Organizational Tips and Skills

  • Use your planner daily. Write down assignments and projects due dates.
  • Have a homework folder. Keep  ALL homework assignments in one place to avoid losing or forgetting to take them home. 
  • Use color coded notebooks for different subjects.
  • Use a three-ring binder with color dividers for ALL subjects if teachers allow. 
  • Have a folder for ALL graded papers. Graded papers are great tools to revise skills learned. 
  • Clean your backpack daily. 

The night before:

  • Make sure you have your backpack ready: check if homework, binders, books, etc. are in your backpack. 

At the end of the day before you leave the campus:

  • Make sure you have the proper material to do your homework - books, maps, ruler, highliters, etc.
