Organizing a Homework Station for Back to School

Last year I posted about Organizing a Homework Station for back to school.  As you can see, we are still using the white board (check out this post to see how we use it), and I have finally made a permanent home for it in the family room.

We have a small room located in the kitchen where we end up helping Ella with her homework and reading; so why not store all of the homework supplies together in one spot?  So now we have a Homework Central Station!

I went "shopping" around the house for baskets, and I found these beautiful baskets from Michael's.  (I am an organization junkie, so I have a plethora of storage baskets, boxes, bins, etc., in the garage!)

I also found a plastic compartment organizer I bought a couple of years back from a store going out of business, they are originally from Ikea (these Rubbermaid trays are great, too!).

The top basket fits all of her math and word flashcards perfectly. I usually make up a new set of word flashcards based on the Dolch sight word list for the specific grade she is in.  Ella really hates to read, and she's not a huge fan of the flashcards either...sigh...I can only keep trying!

The plastic organizer holds a few basic items, as I am not sure yet exactly what else she will need.  This is the first year she will likely have actual homework.  I also have the white board felts and eraser stored here as well.

Underneath the plastic organizer is where I am storing her extra exercise books and such, plus stickers as she still loves it when I put a sticker in her workbooks.

So, I am not sure yet exactly what else she will need, but I'm sure I will need to add a few more things!

What about you?  Are you ready for the kids to go back to school?  Or are you going back yourself?
