How To Be Organized By: Erika, Mari, Sanjana and Rayisht



1.Make a folder for every member in your familly.

2.Make a planning journal.

3.Organize all of your materials, books, notebooks, etc.

4.Make a plan that includes budgeting the amount of time needed for different subjects, break times, and due dates for assignments.

5.Use an assignment notebook to record all homework and long-term projects.

6.Organize all your books, notes, handouts, flashcards, study-guides,
Choose to study during the time of day or night when you are most alert.

7.Take scheduled breaks during long homework assignments.

8.Make sure to check your assignments for errors before turning them in to your teacher.

9.Ask teachers, parents, and tutors for extra help and clarification.

10. Help your child get into the habit of using a “to-do” list. Checklists can be used to list assignments and household chores and to remind children to bring appropriate materials to class. It is recommended      that children keep a small pad or notebook dedicated to listing homework assignments. Crossing completed items off the list will help children feel a sense of accomplishment.

11.Children should study in the same place every night where supplies and materials are close at hand. This space doesn’t have to be a bedroom, but it should be a quiet place with few distractions. Young children may want their study space near a parent. This should be encouraged, as parents can then have the opportunity to monitor progress and encourage good study habits.

12.Children should know that a certain time every day is reserved for studying and doing homework. The best time is usually not right after school, as most children benefit from time to unwind first. Parents should include their child in making this decision. Even if your child does not have homework, the reserved time should be used to review the day’s lessons, read for pleasure or work on an upcoming project.

13.Help your child keep track of papers by organizing them in a binder or notebook. The purpose of a notebook is to help keep track of and remember the material for each day’s classes and to organize the material later to prepare for tests and quizzes. Use dividers to separate class notes, or color-code notebooks. Having separate “to do” and “done” folders helps organize worksheets, notices and items to be signed by parents as well as provide a central place to store completed assignments.

14.Children should be encouraged to go through and sort out book bags and notebooks on a weekly basis. Old tests and papers should be organized and kept in a separate file at home.

15.Before your child goes to bed he/she should pack schoolwork and books in a book bag. Clothes should be ironed and laid out with shoes, socks and accessories. This will cut down on morning confusion and allow your child to prepare for the day ahead

16.Help your child develop organizational skills by photocopying checklists and schedules and taping them to the refrigerator. Give children gentle reminders about filling in calendar dates and keeping papers and materials organized. Most important, set a good example.

17.Use large rubber bands to hold books and folders by subject area together.

18. Have a special folder or place for homework and for notes to parents. Carry this folder to all classes and home every day.

19. As you finish a class, put the books, papers, and homework assignments you need at home in your backpack. That way at the end of the day, you are already packed to go home.

 20.Have a separate project folder to keep all your project information and papers together in one place.

21.Check each morning to be sure that you have pencils, pens, paper, and other class supplies to take to your classes.

 22.Always keep extra pencils and pens in your locker or anything.

 23.Keep extra lunch money in your locker in case you forget to bring your lunch or lunch money.

 24.Keep all papers neatly in folders so they don’t get crinkled.
