Getting (and keeping) Your Kids Organized for School Success

Movies and TV shows like to depict geniuses as slobs. What they don’t show you is the parents, spouses, and staff who cleaned up after those messy intellectuals and helped them on their way to fame and fortune. Of course, your kids won’t always have you to pick up after them, and you have better things to do than spend your free time cleaning up your little geniuses’ messes (like cheering on their successes!) 

Organization is key to anybody’s success, so it’s important for parents to give their child the tools they need to help them learn how to stay organized. It’s not always easy, especially if you aren’t the most organized individual yourself. Fortunately, there are some tools you can use to help your child, and maybe even yourself in the process, learn how to stay more organized for better success at school. 

1. Keeping an Organized Backpack

A backpack is a great place to start when it comes to better organization. If your child uses their backpack as little more than a tote bag for transporting their belongings from Point A to Point B, then now is the time to pause and get things sorted. First, take a look at the backpack your child owns and determine whether it is a good backpack for organization. A child’s backpack should have multiple pockets that will allow them to neatly sort and store different items, from pens and pencils to books and papers. From there, you can purchase accessories such as a good binder and then mark them with tools such as school labels so they will not get lost even if they are left out of the child’s backpack at any point in the day.

2. Start Using Technology Now!

Let’s face it. When it comes to technology, we’re already the dinosaurs. Our kids have been involved in the world of tech since they were born, and are already thriving in a digital world. That means we should already be encouraging children to begin using technology to stay organized if they are not doing so already. After all, as adults we use technology as an organizational tool in every aspect of our daily lives, helping us stay on top of daily tasks with multiple reminders to do this and to do that. However, it’s also important to remember that unlike us adults, children are still a bit young to feel indebted to check in with multiple to-do lists and task lists per day. Try setting up a single daily checklist on their computer for your child to take a look at.

3. Color Coding is Always Fun! 

Kids love color, and using color to help your child stay organized can be a great option! Color can help children place similar items together—for example, it can help them put all items within the same category of books together, or all items related to the same class. You can get school label stickers in a variety of colors, making it easy for your child to label different objects and to organize them the way they prefer. This can also make it easier for them to sort them out later when it’s time to put away those items and clean up. 

School labels also help keep your child from losing their things, whether those items are their backpack, their school supplies, pieces of clothing, or other important objects a child may have brought with them to class.
