Our Homework Center!



One of my readers asked about my organization skills - how I kept everything organized, so I'm going to try to to start sharing more of that on the blog (Although my organization as a whole is still a work in progress!)...

I figured I'd start with our Homework Organization!

-On the top left, I hang some of the kids' art work.
-Top right is a school calendar for the year that shows Teacher Work Days, Early Dismissals, etc.
-Middle left is their school Messenger that shows any events going on at school or reminders.
-Middle right is the snack schedule for Marissa's class so I can keep up with which day is her snack day every month to take snack for her class.
-Middle far right is some ink pens, dry erase markers, etc.
-Bottom left is Hunter's side. It has his Homework Sheet for the week and his words for the week.
-Bottom right is Marissa's side. It has her Homework Sheet for the week and her words for the week.

As you can see, there's also some random things hung up there that I don't want to forget or would like to have on display! :)

This is also our little Homework Center we have in the kitchen - it's real simple and just has some extra notebooks, folders, papers, etc, and a basket that has some extra pencils, scissors, glue sticks, crayons, paint, anything they may need for homework! :)

As you can tell, it's also got some random papers stuffed up there, probably from the kids when they're asked to clean off the table, lol.

Do you have a homework center for your kids?

  1. That is a great idea. I have a bulletin board with a few of my boys awards, etc. Then I have the monthly lunch calendar on the fridge. You've inspired me to organize a little better, though :)

  32. I do not have a homework center for the kids. They sit at the table. I do love the idea of making one though!

    ReplyDelete
  33. huh. that's a cute idea :) maybe i'd have an easier time getting mine to do his work with something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I need to get much more organized, my haos is a big chaos. But the again my daughter is only 2 1/2 yo so no matter how hard I try it's impossible to keep things in the right place. I'll give it a couple of more years :)

  35. What a great idea! You are so organized!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love this idea. I am going to have to try to set something similar up at my house.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So organized! I keep looking at getting one of those 31 organizers, but they're so expensive (IMO).

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is a wonderful idea. I am not nearly as organized.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I don't. But I need to make one. My kids use the table and our desk in the living room.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I love your homework station!! Right now I use a bulletin board for homework and chores, though I could use some improvement on it. I love those 31 organizers, I may have to get one!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I love having everything easy to find in one space. While I don't need a homework station yet, I could use this for mail!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love this idea! My kids are too young for homework but i could make this work for blogging.

    ReplyDelete

  44. We soooo need something like that! My son's supplies are always all over the place! I'm thinking about getting a small roller cart.

    ReplyDelete
  45. What a great looing setup! Im a self-proclaimed organization junkie, so I love keeping things in my home organized. I could use something like this for bills and mail.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Great idea! My oldest graduates next year so he's past a homework board. BUT our youngest starts kindergarten next year (I know - HUGE gap lol) so this would be great for not only homework but also field trip reminders and lunch lists.

    ReplyDelete
  47. THis is a great idea. I love to see how others organize!

    ReplyDelete
  48. my home center in general is a mess but I dont' know where to start. I've eyed this organizer for years too. i should just get it

    ReplyDelete
  49. What a great idea having something like that for homework. We had a little area for my sister and brother to keep their homework items but it was always a mess. We should have thought of having a hanging organizer!

    ReplyDelete
  50. This is a really good idea. I am in school myself so I need a way to organize my homework.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I love organization. Luckily my daughter's current homework is in a binder but next year we'll be doing 2 days home study so this may come in handy.
