ATTENTION MOMS: START FILING YOUR CHILD’S SCHOOL WORK!

Are you one of those Mom’s that can’t part with anything your little genius creates or learns??? I’ll be the first to admit it…I am! Over the past few months I have been letting Cruz’s school papers pile up so high on his desk that he can’t even use it anymore! ๐Ÿ˜– It’s literally making me crazy! Something had to be done, and quickly!

With every organizing project, comes mini-organizing projects within the BIG project. So here’s the first step to tackling this sea of school work….SPANISH CLASS LESSONS! These are papers I want to keep. The goal is for Cruz to be able to refer back to the Spanish words he’s learned & NOT FORGET EVERYTHING!

I started a filing system where we can keep them all in one folder (out of the way) & he can refer to it when wants. So when I open his backpack & out comes a Spanish sheet, I immediately punch holes & add it to his Spanish folder. No more piles laying around the kitchen anymore! Also, I started letting Cruz punch the holes & filing it under the correct tab – he thinks it’s fun! I’m training him to “be organized” without him even knowing it. Yes, I’m sneaky like that. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let’s take a look at our new system…
