Supply the space with all the materials your child will need.

Think about all the things your child will need that should be in easy reach of their study space to avoid any interruptions in their workflow. Even if you have a multi-functional space—like a kitchen table—as your designated study space, you can put your materials in a portable storage bin or rolling cart so it’s within easy access. Depending on the grade, here are some common supplies they may need:

  • Calculator
  • Construction paper
  • Glue sticks, bottle of glue, scissors
  • Index cards
  • Pens, pencils, highlighters, pencil sharpener, eraser
  • Poster board
  • Printer paper and print cartridges
  • Ruler
  • Storage box
  • Wall calendar
  • Water-based markers
  • Watercolor paints
