Solutions at Home: Quick Tips

-- Check assignment books. Double-check your child's assignment notebooks or planner to make sure that homework is in its proper place once completed. With guidance, she can learn to write down all homework deadlines and avoid last-minute cramming and unpleasant surprises.

-- Keep copies of important papers. Make multiple copies of permission slips, event announcements, and other paperwork to post in several areas of the house. These will serve as visual reminders of important dates and deadlines.

-- Have a hole-punch handy. Keeping a three-hole puncher on your child's desk will help him to make sure that important papers can be easily punched and inserted into his school binder.

-- Have a weekly clean-out. Check your child's belongings daily and help him organize them weekly. Once a week clean out and reorder backpacks, assignment notebooks, and work binders.
