How are you today? Today’s post is for the Christian teacher or homeschooling parent. Well, not entirely. Anyone can learn something from today’s Education Blog by DUO Inspirations. Organization is important for everyone.
I hear all the time, “I would like to be more organized.” Maybe, I hear it all the time, because I say it all the time. LOL! However, I know that I am not the only person who says it. Many people struggle with organizational skills in one or more facet of their lives.
Probably the most basic concept of organization is that everything has a place. If there isn’t a place for something, we need to prepare a place for it. Even Jesus, “prepares a place” in John 14:2. We are called to do the same.
While learning, being organized often means things like having folders, planners, pencil holders, cubbies, backpacks, notebooks, and binders in which to hold things. Keeping those things filled with proper things in the correct order and in the right place is being organized. Other ways of being organized in education are to have charts, tables, diagrams, and infographics to keep information organized.
Having labels for things is another way to stay organized. In our every day life, we may have labels for food in pantries, tools in toolboxes, and crafts in craft supply bins. We see labels in many places, even on the computer. The internet tabs we open have labels. The documents we open have labels. In education, one way to have labels and to stay organized is to label the sections of our notebook or having binder covers.
That leads me to my next point. DUO Inspirations is happy to create binder covers for you. Here is the first set. Each image in the set is like the one below, except instead of “binder covers” are the words for the subjects.
Good organization skills are important. It makes work more time effective. Organization also cuts down on frustrations, chaos, lost items, and other self-made obstacles. Being more organized often leads to being more successful. Sounds good to me! What about you?
Now, it is your turn.
Are you organized? Do you use binder covers already? What subjects do you teach? What labels would you like for your binder? What is your favorite color? I am open to chatting about creating personalized and custom binder covers for you and to add to my product list. So, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to reading your comments and messages. Also, if you purchase this year and enjoy the product, please keep DUO Inspirations in mind for next year.

How are you today? I hope you are well. Today, I would like to talk about homework planning and organization. I don’t know how it was for you, but I had a separate little notebook that I wrote assignments in back in the day. It was helpful, but didn’t do enough. It wasn’t big enough to see the whole picture and I wasn’t always good about looking back to see if I had any big projects due or anything like that. How did you write down assignments? How do your students write down assignments today? Do they write down assignments?
Organization and planning are important skills that students will use not only in school, but also for the rest of their lives in all that they do. Yet, they are skills that are often overlooked. Do you teach your students homework planning and organization?
DUO Inspirations created a “Homework Planning Packet” that is meant to encourage organization and planning, as well as the completion of homework. It comes with a “Homework Planning Chart” page where students can write down class, date, assignment, due (date), materials, and progress. It also comes with a “Homework Project Planner” page that can be used to plan bigger projects. The latter entails class, project name, date given, date due, materials needed, and steps with a place to check off the steps as they are completed.
The “Homework Planning Packet” can be used in many ways. Print enough pages as necessary to use for the entire school year. Use the “Homework Planning Chart” day-by-day or class-by-class. If you want to save paper, print only a few of each, laminate them, and fill them out with dry erase pens.
Teachers can use the pages of the “Homework Planning Packet” to teach a class on organization and planning. Discuss the importance of planning and organization with students, and then walk them through the steps. This is particularly helpful when planning bigger projects. Teach students to break bigger projects down into manageable steps and work on them gradually instead of leaving everything for the last minute.
You can check out the “Homework Planning Packet” here. It will be a helpful resource for you and your students.
Now, it is your turn.
