Academic Planner from Order out of Chaos *Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 Academic Planner
A Tool for Time Management

My 11 year old has a hard time staying focused on school work. I am not the most consistent person in the world, and he really thrives on organization. He is not able to get himself organized and know what needs to be done with his schooling each day, though if it is laid before him he is better able to figure out his day. The Academic Planner from Order Out Of Chaos is very helpful in visually allowing him to see his day along with any activities that may be planned as well. 
I love that I can write the subject just once and the planner pages are just a titch smaller than the outside so that they are always present.

The days are divided by Subjects and After School activities which makes it great to share with him the evenings we are busy so he knows he needs to get his schoolwork done earlier in the day.
There is a monthly view page as well as weekly view. This allows a broader scope of the month as well as the individual weeks in the semester.

This planner was developed by ADHD specialist Leslie Josel and I thin kit is an amazing planner to work with kids who may struggle with ADHD to visualize what is expected of them, as well as any other student who wants to be more organized.

I have utilized this planner for my 11 year old, writing assignments for him a couple days in advance. As he completes them he can check off the done box in the corner. I am able to see where I left off in assignments because he is not crossing it off, but instead checking the box.
This is a really great planner!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
