Getting Organized for School

Middle and high school is way tougher than elementary school. Instead of having your teachers or parents help you with getting organized for school, you need to do it on your own. Here are a few tips:

Practice staying organized.

  • Once you get organized, you need to practice staying organized!
  • Try something simple, like organizing your school backpack each night.
  • Move on to bigger things, and organize your toys or clothes once or twice a week.

Stop, think, and organize!

  • Don’t organize your things the way you think other people want them, organize so you can find things!
  • If you don’t lose your homework but always lose your clothes, organize your clothes!
  • Once you organize your clothes, you might find it easier to organize other things.

Learn how to organize thoughts when you write.

  • Collecting your thoughts before writing can be hard!
  • Try brainstorming your thoughts by recording yourself saying them.
  • Then move your ideas to a computer, and then organize each idea in an order that make sense.

Always know what your homework is!

  • There are many ways to organize what you need to do for homework!
  • Write down your assignments, and know who to ask if you don’t know what to do.
  • Try asking your friends what you need to do for homework!

One thought on “Getting Organized for School

  1. I am a mum to 4 kids. The thing that most people don’t know is that all my kids have disabilities, including my husband. They can see that my son with Down syndrome and Autism has a disability, but they can’t see that my daughter has ADD, aspergers and dysgraphia, nor that my next one also has aspergers and slow processing, and my youngest has aspergers alone. It is the way I found out that my husband has ADD, aspergers, slow processing and motor tics, and how I realised what was different about his family. Not even my best friends know. I don’t think I want them to know as I would feel judged or pitied and that doesn’t help at all. It’s been my secret for 14 years. My daughter is now 21 and was diagnosed at 7 with ADD, the rest came a few years later, though my son with Down syndrome was born a year prior to her diagnosis.
