• Organizational Strategies for Students
    Grades 3-6

    “Let’s Get Organized”

    1.    Designate a place in your desk for each item.

    2.   Put a checklist on your desk for papers/books that need to go home.  Check off each as you put it in your bag.

    Or, highlight assignments in book, as you pack your bag, before leaving for the day.

    3.   Use one 3-ring binder, using different folders/tabs for each subject, so that everything is in one place.

    4.   Work at a study corral or place  2 folders on desk – when working on tests or doing quiet work.

    5.   You may like to use a timer or keep time on a watch or clock, to make sure you are working at a good speed.  If it takes 20 minutes to do an assignment, put timer on for 10 minutes, so you know your time is half way up. 

    6.   ALWAYS- RE-CHECK YOUR WORK BEFORE HANDING IN!  Find your mistakes and correct them before turning into the teacher.
