Organized Student

That is a life lesson and one that the schools are trying to teach the kids, meet the deadlines. The world is full of deadlines and the sooner you understand that, the better.

1) Use a planner book to keep track of assignments. The schools now even have their own planner books for sale and I think it is a really good idea.

2) Work on assignments right away. Just get started a little bit, it will help to get you started thinking about a big project. You may find it really is not that hard and finish right away or at least you will get it partly done.

3) Write your name and the date on all your work.

4) When doing math, do it neatly. This really helps to avoid mistakes.

5) Learn the multiplication tables from 0 to 12. A lot of kids really struggle doing their math homework quickly because they do not have the multiplication table memorized completely. They know most of it but not fast.

6) Do the best you can in the time you have. Kids may be involved in other things. They may not feel well. So it would be impossible to do perfect, excellent work all the time. To me, that does not matter. Just do the best you can with the time and energy you have.

If the student is embarrassed about the quality of their work, that means they need to spend more time at the front end doing a better job. Trying to not be embarrassed is the motivation to do better and be an organized student.
