How To Start Off The School Year Right

Student Planner

It’s that time of the year again.  It’s a time where most parents are jumping for joy and are in a most delightful mood.  Then, on the other hand, there are some parents that are kinda sad to see their babies grow up for their very first day of school.  They don’t want to let go.  But it’s ok.  Your kiddos will be more than fine.  We all did it.  I did it.  Many years ago.  Lol.

It’s the beginning of a new school year again.  Boy did this summer go by fast.  But don’t all summer months go by fast.  Our spring wasn’t the greatest and it took so long for the real summer to kick in.  And now it’s already time to go back to school.

Well . . . we have to make the best of it.  Don’t we?  I too still dread the going-back-to-school day as does my teenage daughter.  To me, it means summer is coming to a close.  No more going to the beach, no more picnics in the park, no more sandals and shorts.  Hence the start of heavier sweaters, then graduating to coats, then hats and boots.  Whaaaaaa !!  It also means driving my tardy teenage daughter to high school on the way to work and coming in late.  Ugh!!

But I digress . . .  the weather for the start of a new school year will still be fine and it’s going to be decent for at least a few weeks.  Therefore, the transition will be awesome.  We can still wear shorts and sandals.  Yay!!

My dad (God rest his soul) was a stubborn man and refused to wear anything but shorts until the Thanksgiving weekend at the cottage.  (That’s October for us) I think he managed to pull it off for the most part.  Lol.

Now that we have gotten accustomed to the news of a new school year, let’s talk school planners and staying organized.  If you have read my other posts, I am all about being organized.  I have watched my daughter with her school work and how she tries to stay organized with all her school activities, projects, exam and test schedules.  She uses different notebooks and different coloured pens to keep organized.

So, it gave me the idea to create a bunch of helpful worksheets, schedules and calendars that will benefit not only high school students but elementary and college/university levels.  Start the school year off right by being organized and ready to buckle down and get things done.

Students of all ages have a lot on their plates when school starts. When the projects, assignments, tests and exams start coming their way, it will be very hard to stay committed to being organized. Unless you have a plan and a system to write important dates and material down on a schedule. There will be no more excuses to tell the teacher “miss, the dog ate my homework” Lol !!!

The schedules and calendars I have created could be kept separately in a special binder with dividers and clear sheet protectors to keep things tidy and organized.  You will not have to worry anymore about missing an assignment deadline or what to study for on an upcoming test. You will have written all that information down on these easy-to-use worksheets.

here are some of the things you could use FOR YOUR STUDENT PLANNER:

  1. Colourful binder
  2. Spine Labels
  3. Paper – at least 24-30lbs to print out your student planner
  4. Clear Sheet Protectors – keep your new schedules and lists clean and free of sticky fingers
  5. Dividers – for each calendar, schedule, checklist – makes it easy to find
  6. Divider Labels – for the dividers and the binder spine
  7. Colourful Pens
  8. Pencils
  9. Pencil Case
  10. Erasers

You will see how these worksheets will be invaluable to the student in your household. You will appreciate the fact that you or your child will only have to worry about getting good grades.

With These Worksheets:

  1. You will have a 2-page view of the entire year to put important notes
  2. You will have a place to list your subjects, important dates, your goals, your achievements, your contacts, etc
  3. You will be able to record the due dates and dates of all your assignments/projects, tests and exams
  4. You will be able to keep track of your class schedule
  5. And much much more

Good luck to you all. I wish you nothing but the best and all the success in the world. And I really hope that my worksheets keep you organized.
