I am wondering if you have any suggestions or ideas on how to teach my son (now 8 years old, 3rd grade) organization.

I’m in the same boat. My 3rd grader is having trouble keeping track of things as well. This is the year teachers stop reminding the children and let them start to keep track of their own things.

Some are ready. Some are not.

If you can make a checklist – words and pictures -and laminate the list or stick it into a page protector sheet and have him say each item out loud and answer ”Yes” or ”NO” out loud as you get ready and packs up his bag.


    Do I have my:

  • Backpack
  • Lunch
  • Forms signed by mom & dad
  • Agenda signed
  • Homework
  • Book to read

You do it with him at home the night before and in the morning and send a copy of the list to the teacher so she can get him started in this habit at school as he packs up to leave. I would staple it to the inside of his agenda also.

Overkill is good at the beginning.

He’ll get the idea very soon.

If he needs to see things as he goes through the list, keep a bin next to the book bag where he can place things before he packs them.
