It’s latest duty…
This year I have not just one but two kiddos in school.
The amount of school work scattered on our kitchen counters is out of control.
No can ever find anything in that tornado of school projects (though I did found a stale, mushed up cracker from who knows when in the pile).
We needed a system.
Come in the door, hang your back pack on the magnetic hook on the side of cart.
When it’s homework time we can unpack the bag and start sorting.
Things that they’ll be working on all week such as spelling, sight words, math packets go on their shelf.
Each kid has a posted check list of things needed to get done each day so I don’t need to nag all afternoon.
Each child also has their own shelf with accessories that are color coordinated so there’s no mistaking who’s is who’s.
Most every supply they’ll ever need is at the homework station.
No more excuses for not doing their homework because they “couldn’t find a pencil.”
Pa-lease, I invented that excuse.
They can even see for themselves what events are scheduled for the day.
Oh yes, we’re painstakingly organized now.
Hey Mc-ee-dees is the most successful fast food chain because of their SYSTEM for moving food, not because they have the best burgers.
We’ve got ourselves a system now!
