Teaching your kids – let alone trying to keep them happy, healthy, and entertained during a health crisis – is tough enough. Trying to teach them in the same space your family uses for playing, working, socializing, and relaxing can seem almost impossible. But due to the ongoing health crisis, many families across the country are trying to make it work: some are forming home teaching modules, others are going solo and many are still undecided on which way to go. . Since home schooling for the next school year (or at least part of it) is the new reality, make it more manageable for you and your kids with these homeschool organizing ideas. Take inspiration from parents who made it themselves to find the best ways to create class schedules, not clutter up your child’s workspace, and organize homework.

Organize assignments by week

Keep track of all of your child’s work by storing essays, tests, and illustrations in color-coded files. Involve your children by asking them to clear their desks or notebooks every week and fill out the corresponding file.


Keep everything on a cart

A rolling caddy, like these stylish metal ones, makes it easy to move all of your supplies from room to room. Plus, as soon as the weekend arrives, you can hide them in a closet until school is in session.


Give children their own baccalaureate

Since your kids may not have their own desks to store their supplies, give them a plastic bin to hold their pens, pencils, calculators, and other essentials. Label it with their name, so they don’t mix it up with their other siblings.
