Organization is a major focus for our family this year, so I figured...why not carry that over to my classroom?
My middle schoolers are notorious for their developing organization skills, especially my 6th graders who are new to the game. Some of these kids struggle immensely with changing classes, particularly in the area of supply organization. You know that kid who shows up to science class with nothing but a broken pencil the size of a paperclip, a pack of post-its that have all been used to showcase his/her artwork and a disheveled ELA binder? Well....this new year is all about helping them get on the fast track to success!
Here is a printable locker liner that I created to assist struggling students with planning out their locker stops and supply needs. The plan is to conference with the student (during lunch or homeroom) and fill out the form together, discussing the optimal times to gather and drop off materials. Once complete, the list will be posted into their locker. With the help of other teachers, we will praise this student for coming to class prepared according to the plan and support/remind the student as needed. I hope this printable helps you and many students in need of an organizational boost this year.
