Sorry it has been a while since I have posted, the school holidays, Christmas and back to school were rather chaotic here.
Recently I used a Excel Spreadsheet to map out the boys and my days. I put everything in they and I need to do and realised something I had already known but the visual helped confirm, if the boys do everything they are meant to every day then especially on the days we have Physio, Swimming & Band Practice that they don't have any free time, any down time, hence why we miss doing things that should be done on these days.
So here is my solution, a Portable Homework Station this means the child not involved in a appointment or activity can get their homework done so that when we get home there is one less thing to do.
So inside we have a lap desk, my Grade 3's homework folder, my Grade 5's homework and a pencil case.
The Grade 3's at my son's school use a A3 mesh case as their homework folder and the grade 5's use a red polypick envelope.
