Back To School: Plan It | Families
Whether your kids have already started school or if you still have several weeks left to your summer, it’s never too late or too early to begin to set your stellar student up for success this school year.
Students from elementary school to college are expected to keep track of their assignments and manage their time. One way to do this is to use a planner. When students write down specific homework assignments, they don’t have to trust their memories when they get home or spend time phoning classmates to get the assignments. Older students enter upcoming tests and projects so they can budget their time by breaking large assignments into smaller chunks. These are great skills to master at a young age because once the children get into middle and high school, their schedules and work load are much more complicated. As a parent, you should look at the planner regularly so you can help keep your child on task.
By giving your child the tools of organization, you can help them relieve the stress of finding their backpack and knowing when the next test is. When they are not as worried about those kinds of things, they can put their energies into the academics of school and, who knows, they might actually like it!
