Encourage your child to regularly use a student planner. Check it periodically to make sure that your child is using it correctly. To discourage loose papers being put in books and backpacks, provide your child with a folder for each class. Help your child set up a home filing system for the papers you want to keep. Have your child clean out his/her backpack at least once a week. Before going to bed each night, have your child get everything ready for the next day. Help your child develop routines. Having a good morning and nighttime routine helps students be more organized, and it makes their day run smoother.
