Encourage Independent Learning!

When our children are middle schoolers, we often feel like there’s a lot of time left to teach and train them. After all, high school is still a few years away, and graduation four years beyond that! But, it all tends to sneak up on us, and we suddenly realize just how much last-minute preparation we need to pour into our students.

That’s one of the reasons early time management training is so important, and middle school is a perfect time to start! Middle schoolers are at an ideal stage of learning to begin grasping time management skills, and the Student Planner is here to help. Specially designed to train middle schoolers to develop routines, keep track of assignments, and manage general life tasks, the Student Planner helps lay foundations that will carry your child solidly through high school and into adulthood.

Step by Step Instructions

The planner opens with a comprehensive article outlining how to best utilize each section of the planner.

Weekly Layout

In an effort to keep students on task, the weekly layout includes designated areas for daily assignments, practice, and chores. This should aid students in remembering to plan for each area of life.

Routine

After establishing a daily routine with your student, they can utilize the five boxes on each weekday to check off completion. The flexibility within the routine section allows you to create a routine that helps train habits. I suggest training children in a morning routine such as:

  • 1. Make your bed
  • 2. Clean your room
  • 3. Brush your teeth
  • 4. Wash your face
  • 5. Get dressed for the day
After a student has established a habit in their morning routine, they can create additional routines for school, extracurricular activities, and other daily routines that help them grow into a responsible young adult.

Reference

With a whole new look, the reference section has a more modern design and updated information.

New! Accessories Available!

Using the Student Planner

A WALK THROUGH THE STUDENT PLANNER

You have your planner prepped and ready to go for the new year. But, what about your children?

Believe it or not, our children can begin to learn organizational and time management skills at a very young age. The Well Planned Day Family Homeschool Planner includes resources to help teach your young learners how to manage their time and work through a to-do list. But, starting around fourth grade, many children are ready to learn how to maintain their own planner. That is the thought behind the design of my Student Planners.

Whether you are preparing to teach your student how to use his or her brand new planner or are still trying to decide if a Student Planner is a good fit, here’s the chance to take a look inside this year’s edition of the Dazzling Doodles or Camping Camo Student Planner while I walk you through each section.

LEARNING TO PLAN

These pages are packed full of information to help your student learn how to plan. First, you will an article walking you through how to use the planner and create routines. Next, you’ll find additional tools to help the school year get off to a great start.

MY SCHEDULE

Use this page to keep track of things that happen every day, such as school subjects, music lessons, sports practice, co-op, or other daily/weekly activities. This is also where you will record routines, as described in the planning article. Consider helping your student create color-coding or abbreviation keys to reduce what he or she has to write every day. For instance, math can be marked with an M and music with Mu. You can use blue for family activities and green for school or pick a different color for each school subject.

MY READING GOALS

At the beginning of each semester, your student can note a few books that would be a good challenge for the semester. Throughout the semester, mark the completion date for each book and add other titles that come to mind.

Why Middle Schoolers Should Use A Planner

3 REASONS TO TEACH YOUR STUDENT HOW TO PLAN

Did you know that the best time for students to begin to establish good time management habits is somewhere in the third to fifth grade range? We might argue that we aren’t planners by nature, so why should we force such things on our children? Perhaps Will wants to be like Daddy, and Daddy doesn’t plan, so why should he? Maybe Hannah has a great memory like Mommy’s and keeps track of everything well, so there’s no reason to bother with a planner.

Here are three reasons to set aside those arguments and consider teaching your child how to plan!

FORM HABITS EARLY ... AND KEEP THEM AROUND

Habits are being formed, even in elementary school, that will have a lasting impact on life. It’s true that you don’t ever really forget how to ride a bike, but it’s a whole lot easier to learn that skill as a child than as an adult. The muscle memory just works better! The same is true of planning. A habit of creating routines, setting goals, and prioritizing to-do lists is much easier to develop when life is uncomplicated than when the fullness of adulthood hits. Teach your child to ride the planning bike now, and he or she will carry that smoothly into high school and adulthood, naturally incorporating the skills into daily life.

Student Planners

While homeschooling, one of my daughters seemed to struggle to get her math done in a timely manner. She was fantastic at solving math problems but lacked a sense of urgency in completing her lessons.

Spending time in prayer over the frustration and the need for help, I came up with an idea. With a sheet of paper in hand, I jotted down each of her lessons for the day and then added other chores and responsibilities.

When I communicated expectations and gave details in a written format, she excelled! Within a few weeks, she was commenting on my beautifully designed planner, so I created one for her to have all of her information in written form. All my planners began with a need at home and now are published for all homeschool families to benefit from.

Frequently Asked Questions

What age is this planner recommended for?

This planner is designed for students in 5th-8th grade.

How do I encourage time management skills in children too young for this planner?

Your Well Planned Day planner provides the perfect tool for younger children! In that planner, you will find tear-out cards with space for chores on one side and school assignments on the other. Simply tear out the cards, write each child's name at the top, laminate each card, then use wet erase markers to note chores and assignments for each week. Wipe them off at the end of the week and begin again on Monday!

How do my students use the routine boxes?

Does your student have sets of tasks that are the same each day? For instance, what does his or her morning or bedtime routine look like? Assign a number to each routine set (for instance, morning routine can be #1) and make a list in the front of the planner so you student knows all tasks that must be accomplished before completing that routine. Once all of those tasks are completed each day, he or she may check off that number. Find more detailed information in the "How to Use Your Planner" article in the planner.

Does this planner replace a need for Well Planned Day?

Although middle schoolers can learn to keep up with a great deal on their own, they're probably not quite ready to be independently responsible for school assignments yet. Well Planned Day, My Well Planned Day online planner and lesson plans, or a curriculum with established lesson plans are still a good idea.
