[Free Printables] Organization & Wellness Planners

Being organized and having a well-planned schedule is the key to success in school, especially when it comes to virtual or blended learning.

To help keep you and your students on-track and families in the know, we put together a variety of free printable and digital calendars and planning guides. These can be applied in an in-person on an online setting. We have some recommendations for how these can be used in different roles, but the beauty of these sheets is that they can be used however you need them to be used no matter who you are.

We can't plan for every thing, but we can approach this next semester with better strategies to balance the workload and prepare for our best semester yet. Here are a few of our favorite tips for staying organized:

1. Color coordinate

Who doesn’t love colors? Use different colors or pattern to organize different tabs, notebooks, or folders. Not only is this a fun way to feel a little more connected to your work and study materials, by personalizing them, it’s also helpful for keeping relevant information together so you can find it faster when you need it.

2. Make your own rules

Setting personal deadlines and establishing a work routine is a great way to help feel in control of your workload. For some people, working on the task they are least excited to do first is the best way to make sure it gets done. For others, it’s getting the easiest or least time-consuming tasks out of the way, and then focusing on bigger projects. Some people need to set early deadlines to make sure things get done on time. Do what works for you, and then stick to your own rules.

3. Write everything down

Writing down assignments or tasks in a planner is great way to stay organized and remember important details. Be sure to keep your planner somewhere you can get to easily, like on your desk or in your book bag. That way you can get right to it when you need to write something down, or check on what you need to get done for the day.

4. Beware of overcommitting

Set realistic expectations for yourself. Rome wasn’t built in a day! Don’t be afraid to say no if your plate feels too full, or if you think that you won’t be able to give your full attention to something.

5. Plan ahead

Spacing out your work will help make checking things off your to-do list a more manageable and relaxing experience. Sometimes it can be hard to gauge just how long we think a task might take to get done, so it’s a good idea to leave wiggle room, especially if you are working on a larger project, or taking on something new for the first time.
