Getting Ready for School: Organizing Homework Papers

One of my foster children came up with a wonderful idea: a colorful plastic expandable file she got at Walmart. It's only about 2 inches thick and has several compartments. She has labeled each section for each of her classes.

In each class she places homework papers and other important papers in the appropriate file. When she does her homework or needs to turn in a field trip slip, it goes back in the proper file. This keeps all important papers and homework neatly filed and easily found, keeps her bookbag from having massive quantities of papers crunched everywhere, plus it reduces the number of items that get lost. She cleans her file out every week or so to get rid of items no longer needed.

An inexpensive and simple way to organize your organizationally-challenged child!
