Ready or not, most of our kids will be starting the school year in some kind of virtual or hybrid model. That means a lot of time will be spent at home in a space designated for at-home learning. An organizational system should be in place so your child has a place they can access supplies easily and on their own which will help their productivity. You can set them up for success by having a system in place– it doesn’t have to be elaborate. Below are a few items to get you started on this next adventure. Not listed but important is a good supportive chair and a table or desk where your child can sit and have their own space.
Complete with a sliding drawer, double tray and 5 upright sections. I like this one because kids can store things in multiple areas without it being too cluttered. If you don’t have room on a desk look at the next choice.
5 vertical pockets wall mounted file organizer with small label to classify your documents, the 1 bottom flat tray is great for stationary and desk accessories.
Rolling cart with 3 tiers
We have this for our art supplies and love it. We can roll it out of the office and into another room if we are working someplace else. Or you can put supplies in organizers inside of this cart so you can easily grab a container out.
Expanding file folder
Great for several uses but perhaps a middle schooler who needs an organizational system or an elementary student who can sort each class by a color. Includes 12 individual pockets.
These vertical bins can store books, notebooks, binders, papers and more to stay organized.
Storage for supplies
If space is an issue, this is the smallest version and allows a child to carry it from room to room.
Storage for supplies
Much larger version than the above mentioned one. Stick the magnetic storage bins and magnetic storage pockets on whiteboards and refrigerators to hold additional supplies. Includes 12” circular tray with 8 containers, 4 magnetic storage bins, 4 magnetic storage pockets, write & wipe labels.
Both portable and adjustable, this was great for us last year with distance learning, allowing our kids to move from room to room that may not have had a desk for them to work at. A device sits on it nicely and you can also do paper/pencil work on the hard surface.
Never lose the headphones again!
White board and cork board
I am a visual person and need this to keep notes on or important deadlines and ideas. Magnetic surface of the erasable white board part is easy for writing, drawing and erasing. Natural cork surface of the cork tack board part is great for pinning notes, messages, pictures, memos, calendars, menus and more.
