A friend told me that one school year, the first homework assignment given to one of her children was to create a “homework station.” The teacher sent home a list of requirements, and required the children to make a poster with pictures of the homework station they created and write a report about it! While that may be a little over the top, the concept of a homework station is a good one. I found a wide range of ways that creative do-it-yourselfers have incorporated this idea into their family homes. Check out these 5 Ways to Make a Homework Station.
I know that a few of you have already started your school year, and many of the rest of you are anticipating it in the coming weeks. It’s true, when it comes to keeping track of carpools, lunch menus, field trip forms, homework, backpacks, and shoes…..things can get overwhelming! Making sure your house is organized in a way that contributes to helping everyone being able to get ready independently is a huge step towards eliminating some of the stress of the morning rush. I hope these 5 Ways to Get Your House Ready for School will give you some ideas that will help your family during the upcoming school year.
