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.
