How to teach organization skills to children

Organization Skills help one stay productive and successful throughout life. Instilling it early in life helps the kids manage their education demands efficiently, and perform daily tasks and plan ahead. Moreover, parents should work with their children to help them form customized daily schedule, using tools like checklists, calendars, etc.

Step 1: Motivate children by explaining the importance and the benefits of organization through real life examples like how much time they can save by planning their homework schedules etc. Instil a sense of ownership and responsibility among children by facilitating them in making their own schedules best suited to their individual needs.

Step 2: Let the children plan their schedules and work accordingly. Provide them with a daily task break up. Peg Dawson, Ed.D, a Nationally certified school psychologist, has advised that some kids might want to finish their homework right after returning home, while other might want to take their own time. This schedule must include other activities like playtime, meals, chores, and bedtimes.

Step 3: Help children monitor their progress through checklists, planner, notebooks etc. Encourage them to cross all the completed tasks as they finish them.

Step 4: Divide a huge task into smaller manageable tasks. A book report can be divided into sections, number of pages to finish each day and started well ahead of the due date. Remember to update the checklist regularly.

Step 5: Track the activities on a wall calendar, and add some future activities and due dates on it as well. (Such as the sports day, exam dates etc)

Step 6: Review the scheduled activities a day ahead to prepare your kids. Lay out gym clothes, sneakers etc a day in advance. Ensure the homework is finished and packed off in the book bag to avoid the morning stress & confusion.

Step 7: Keep reinforcing organization skills in children and monitor the progress made regularly. Richard Gallagher, PhD, and a staff at NYU Child Study centre states that skills in a child need to be taught, practiced & reinforced to make them part of a child’s daily routine. Earned activities, praise & rewards help reinforce the skills that will serve your child well for a lifetime.
