Back to school means back to homework! Make it all a notch easier by setting up a simple homework station. Stock it with supplies your child will need to complete homework and other at-home projects throughout the school year. Allocate or purchase age-appropriate supplies such as:
- Pencils and/or pens (plus, have a reliable pencil sharpener close at hand!)
- Hole punch
- Transparent tape
- Construction paper
- Notebook paper
- Glue and / or glue stick
The above list was provided by my son’s former first grade teacher. Ask your children’s teachers their supply recommendations based on their curriculum and planned projects. My additions to the list include white poster board and empty shoe boxes, but your list and needs may vary.
