Is your house beginning to look like a schoolhouse? What with the litter of books, colored pencils, crayons, paper, etc. lying everywhere? Not even kitchen is spared, making the whole house look like it was ravaged by hurricane. What to do? Here are some handy and effective hints.

1.   Shelves, boxes and bins. Organize flashcards in shoeboxes (the clear, plastic ones are wonderful) and cut up subject dividers to keep them separate. Keep large containers with      lids for crayons, pencils, stickers and other items. This allow for quick cleanup. A box or milkcrate for each child makes transporting to another room or location handy and keep everything together.

2.   Keep a “return” bin handy for books and videos that need to be returned to the library or school.

3.   Consider putting up a large bulletin board for papers and clearing the board at the beginning of each month. Keeping a bulletin board in each child’s room also gives them a place to hang the real “masterpieces.”

4.   Find a closet or set of cupboards that you can devote entirely to school materials. Lots of shelves are great for organizing and stacking. Putting all your homeschool materials away at the end of the week forces you to check on the piles that easily build up.

5.   Keep on top of housework by assigning chores. Spending a half hour making beds and picking up before school makes a huge difference. Even the youngest can empty a small garbage can or feed a pet.

6.   Make children clean up in small spurts during the day so you don’t end up with an enormous mess at the end of the day. Allow kids a break between lessons but only after they clean something up. (Sure it’s a bribe but it works!)

7.   Buy a 10” x 12” whiteboard for each child to keep the paper buildup down. Kids love them and they are great to work math problems on or practice a new cursive letter.

8.   Invest in an inexpensive three-hole punch that makes any paper fit into a binder. Make it your child’s responsibility to get papers into his notebook.
