3 Organizational Skills Organization is not a “one size fits all” concept 6 different classes = up to 6 different organizational methods Physical organization  Backpack  Lockers  Binders  Folders Mental organization  Agendas  Time management

4 Organizational Skills – How to Help at Home Encourage “check-ups” – regular time to go through binder/bookbag/folders to reorganize Encourage new methods & tweak old ones Practice, practice, practice Review your child’s agenda regularly & consistently – compare against other sources of information (teacher websites) Communicate with your child  “What do you feel is/isn’t working?”  “How do you feel you’re doing with organization?” Communicate with your child’s teachers Step in when help is needed!

5 Study Skills Students struggle to be more independent in middle school and are more reluctant to ask for help. Middle School = more homework So many ways to study!  Flash cards (paper or online)  Re-reading notes  Graphic organizers  Reworking problems  Summarizing  Memorizing

6 Study Skills – How to Help Provide an appropriate time & place to study. Monitor homework completion.  Ask to see agenda & completed HW assignments regularly Help your child develop an organizational system. Help your child break down larger assignments.  Reduce anxiety, reinforce time management skills, reduce procrastination Communicate with your child’s teachers. Focus on the process, not the content. Reflect on what works – and what doesn’t.

7 Helpful Tips Give your child some choices/options  Where to complete homework & study  When to complete homework & study Balance “hovering” with “independence”  Ask your child “What’s your plan?”; help them modify if needed, but try not to control the situation.  Tell your child “Show me what you’ve done” and “Show me what else you need to do” at various intervals. Consistency, consistency, consistency  Try to keep the structure and schedule the same – but they get (some of) the independence during their work time. Step in when needed  You know your child best.  Ask “How can I help?” – try not to jump in and start “fixing” things
