When you start thinking about back to school, you probably think about bookbags, new clothes, pens, pencils, crayons, and notebooks. But one item that is often not included on the school supply list is an academic planner.
An academic planner is important for students of all ages because it teaches an essential skill kids need which is how to organize their assignments and schedule. Just as you choose a planner every year for yourself, have you thought about which academic planner is right for your child?
Teaching your child organization and planning skills by learning to use a planner can make a huge difference in their success during the school year. Having the right student planner design may determine if it’s used and how helpful it will be.
Here’s a review of the Best Student Planners for 2018-19 to help you find the right planner for your kids.
