Create a Checklist
Help your child to create a checklist for their locker. This means creating a separate list of items that they will need to get at each locker visit.
If they go to their locker once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once to pack up to leave school at the end of the day, then they will need three separate spots.
Be as specific as possible writing a list of every single item needed for that part of the day. For example: planner, pencil bag, reading book, science textbook, and science notebook.
Don't do this for your child - help support them as they do it themselves. In this way, you are helping your child develop this skill.
I recommend communicating with your child's teachers at school so that they know about the plan and can help reinforce/remind as needed. It helps to work as a team.
Editable Locker Checklist
Not sure how to get started or set up the checklist? I offer an editable locker checklist for purchase through Teachers Pay Teachers.
This editable Word Document has multiple options to choose from:
Option 1: By morning/afternoon & class period
Option 2: By morning and afternoon only
Option 3: By class period
All you have to do is choose the option you like, update it with the class periods and materials, print out a copy, and post it in the locker. Don't forget to allow for the opportunity to decorate it! :)
