Organizing Project: Kid’s Study Area – Before and After
Come to Order can help students organize their desk area to create homework-friendly spot. Here are before and after shots of one room we organized recently:
|Desk area before||Desk area before|
|Desk area after – We kept a few decorative items, but mostly, the desk area stores items needed to complete homework||We found a better home for many of her books, awards, and knickknacks.|
Our biggest task was deciding which items belonged on the desk and then finding new homes for things that didn’t belong. Then we took a “containerizing” approach to group like items together and store them in logical places. Because we also organized other areas of her room, she now knows where to put clothes, purses, books, and knickknacks. By giving everything an assigned space, it’s easier for her to keep her desk area organized and oriented to homework.
