As the summer vacation comes to an end and back-to-school-season begins, it can be really difficult for children to get back to the same old school routine. 

It may take some time for students to come out of the lazy routine of summers to the busy and fast pace of the new academic year.

But it is important for students to stay organized and create a distraction-free zone at home.

We share with you 5 tips that will help students in getting ‘back to the school routine: 


1. Stay Organized 

Consistency is the key to student success.

Write down your general weekly schedule like when you will do your homework, when will you review everything that you have learned at school, when will you exercise and so on. This way it will be easy for you to come into the routine.

This will also help in setting up a framework that keeps you focused and on track.

2. Avoid Distractions In Your Study Place

If your study place includes TV, PlayStation, or any other device that is capable of distracting you then that’s not an ideal place for you to study.

Ensure that you surround yourself in a place that motivates you to study and develops in you the love for learning.

You can have a bookshelf around and your study table with all the school supplies within an arms reach. 

3. Keep All Your School Supplies Neatly On A Shelf

While studying when you need a particular folder or binder, you can easily grab it from the shelf. 

If your shelf is a messy block with papers and folders not neatly organized then you may not only make it messier but will also be wasting a lot of time.

Keep your belongings and other school supplies neat & in order and save yourself a lot of precious time. 

4. Make An Academic Planner To Keep A Track Of Assignments & Deadlines

It is really important that students understand how crucial it is to keep a track of all the assignments and the upcoming deadlines. 

By having all this information in one place, you will know where to look to find out what you need to do. 

This planner will help you in prioritizing your tasks and will also assist in setting a scheduled timetable.  

5. List Your Academic Goals

Write down a list of goals you have that you are willing to achieve for this new academic year. Is it your grades that you want to improve? Want to get into basketball team? Whatever goal you have, list it down.

When you write this all down, you are able to plan and prioritize your goals. 

Having that list can be a driving and motivating force to help you achieve them.


Every new academic year is an opportunity for a fresh start. Every student has the potential in them to make it happen. 

Always remember, your journey as a student in life is about progress, not perfection.
