Back-to-school is quickly approaching and for some of you, it’s already here! This means homework is starting to pile up on your kid’s schedule, practice for sports are beginning and group projects will be taking place in your home. While no one really loves doing homework, it’s an important part of learning for your child, and keeping them motivated to finish it on time is imperative. A special study space can make homework more manageable and can also motivate your child to get the work done.
Choose a space in your home that makes sense to do homework. Whether this is a nook in your kitchen, a desk area in your child’s room or in a separate office, an organized and functional space will make homework easier to focus on.
By clearing clutter from a dedicated homework space, your child will be able to free their mind from distractions. Make room in the homework area by only keeping essentials needed for homework – pencils, a ruler, a calculator, desk lamp, paper and perhaps a clock. By keeping supplies needed for homework, your child will have everything they need to succeed.
Keep your child motivated by keeping the space bright and organized. Consider painting the walls a brighter color to keep the creative juices flowing, or set up a vision board where they can have motivation in the form of pictures or quotes.
Make homework time fun with a smartly organized space for your child. They’ll be getting their work done in no time!
