By developing good study habits for yourself, students and/or children, makes getting work done easier and more efficient. Find ways to incorporate these tips or work with your children/students to and you’ll develop good organizational habits that will soon be routine.


1. Create a study area

Determine where the best place is to study and make this your “headquarters.” Make sure whatever location you pick includes materials you may need as well as good lighting.

2. Remove distractions

Try to avoid disturbances and outside noise as much as possible. If your study space is in a high-traffic area, or you’re in a spot where there are people passing through, you might consider moving somewhere with less going on. Use Internet breaks or checking email as rewards for every hour of work, and log out of those programs between breaks. 

3. Set up school supply storage solutions

Make sure you have a system in place to keep all of your supplies and materials organized and easy to find. Big Mouth® or other portable Filers binders, cardboard cubby holes, wall shelves and even shoe boxes all create extra storage space. 

4. Set up a disciplined homework routine
Part of learning to manage your time is to create a regularly scheduled time of day for studying. Try to pay attention to when you’re most mentally alert, and schedule your study sessions around those times.


1. Create a school assignment board

Break down assignments into component parts with specific tasks involved in the project on a whiteboard. It’s a great way to keep kids on track and engaged in the progress of their work when they can easily see what they need to do.

2. Keep a daily schedule

Keep a daily schedule in a planner that delegates the amount of time needed for the most important study priorities. Plan study time in blocks of time (i.e. math assignment, science paper, etc.) 

3. Establish the best study conditions

Determine the best setting for studying. Is it alone or with friends? With music or a quiet setting? 

4. Create visuals from learning

Concept trees and timelines make notes more memorable. Visual representations of relationships help students understand the key facts. Together come up with ways to make pictures or other visual aids to help your students remember details.
