A key to staying organized

Creating an organization system for school materials that makes sense to your child is an important step to creating order and keeping track of their things. But the key to staying organized is to ensure your child is using and keeping up with the system. To help your child be proactive and consistent about organization, set aside a specific time for organizing their school materials. Once weekly, have your child clean out their backpack, folders, and binders, and recycle unnecessary materials and file away loose papers. With weekly cleanups, the organization will never get too far out of control and if done consistently, should take only a few minutes. By sticking to an organization schedule, creating order and keeping organized will, in time, become a habit.
