Section 4 Calendar

Keeping a calendar is a great way to keep track of important dates. As adults with busy lives, we must use a calendar for our work appointments. Students don’t think to write down times and dates the same ways as adults. A calendar is a simple yet powerful tool. Many highly productive adults need a phone calendar to remind them about where to go and what to do. Students with executive functions defects would struggle to take the time to fill out a basic tool like a calendar. Never underestimate the power of using an electronic calendar. Imagine if we had just to remember everything. A Google calendar can easily be embedded on a website. A calendar can be shared. Several calendars can be read at the same time. As teachers, we need to take the time to use these organizational tools and encourage our students to do the same. The alternative is forgetting.
