To my wonderful followers:

Sorry for being M.I.A. lately. I have many projects in the works and I am so backed up on things I want to share. My husband is a basketball coach and the season just ended, so we have been having lots of fun together! I will be back to posting in no time & I can feel a huge giveaway in the works (finally!)

Have a happy Monday! :)

Helpful Organization for those Forgetful Students

Sunday, March 10, 2013 / 4 comments
I have a few students who really struggle with any assignments that are outside of school homework assignments {daily, weekly, book reports, etc).

I do morning check-ins and afternoon check-outs to help my students stay organized.

In the morning, they come right in the room, show me their homework from the previous night, and if it is complete, I let them check off in their square for that day. They don't have homework over the weekend, so I only have boxes for Tuesdays through Fridays.

Afternoon check-outs are for them to come in and we go over what they have for homework that night and they check that they have the supplies they need to do that homework. I will also reiterate the directions for each assignment, and I let them work on it until their bus is called.

Anytime they have a "long-term" assignment that lasts more than one night, I make a specific checklist for that to help them stay on track. The clear communicators make it easy to print off a chart and slip it right in to use with dry/erase markers, without worrying about laminating.

If you have a few that are struggling with organization, this might be a big help for them!

Have a great Sunday!
