Creating a Rotation Schedule

This page contains three Examples of Various Rotation Schedules for varying numbers of age groups and different number of weeks in the Rotation. They were created by Neil MacQueen using Rotation Form Scheduler -a simple webpage template at rotation.org you're more than welcome to use.

The following "CREATIVE" Rotation Schedule demonstrates several possibilities. This one shows THREE Grade Groups on a FIVE Week Schedule with some workshops COMBINED.

Combining makes sense when you are short a room and one has to pull double duty. Some workshops are easier to combine than others, such as, Theater and Art.

This example also shows how to put the older grade group into the computer lab for two weeks in a row and how to conduct ONE week special workshops. The variations aren't quite "endless" but there are a bunch.

As you can see, the Rotation model offers you many scheduling possibilities to suit your grade groups, time of year attendance, room availability, and creative ideas.

The forms on this page are OPEN. You can ERASE/REPLACE any of the text in the boxes and type in your own. Then, select PRINT from your Internet Browser. It will give you the whole page, but at least you can have a copy of the schedule you might want to consider. FORM1.htm at this website will help you create a "cleaner" looking copy for distribution to volunteers. <>< Neil
