{Free Epub} ì The Organized Student: Teaching Children the Skills for Success in School and Beyond Ô eBook or E-pub free

This book took me over six months to read cover to cover, but I think that it s probably better to read and refer to as needed rather than to sit down and read all at once It s an invaluable resource to support a child who is supporting and understanding a disorganized child. This book came highly recommended by my kids developmental pediatrician, and I bought it reluctantly, expecting yet another unrealistic book promising miraculous transformations through elaborate sticker charts and token and reward systems I was pleasantly surprised Donna Goldberg, who has worked professionally with hundreds of disorganized middle and high school students on a one on one basis, shares a wealth of insight into what it s like to be a student today and the variety of challenges k This book came highly recommended by my kids developmental pediatrician, and I bought it reluctantly, expecting yet another unrealistic book promising miraculous transformations through elaborate sticker charts and token and reward systems I was pleasantly surprised Donna Goldberg, who has worked professionally with hundreds of disorganized middle and high school students on a one on one basis, shares a wealth of insight into what it s like to be a student today and the variety of challenges kids face in managing paper, space, and time The book is sprinkled with assessments to help you understand your child s school day, questions I never thought to ask but that immediately helped us to identify and solve some of the problems my son was having Questions like, Where is your locker in relation to your classes How often do you get to go to your locker throughout the day How much time do you have between classes, and is there one teacher who always lets you out late Goldberg stresses that there are many different methods of organization, but the one that works best for your child will be the one that she or he chooses and sets up rather than something external that parents or teachers impose upon the child Consequently, there are lots of options and variations for each area addressed in the book I read through this book off and on over a period of several months to understand the whole philosophy and process prior to attempting to implement anything, highlighting and flagging as I went along Then I went back and reread highlighted sections to create an action plan for addressing these issues with my sons in the order suggested by the author So far I ve helped my 5th grader to reorganize his backpack and streamline his class binders he doesn t have a locker yet and the next step with him will be to set up his portable office for doing school work at home With my older son, who has been lugging around a 50 pound backpack, I will have to tread carefully and ease him into streamlining his paper flow before we even think about his desk, but I think he may even like to read a few chapters of this book on his own to help him understand why we are doing this and what s in it for him I highly recommend this book to any parents of middle school or high school students, but especially for those who are disorganized and or who suffer from ADHD related executive functioning weaknesses, but with this caveat You and your child will need to invest some significant time into implementing the strategies in this book in order to gain anything from it If you re expecting to read the book and then instantly see miracles, you re going to be disappointed If you have children pre fifth grade I highly recommend this book I wish I would have read it when my kids were younger I didn t read it until they were in high school This is a great how to help the student who just can t pull it together and the mom dad who is struggling to figure it out. Required book for an education course While I didn t get much from it as a teacher, I do think this is good for parents looking to help their struggling child. I can recommend this book, based on the fact that I have a very disorganized kid in my house who rather takes after his mother, in fact The general idea of the book is that parents have to help kids, who are being asked to keep it together much younger than ever before At the same time parents need to step up, they need to understand that whatever Fabulous System they use to keep themselves organized may not work for their kid Let the kids explore how to set things up, since they know their I can recommend this book, based on the fact that I have a very disorganized kid in my house who

school schedule and classroom needs best.I needed to hear this My son needed to figure this out too We ve implemented several of the things Goldberg recommends, and I m sure I ll be referring to this

because you are not doing everything the book recommends try one thing that you know you d like to do and commit to doing that I m the kind of person who needs to do something over and over again in

nod to the fact that not everyone is born or sees the benefits to being organized, this is a useful text that can help students and others succeed She has a program, and she s pretty much selling it This is the one way to organize a desk, this is the one way to organize a backpack, etc There are some options for personalizing based on learning style, but no acknowledgement that maybe a tackle box isn t the best solution, so here are some ways to explore other solutions.I did like the stress throughout on not just setting up systems but learning skills this could be generalized to all sorts of people who aren t students. {Free Epub} ⚷ The Organized Student: Teaching Children the Skills for Success in School and Beyond À A must read for parents, The Organized Student contains hands on
