A homework station is just what it sounds like – a set place in your home that helps your school-aged kids focus on their homework. With a new school year started, you may be feeling the need for a bit of homework organization. Kick this year off right with these homework station ideas.
7 Homework Station Ideas
First thing children do when they come home from school is drop everything! Get rid of those trip hazards by making your own school bag nook. In addition to a place for hanging backpacks, it’s a great place for a bulletin board or white board to keep track of all those assignments, study dates, and big events.
Use this homework printable to keep your children on target. Frame it and use a dry erase marker to mark each item as it’s completed. Everyone likes the feeling of checking items off a list, right?! Well, even if your kids don’t enjoy the list checking phenomenon, you will love checking things off for them.
If you don’t have room for a desk or your children tend to spread out at the kitchen table, you might want a portable homework station. Find a tray to house your homework station and then fill it with all your needed school supplies. Pencils, and markers, and erasers…oh my!
If you have a small space, you might also consider a free standing homework station. Each shelf can be dedicated to a different system. I love the idea of using magazine boxes to organize papers. You could even use that for all those papers that come home from school and need to be reviewed!
Sometimes it can be hard to focus on homework. This study station can help your child focus on the task at hand by blocking their view of anything distracting, while replacing it with pictures and documents that will help them in their educational endeavors. The best part is, your child can decorate their tri-fold board to their own taste. Binder clips, envelopes, and stickers are perfect additions.
If your child has lots of homework assignments, try this teacher’s homework organization idea. Grab a frame for each subject, fill it with colored paper and use letter stickers to add the subject. Then use a dry erase marker to add any upcoming assignments. It’s a great way to keep track of long term projects.
