Has the following scenario ever happened to your student? They claim they have completed an assignment, but they cannot find it. The class then reviews the assignment but your student is not able to go over their work with the class and feels upset that they can’t participate in discussions. How about this scenario? Your student’s important papers end up being crumpled up messes. Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutors and classroom teachers notice frequently students anxiously looking through disorganized backpacks for missing assignments. This lack of organization often occurs with students that have executive function and ADD/ADHD issues. It is important to stay on top of this issue, as it can be the main cause of poor homework and classwork grades. Some students even use class time searching for items rather than focusing on their work.
Whether a student has organizational issues or not, their backpacks should be cleaned out and maintained at least every month if not sooner. It is essential that your student keep track of assignments, permission slips, notices and other items needed. Sometimes important papers are found buried at the bottom of the bag or placed in the wrong section.
Children that are prepared for school each day and organized tend have reduced stress and anxiety. We tutor students with organizational issues and teach how to be organized so call Y3K Tutor In Your Home today!
