Closing Out Your School Year – Day 3

Getting Organized:
In your Home and Homeschool 

Dear Friends,
How are you doing today? Update me at with your progress this week. Are you getting rid of clutter and getting your school area organized?
Do your children have a specific place for their school materials? Today, I want you to work with them on rounding up books and materials that are in different places around your house.
If you already your homeschool materials in one place, you can just start going through them and deciding what you need for next year and what you can put away or give away.
By designating a specific place for your children’s school books, you are setting them up for a successful school year. You can train them on where to put their books each day as they finish their work. This will help greatly in keeping up with school books.
I know children have a tendency to “lose” books when they do not like a subject. (smile)
Today, I used two 15 minute sessions to set up my teacher resource shelf. This will make it easier for me to pull out teacher manuals and answer keys.
When you declutter, keep it short and sweet. Set the timer for 15 minutes and STOP when it goes off. You can always go back later to work in that area some more.
At the end of this week, our school year will be over. Testing will be done. My school cabinet will be decluttered. We will be ready for our summer break.
Here is the link to today’s video:
Your Zone Mission today is to check your bathroom supplies. Declutter in the kids’ rooms or another area in your home.
Your Home Blessing for today is to wipe windows and mirrors.
My menu plan for Wednesday is soup and sandwiches.
Have a blessed day!
