Use a student planner Using a student planner every day is the #1 way to stay organized. Take your planner to every class and record the following: Daily assignments, quizzes, and tests Important dates (exam dates, special events, etc.) Activities and appointments Have a different colored pocket folder for each class Use these folders for handouts, returned papers, and homework assignments. When a folder starts to get full, throw out anything you don’t need, and put any papers you want to keep (review sheets, returned tests, etc.) in a file at home. Use 3-ring notebooks for notes Have a three-ring notebook for each subject, or one large notebook with tabs for multiple subjects. Make To Do lists Each night, make a To Do list for the next day. Put the most important tasks at the top. Cross things off as they get done, and put any unfinished tasks on the next day’s To Do list. Get organized before you go to bed Each night, put completed homework in the right folders and get everything organized for the next day. If there’s something you need to remember to do in the morning, leave yourself a note. 1 2 3 4 5 1 Step Organization Tips 4
