Organization And Time Management For Students & Parents

  1. 1. Organization and Time Management for Students & Parents<br />Steve Magat<br />
  2. 2. It’s about managing stuff & time<br /> Learning the basics of organization and time management will allow children to develop into adults who are prepared to tackle all of life&apos;s challenges.<br />
  3. 3. …and seeing what you have<br /> Having visual reminders of what you expect will allow your children to be more in control while still accomplishing the tasks you require. <br />
  4. 4. Parents + children = Partners<br />You can’t tell a child to be organized. <br />They will interpret your words in their own way.<br />Make them responsible for their work<br />…but set an example<br />
  5. 5. What can I do first?<br />Buy your child a watch<br />Maintain a family calendar. Place your family calendar in a central location<br />Make a “Chore Chart”<br />Make a “Reading Log”<br />
  6. 6. …and then the miracle happens<br />Be specific --<br />Specific instructions will yield specific results. <br /> Example: <br /> “Homework begins every night<br /> at 6:00 at the kitchen table<br /> Not<br /> “Do your homework”<br />
  7. 7. What can your kids do now?<br />Keep track of their own homework assignments.<br />Pack their own backpacks daily<br />Choose their own school clothes<br />Recognize when it is time to go to school.<br />
  8. 8. Be Flexible…but be consistent<br />Make “Guidelines” not “Laws”<br />
  9. 9. Last thought…YOUR HOMEWORK<br />Read to your child…or read with your child<br />Go to the library…pick out a book…sit and read together for 15 minutes.<br />
