Creating a Homework Station

Creating a Homework Station is a great way to get yourself ready for the new school year! See more on Shutterbean.com

Yesterday, I spent an hour Creating a Homework Station for Cooper so we can get ahead of the school year.  I know he’s going to have a lot more homework this year so we might as well be prepared to tackle it, right??

What goes in our homework station? Let’s make a list:

Homework stations start with a caddy.

Here’s ours:

This is what our homework station looked like after last year. Time to clean it out!

A lot of random things end up in there if we aren’t diligent….

Dump it out and SORT. That’s my favorite part!

I decided that we should use some labels.  If I make it fun to look at, I’ll want to use it, right?

Perhaps it will make us more likely to put things back where they belong?

Whatever it takes!

(tape / favorite pen / other favorite pen)

And this is what it looks like inside now.

As you can see, I used mason jars to separate the crayons/pencils/pens.

On the other side, I actually used small beakers for the erasers and paperclips.

I think this will be the key to us keeping the caddy nice and neat.

I slipped some index cards in there because we could always use some!

I added the labels on the caddy and then put packing tape on top to make sure the label stays on longer.
