Hey GirlMoguls, it’s Rose here, with another set of great tips for back to school success.  Today, I am going to share with you my easy tips for using that planner – you know that little book your parents buy you and you’re supposed to use to keep track of everything?  Well here are 4 easy ways to use that thing, instead of letting it collect dust…

  1. Pick one that’s right for you – planners come in all different styles, with some showing just the months and some with a page for each day.  Pick one that has enough room for you to write down all your to-dos and big events – I like ones that have a 2-page month spread for each month and then space for every day in that month…
  2. Add Dates right away – carry the planner with you everywhere – enter every homework assignment, deadline and event as soon as you can.  And then remember to look at it so you can see what’s coming up!
  3. Not just for school – don’t forget to write in all your other dates – like your sister’s birthday, or field trips or dance class, so you can plan you study time around your schedule
  4. Color Code – get colorful and pick a different color for each school subject and another color for after-school activities and so on so you can tell with a quick look how much you have to do in each category!

So see- using a planner isn’t so hard – and it will keep you organized and make schoolwork that much easier to handle – and you didn’t even have to hit the books!

Hey tweens – it’s GirlMogul here with some more tips on back to school.  Today I am going to give you some awesome tips on how to keep track of your school schedule – after all, if the difference between doing ok in school and better in school, was simply being more organized – rather than studying more, wouldn’t you be all over it?

  • Make a daily checklist – write down all your homework assignments in a planner or a little notebook and cross off each one when you finish (it’s such a GREAT feeling!) If something doesn’t get done – don’t sweat it – just move it to the list for the next day.
  • Set up a weekly chart – Create a simple grid for each week – you can draw it yourself or do it on the computer.  Put the name of each subject in the left column and the days of the week across the top  — then fill in all your homework assignments and t0-dos for the week.  Tape the chart to your homework folder on Sunday night and you’ll always know what you have to focus on
  • Map out  the month – some homework assignments overlap weeks, so don’t forget to put your big deadlines and activities for the month on a wall calendar – you can even use fun stickers or symbols to mark important events so they stand out.   You can put this calendar where the whole family can see it so your parents can track your schedule too!

So – how easy peasy it is to keep yourself organized.  Next up you’ll get GirlMogul Rose’s fullproof tips on how to use a planner.  Till next time.

Get Ready for Back to School – Homework Tips

Use a Goal Checklist

Hey GirlMoguls – it’s almost back to school time and here are a few more tips on how to make dealing with all of the school stuff a breeze – I mean if just a few organizational tips made school that much easier (and a cinch to grab a higher grade or two) wouldn’t it be worth it?  (Check out our first post here) After all it’s not like I’m telling you to go study or anything like that!  Ok, so here are my tips for handling those long-term homework assignments:

  • First Off – Jump right in – just because the due date for that Spanish project is a week or so away, doesn’t mean you should leave it to the last minute.  You should get started on it stat – because, trust me, just knowing you’ve started will help kill that overwhelmed feeling
  • Break it Down – sure you know you should start now – but how?  Start by breaking the project into smaller steps or tasks and start tackling them 1,2, 3 – maybe first up is researching your subject, next up is writing a draft of your presentation and third up is pulling together all the pictures for it…
  • Pace Yourself – figure out how many days you have until the project is due – and don’t count weekends, unless you’re really going to work – and then divide the project into as many mini-goals as your have days to finish – for instance if you have to read a whole book for a book report, divide up the number of chapters by days – but be sure to leave a day or two to write the report
  • Check your List – keep a checklist of your goals so you can track your progress to the deadline – remember if one of the tasks took longer than you thought, be sure to adjust your goals to fit into the time you have left….

So see – even those long term project are no big deal with these tips – next up I’ll show you how to manage your schedule.
