Study Boards for Kids

I'd like to take credit for this crafty project, but NO, I did not make it.  WonderMom did.  She originally made one for her daughter (she got the idea from Family Fun Magazine).

The study board having been a success for her own daughter, she suggested that my kids might also benefit from having one of these.  They kind of cubby hole the child from distractions and have everything they need to complete their daily assignments and weekly studies (this one is missing the pencil sharpener -- it goes right next to the glue stick).

Considering I didn't get around to working on this yet, and WonderMom's dedication to fulfilling a project she finds important -- she built two of these for us!

This is one of the reasons I totally *heart* her.  The kids will be so excited when they get home.


These study boards have been specially designed for the type of assignments the kids have.  Everything is attached to this board via velcro.   So something may be used and returned.

Inside of the green pencil case are sharpened pencils and color pencils.  (The children have a weekly paragraph to write that corresponds with a picture they must color.  Also, other assignments require coloring as well.)

The ruler is used in math.  The folder can hold extra notebook paper and study materials for the weekly test.  The cork can hold memory verses, reminders, etc.  Post-it notes to mark their place in a book or remind them to take a particular book to school the next day, etc.

Isn't this totally COOOOOL?!  Thanks WonderMom!  I can't wait for the kids to try these out today.  I'm optimistic that the cubby-study board will keep them focused on their assignment and not each other. LOL!

That's pretty cool. Funny enough I just saw Martha Stewart do something similar on "Whatever Martha" but it wasn't as cool (and was made outta cardboard -- hence why they were making fun of it).

Hope it helps the kids to focus and get the work done.

Harry, WonderMom is all about re-using and recycling and being thrifty. So, she did indeed use cardboard (one sold piece that folds nicely) rather than a presentation type fold up board.

;-) But, so far, so good. Lil'Gal is in heaven. Farmer, Jr. likes it - but still HATES homework...

I sure could have used one of those about 3 years

Nice idea. But the teen would think I lost my nut if I made that. PLUS .. would only work if the homework, book, etc actually made it HOME!!
