Set a specific day/time for organization
A clean backpack and orderly binder makes every assignment easier to find, complete, and turn in on time. In the hustle and bustle of the school week, organization can easily get overlooked. To help your child be consistent and proactive about organization, set aside a specific time for cleaning up and rearranging school materials. Once weekly, make time to recycle unnecessary materials and file away loose papers. Place additional materials, like pencil cases or calculators, in pockets where they belong and can be easily located. By being consistent and sticking to a schedule, in time your child’s organization skills will become automatic.
