MAT CHAT TOPIC OF THE MONTH:

ORGANIZATION:

ORGANIZATION IS AN EXTREMELY IMPORTANT LIFE SKILL TO LEARN. BEING ORGANIZED IS HAVING THINGS ARRANGED IN A SYSTEMATIC WAY. WHEN WE ARE ORGANIZED, WE KNOW THERE IS A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING AND HAVE EVERYTHING IN ITS PLACE. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO ORGANIZE OUR LIVES AND SCHEDULES SO WE KNOW WHAT WE HAVE TO DO AND WHEN.

DEAR PARENTS AND/OR GUARDIANS:

This month we are learning about organization and why it is such an important skill to develop and use. In our school, we expect students to be organized and ready to go at every class. We want them to understand the concept and the importance of being organized. We expect our students to organize their belongings, their schedules and their homework. Being organized will help our students reach their goals in our class, at school and at home. Organization is very important for our students to learn.

HOW CAN YOU HELP??

****Be a role model.

Our kids are always watching. Make sure you have things at home organized so your children will see how helpful organization can be

****Keep a family calendar with everybody's schedules and events on it.

Show your kids the calendar and explain how it is useful for your family. Have them put events and martial arts classes on the calendar.

****Talk to your kids about the importance of organization.

Give examples of times you weren't organized and the consequences of that. Explain how you would do things over with more organization.

****Have your kids get ready for school the night before.

Have A Great Month!
