How to Put Together a Homework Station

It’s amazing how times have changed. When I was my children’s age, we didn’t have a computer in our home and the computers we used in our elementary school were very different than the laptops that my children use now.
My children use our home computer for a variety of uses and as they are getting older and using it more, my husband often contends for his time on the computer as well. My husband is a long time outdoorsman and loves to use the computer to upload his trail cam pictures, make videos for YouTube and watch videos to research for the upcoming seasons.
I had been researching a few different laptop options to surprise my husband with and when I found the HP Camo Special Edition Notebook 15-bn070wm I knew this was the one! Clearly inspired by the outdoors, the official Realtree Xtra® camouflage pattern is perfect for any outdoor enthusiast!
With plenty of storage and the most up to date Intel® processor, the HP Camo Special Edition Notebook offers dependable performance, allowing multitasking and more storage! Plus, check out the vibrant display of the crisp HD screen your photos, videos and web pages can be displayed on.
The Realtree Xtra® camo pattern allows you to tackle all your daily tasks with an affordable camouflage-patterned laptop designed to show your passion for the outdoors!
I picked up the HP Camo Special Edition Notebook 15-bn070wm at Walmart.
While I was at Walmart, I also picked up supplies to create a homework station for the kids. In the past, we did homework at the kitchen table and I often found that not having their own space was a problem for them. It was distracting and they didn’t have what they needed.
Here’s what we keep in our homework station:
- Extra paper for practicing math problems and writing. My children are perfectionists and they don’t like erasing their homework problems over and over again.
- Highlighters. Last year, when my son was going through occupational therapy, his therapist recommended highlighting the lines on his paper to help him stay on the lines.
- Extra pencils, glue, crayons and safety scissors. When my son started kindergarten no one told me to buy extra school supplies for our home for homework assignments. Oops! So now, I always have them ready.
- A chalkboard or a white board to write our “words to know” (spelling words) on. This was another tip my son’s occupational therapist told me about. It helps the kids keep their place better on their paper.
- A pen to sign papers with.
- A book for our 15 minutes of reading everyday.
- Stickers to keep the kids motivated and rewarded!
