Countdown

Happy National Planner Day!

Happy National Planner Day! Without a doubt, planning is a great way to stay organized and stay on top of daily tasks! However, as a student, planning can be extremely difficult and intimidating. Organizing class, assignments, meetings, and more can get stressful very fast. Thankfully, we thought of some fun tips that will not only keep our students organized, but also keep your planner cute and vibrant!

Color Coding

Color coding is an amazing way to keep track of class assignments and more. Assigning a certain class to a color is an easy way to jot down assignments or fill out your week without having to add which class it is specific to. You can also assign meetings and appointments to a color and add them in as well. Color coding is not only limited to fun pens and markers, but you can also add stickers, sticky notes, washi tape and more.

 Write EVERYTHING down

This next tip is a life saver when it comes to planning as a student, write everything down! Sometimes we give ourselves too much credit when it comes to memory. Though this may work for some, writing everything down eliminates the risk of forgetting tasks, assignments, meetings, or anything you have going on throughout the day. Trying to keep all these things in memory is risky, however, seeing everything written down in front of you allows student planners to easily remember their day-to-day activities.

 Be Extremely Specific

When planning as a student, being extremely specific when writing anything down will be lifesaving. For example, if a student has a chapter of reading for Spanish, rather than writing “read for Spanish”, write down the specific pages you want to read on specific days. An example of this could look like, “on Wednesday read for Spanish, pg.49-63”, this allows you to plan out when you will finish your reading and allows you to get a better idea of how your week will look.

  In conclusion all these strategies are great ways to help students stay organized and on top of their tasks. Color coding is a great way to easily organize everything into easy to see sections, writing everything down avoids the risk of forgetting tasks at hand, and being specific allows students to better map out how their week is going to look. We really hope you enjoyed these tips and look forward to seeing all your planners
