HOW TO AVOID BEEN TARDY FOR SCHOOL.
When being late for school becomes the norm rather than the exception, then it’s time to examine what you’re not getting right. Getting to school on time is a good habit to set you up for being punctual throughout life, so the sooner it’s learned, the easier things will be for you. Being on time requires planning, good organization and a sound routine.
STEP 1. SET OUT YOUR CLOTHES THE NIGHT BEFORE.
Put them somewhere they won’t get dirt or crumpled.
STEP 2. PACK YOUR BAG AND HOMEWORK THE NIGHT BEFORE.
Get into the habit of doing this before you go to sleep. Then when you wake up you don’t have to worry about forgetting any books or supplies at home.
STEP 3. MAKE YOUR LUNCH THE NIGHT BEFORE.
Make your lunch the night before. Place all non-perishable items into your lunchbox and the perishables in the refrigerator, ready to grab and pack.
STEP 4. KEEP YOUR ROOM TIDY.
This makes it easier to find things, so that you won’t be hunting for things high.and low each morning.
METHOD TWO OF THREE ( BEDTIME )
STEP 1. CONSIDER HAVING YOUR BATH BEFORE BEDTIME.
This will save time in the morning if you can’t get up early enough.
STEP 2. EAT HEALTHY SNACKS BEFORE BEDTIME.
you get hungry don’t eat sweets or drink caffeine, as these can keep you alert and awake.
STEP 3. GO TO BED ON TIME.
Ensure that you get sufficient sleep for your body’s needs. If you wake up late every day because you’ve been on Facebook or World of Warfare all night, you’ve only got yourself to blame. Your body needs sufficient sleep and a sleep deprived body will prevent you from waking up on time. Go to sleep around after half past eight, nine o-clock. Then you will wake up early because you have had a full 8 hours sleep.
Some people like doing work early in the morning rather than at night. This is something you might wish to consider for homework early to bed, then getting up early to do your homework.
STEP 4. SET AN ALARM.
Whether this is an alarm clock or a digital wake-up device such as an app or phone, always remember to set it. If you have a sophisticated alarm, set it to allow you to sleep in on the weekends and wake up in time on schooldays. Try setting the alarm clock a little earlier than when you usually get up but not too early just a few minutes earlier.nting for things high and low each morning.
METHOD THREE OF THREE (IN THE MORNING)
STEP 1. GET UP WHEN YOU HEAR THE ALARM.
A frequent problem is slapping the snooze button and drifting off again.Don’t do this. Instead, when your alarm goes off, think fast, get out of bed straight away. If the snooze button turns out to be hard to resist, place your alarm somewhere else in the bedroom so that you have to get up to turn it off. By the time you’re up, you’re up.
Move your alarm clock to the complete opposite side of the room (away from your bed). So you have to physically get up out of bed each time the alarm goes off.
Play the alarm or music as loudly as you can in the morning, so that you can’t stand it any longer, and you just want to get out of bed.
STEP 2. TAKE A SHOWER OR BATH IF NEEDED.
If not, get dressed. Head down to breakfast and eat at a sensible pace. Don’t bolt down your food.
STEP 3. BRUSH YOUR TEETH AND YOUR HAIR.
If needed, wash your face as well.
STEP 4. GET OUT OF THE DOOR AND ON YOUR WAY.
You’ll now be sure get to school before it’s too late!
