It’s hard to believe but many of the kids in Atlanta will be going back to school very soon. Going back to school means that homework time is on the way. So many students are busier than ever these days with after school activities, sports, and social events. It can be consistently challenging for them to juggle everything and keep up with after-school assignments. Help ensure your child’s academic success by setting up the best possible “home-work” station in your home.
Kids face so many distractions these days. Keep them on the right track by removing their study time from high traffic areas like the kitchen table or living room. Set them up in a “quiet zone” where they can easily concentrate on homework. Other family members should be respectful to a student’s study time which should always be TV and cell phone free.
A clean and clutter-free workspace is essential. Make sure that needed office supplies are close at hand in a simple storage box or mobile cart. Aside from an adjustable desk lamp, keep the work area clean of everything else.
Make sure your designated homework area has a large enough desk that allows students to spread out multiple books and materials. A Homework Caddy can help kids stay organized while keeping papers off of desk areas. Or for those older kids, hang a sturdy hook where backpacks and school bags can rest.
Good lighting is critical to students. If possible, set up the homework station near a large window with lots of natural light. Make sure a desk lamp is also near to make sure sufficient lighting will be available to older children who may have work into the evening hours.
