The ECO Edge

Dear Parents and Teachers, To assist children in staying organized and prepared consider these helpful tips for both parents and teachers:

  1. Prepare for the day ahead. Before your children go to bed encourage them to pack school work and books in their school bag and pick out the next day’s clothes. This cuts down on morning confusion and allows children to prepare quickly for the day ahead.
  2. Organize homework assignments. Encourage students to start with assignments that are not long or difficult, but avoid saving the longest or hardest assignments for last.
  3. Encourage the use of a master family organizer. The Family Activity Organizer assists households in listing the family’s commitments, schedules for extracurricular activities, days off from school, and major events at home and at school. Help your child develop organizational skills by reminding him/her about filling in their activities on the Family Activity Organizer.
  4. Designate a study space. Parents: encourage your children to create a consistent study space where they can keep school supplies and materials close by and that is quiet and free from distractions.
  5. Set a designated study time. Students should know that a certain time every day is reserved for studying and doing homework. The best time is usually not right after school — most children benefit to unwind first. Even if there is no homework, the reserved time should be used to review the day’s lessons, read for pleasure, or work on an upcoming project.
  6. Create a household schedule. Parents should establish and stick to a regular dinnertime and a regular bedtime for their children. This will help them fall into a pattern at home. Children with a regular bedtime go to school well-rested.
