Did you know that February is National Time Management Month? This is a well laid-out lesson plan for getting your students to think about budgeting their time wisely. There is an emphasis on equating the concept that time is money, but there are also many suggestions for how students can organize their time. Find charts for students to use to make a daily schedule, a weekly and monthly planner, and a homework chart. Show the video of kids talking about their busy lives and what they try to do to make everything work. There are also several suggestions on how to extend the lesson and links to the time management game and a poem about managing time.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to be doing this, or that I get to work with PBS. I grew up with PBS and their programming is a large part of what made me realize the value of combining education with creativity. I feel like me and Big Bird are basically co-workers now. We’ll be posting a new episode every other week on our YouTube page, and I’ll still be maintaining this blog like always. You’ll even get added bonus material to go along with each episode and expand your knowledge that much more.

“My model for business is the Beatles. They were four guys who kept each other’s kind of negative tendencies in check. They balanced each other, and the total was greater than the sum of the parts. That’s how I see business: Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”— Steve Jobs (“60 Minutes,” 2003)
