Organization is an area in which parents can really help their children.  Make sure that your child has a folder for each subject. Remind your child to put all handouts, assignments, and returned tests in the appropriate folders. Loose papers should not be stuck inside books or stuffed into a backpack.  Have your child use a student planner, assignment notebook, or agenda to keep track of assignments. Check it regularly to make sure that your child is using it correctly.  Help your child learn how to organize and prioritize homework. Ask your child to explain what needs to be done, and then help your child develop a plan.  Large assignments can sometimes seem overwhelming. Show your child how to break large assignments and projects down into smaller, more manageable tasks.  Encourage your child to clean out his/her backpack and desk every week.  Each night, have your child get everything ready for the next day before going to bed.
