Organization can prevent middle schoolers from feeling overwhelmed with work. Your child might benefit from:
- A planner to track assignments, activities and test dates
- Different colored binders or folders (one for each subject) to store materials.
- A timer. Set it and have your child work until it rings. Then he gets a break.
