Let me first say that me and organized don’t usually belong in the same sentence, but for 3 school years now this system has totally worked for me, so that’s gotta say something.
I have 3 kids, one that is off to college and twin middle schoolers. Over the years we’ve evolved how we handle homework in our house. We have discovered that what works best for us is to have everyone working at the kitchen table together. Then mom and dad are close by if they need help and there are less distractions.

This however created a problem in the kitchen. It seemed I always had pens, pencils and paper all over the table even after they were done. A couple of years ago, I got the idea to create a Homework Station on my kitchen table. Everything they need contained in one place and it’s easily moved out of the way when needed.
