Homework Tips: Creating an Organized Study Space
Tips for Creating an Organized Study Space
In the Zone
Minimize distractions. Set aside cellphones and make an effort to create your study space in a room without a TV. Keep the space cozy, with a comfortable desk chair and a lamp or task light.
Supply and Demand
Make your study space portable. Store pencils, pens, scrap paper, notebook paper, notecards and other school supplies in plastic containers like Storage Solutions. When kids can grab what they need quickly, it’s easier to get a head start on that night’s homework.
Time at Hand
Hang a calendar and encourage your kids to add important assignment due dates and test dates so that they can begin to master time management and lessen the likelihood of late-night cram sessions or last-minute book reports.
