Tips to Develop Stronger Organization Skills at Home
Organization skills at home lead to better grades in school. But what do organization skills look like? How can you tell if your child needs help developing better organization skills?
Messy bedrooms. Untidy book bags. Forgotten assignments. Missing school notes… as a parent, you’ve probably dealt with these issues. After all, not everyone is naturally good at organizing, and it’s not a skill that is normally taught in schools.
Luckily, there’s good news! The skills we use to be organized at home are the same skillset that leads to better grades in school. Skills such as sorting, arranging, grouping, categorizing … These are all skills that can be practiced at home and transferred to the classroom.
That’s because the act of organizing, sorting and arranging objects leads to the ability to mentally organize information.
If students can organize their sock drawer, they can organize their study and learning habits as both these activities draw on a similar set of skills.
