Provide A Container For The Student’s Belongings

Why should I do it:

  • Provides students a separate place for his/her assignments and class material
  • Provides a student struggling with attention, organization, time management issues with a separate area away from others

When should I do it:

  • When a student has attention, organization, time management difficulties, or cannot stop fidgeting and playing with their materials and belongings

How do I do it:

  • Obtain a container (milk crate, box, plastic bin, etc.) and place the student’s materials in it separated into subject areas.
  • Place the container inside the classroom at the beginning stages.
  • If student continues to have difficulties with organization, you can move the crate outside the classroom so student can take a break to go retrieve his/her belongings.
  • Evaluate the system with the student on a weekly basis.
  • Provide praise when student can use the took effectively
  • Provide encouragement when student shows signs of struggle
