Helping students use time wisely

April 25, 2012

Learning how to use your time effectively is an important life skill. Why not help students learn it early? Sarah of Mrs. T’s First Grade keeps a Time Wisely Chart to teach time management to her first graders. Her chart is a simple hanging panel with pockets; students have their own pocket labeled with their name/mailbox number.

Every day, students put any unfinished or ongoing work in the pockets. This system provides a clear visual of where students are with their projects and independent work; if one learner has more than the average amount of papers in his or her pocket, the teacher can immediately see this and provide any necessary support. The system can also help to teach students important skills such as organization and responsibility.
