Looking for a simple kids schedule or morning routine for school with sequencing cards? This routine and sequencing activity is easy to put together. Children thrive on routine and knowing what to expect each day. Our morning routine for school is very basic. I expect each of my children to wake up, brush their teeth, get dressed, eat breakfast and then get to school on time. If you randomly do something that they weren’t expecting then this leads to tantrums. You could use this morning routine for toddlers if your child is in school or wait and use it with your preschooler or kindergarten. One things for sure, children will love this morning routine for school sequencing activity while Mom’s will love how this simplifies the whole process!
Morning Routine For School
Having three kids means I have seen three different morning personalities. I had one child that wouldn’t eat in the morning, brushing teeth always seemed low on their list and another child that wouldn’t eat breakfast in the morning. Maybe you have a child that wont get dressed in the morning. With back to school right around the corner I was thinking about how to get the kids ready for school fast. I then remembered how we previously used a checklist to make this possible.
As an adult, you may wonder how this could possibly work. These printable morning routine flash cards seem too simple and like common sense. Yes, to you it may be common sense but to your child it lets them know what is expected of them and what should normally happen each morning. Plus the adorable graphics just make it that much more likely that they will want to use the sequencing cards.

- Velcro Dots
- Laminator with laminating sheets
- Scissor to cut everything out. I use my paper trimmer. It’s a lot quicker.
How to prepare the morning routine activity:
I have included a few different pages depending on the routine base that you would like. There is a blue, pink and yellow one.
Print and cut out the daily routine picture cards, laminate them, add velcro tabs and you are ready to go:
If you chose the smaller routine base then you can keep the cards in an envelope to use each morning.
If you use the larger base for the picture sequencing cards so that you can store the cards on that page then it will look like the following:
Each morning should begin like this:
All the sequencing cards should be at the bottom. In the morning, your child will do these tasks and each time they do a task they move the appropriate card to the top. It serves as a morning routine for school checklist.
Once they complete all the tasks in their school morning routine you could give them a sticker as an incentive.
