Time Management
The ability to manage your time so that you are able to do the things that you want and need to do is an important skill.  It is also an ever evolving process.

Organization
Organization of the school and home can help make things run smoothly and allow you to have more time for those things that you like to do best.  Areas that you may do organization and planning for include:  your home in general, your school supplies, and your lessons.

Workboxes
Workboxing is a way to organize your school day.  There is a specific way to do it but it is perfectly fine to adapt it to your situation.  We use workboxes to organize our material so that we have everything we need already in the drawer when we start the school week. Follow the links for more information:
