In this free organization activity, kids will practice organizing a room by cutting out objects and pasting them into a bedroom scene. Students will discuss organization, what it means to be organized, and actually put the skills into action with the activity! Student directions with photos are included. This is an ideal introduction activity for teaching organization to kids and young adults.

After completing the activity, students will share with a partner and discuss how they know their scenes are organized. This student dialogue is important because there is not only one way to organize as long as the organizational system makes sense.

Note that this is a small sample of my Organization Boot Camp that focuses on explicitly teaching and practicing all organization skills.

How to Use
This lesson and activity can be used in large or small groups by the regular education teacher, special education teacher, or other support professional. These materials can also be used during advisory for older students. A detailed educator guide is included with step-by-step instructions for the activity with student objectives and discussion questions. While all students can most assuredly benefit from strategies to strengthen executive functioning and organizational skills, some examples of students most in need include those with ADD/ADHD, Asperger’s Disorder, and Learning Disabilities.

Why Teach Organization Skills?
Organization is a critical executive functioning skill that helps students to complete tasks efficiently and effectively both in and out of school. Kids who struggle with organization might forget homework assignments, not be able to find pages in their binders, keep messy workspaces or lockers, have challenges when planning assignments, struggle to meet deadlines, and more. Simply put, executive functioning skills are necessary life skills.
