Get organized to help your child have a great school year. A new school year is a fresh start. It’s an ideal time to create routines and establish habits that will support your child’s efforts in school. Use these simple strategies to keep your family organized for learning success: • Set priorities. Schoolwork, family time and healthy habits come first. Schedule time for these on your family calendar. If there are open blocks of time, your child can add activities. • Create an evening routine. Getting organized each evening for the next day makes mornings a snap. Make lunches, pack items needed for school in your child’s backpack and agree on outfits. Set and stick to a bedtime that lets your child get nine to 11 hours of sleep. • Create a morning routine. If your child does the same things in the same order each day, she’s less likely to forget a step. List her tasks to get ready for school: Eat breakfast, brush teeth, put lunch into backpack, etc. • Designate a homework time. Pick a time when your child will have the most energy and motivation to work. This could be right after school, or after she has had a chance to relax a bit. A set time makes it easier for your child to get down to business. Create a quiet study spot and equip it with paper, pencils and other necessary supplies.
