with our daily schedule.
I found that having one of the following every day helped: a sensory bin, an indoor activity, an outdoor activity, a craft project, and a walking route. We definitely do not always get to all 5 but I found having something written down in each category helps with my anxiety about the day.
To help me come up with these I decided to pick a theme for the week along with a song or songs and a focus book. Last week I attempted to do pets and this week I am trying to focus on transportation. I am not strict about it but it helps limit my brainstorming and online surfing at night.
