The clock is ticking down . . . to the first day of school. And in some places, school started this week. This week, people. Are you ready? Is your teen?
If your teen only goes back to school with 1 school supply, I want it to be a student planner. And maybe a pencil to write in the planner. Student planners are so important to student organization, time management, and work completion. See my post on How to Get Your Teen to Use a Planner for my many reasons why a planner is important AND for tips to get your teen to use a planner.
But it shouldn’t be just any old planner. Yes, the one the school provides is fine. However, there are MUCH better student planners out on the market. Planners that will make your children look like time management professionals. Seriously. (And, you can use it, too!)

I am in love with the Academic Planner from Order Out of Chaos. I found it last year while researching my post on planner use. Frankly, I wasn’t pleased with any of the student planners I’d seen or used. After teaching for 15 years, here are my requirements in an academic planner:
- full-sized with plenty of space to write down assignments AND after-school commitments
- monthly and weekly calendars
- hole-punched (so your teen can put it in a binder)
- spot to check of assignments as they are completed
Yet, I couldn’t find a single planner that met those requirements. Am I just too picky?? Nope. Turns out I just needed to search a little longer.
