If you’ve been a part of the Simply Placed community for a while, you know that we’re big proponents of planning as an organization strategy; even just for a few minutes a day. Taking a little time to prioritize, plan each day and follow that plan to the best of your ability increases productivity tremendously over just “winging it” and hoping you get the right stuff done. Planning is a skill that can be learned and equipping your child or student with the right tool can help form and cement this habit in the school years, allowing them to carry the practice into their adult life and career.
We’ve written before about our tips for successfully using student planners and featured our favorite planner for students, the Academic Planner from Order Out of Chaos.
