Habit Number 3 - Put First Things FirstThis month we will focus on Habit #3: Put First Things First

Habit #3: Put First Things First

-I spend my time on things that are most important. This means I don’t say no to things I know I should do.
- I set priorities, make a schedule, and fol-low my path.
- I am disciplined and organized.

We are learning about prioritizing this month. Your child will know how to make a plan for completing homework when returning home. They will take into account any extra activities and plan accordingly. Time management is a great skill to learn at a young age.

Organization will also be a focus this week. We will determine if your child’s current or-ganization system is working for him or her and adjust it so that it will work long-term. Sometimes one person’s organization is not best for another person.

How families can encourage Habit #3 at Home:

-Encourage your child to follow his or her unique schedule.
- Discuss how you prioritize with your child. For example, groceries are a priori-ty, so that may be put into a budget before purchasing a new piece of technology.
-Ask your child about how he or she has been following their schedule. Talk about what organization looks like at school and at home.
-Let your child teach a sibling about time management.
