Many schools are working to provide laptops for student who need them. If yours doesn’t, or you prefer you child has his or her own, we’ve found this highly rated and cost effective option:



To pair with a laptop, your child needs these noise-cancelling headphones so that she can concentrate on her work while others are working from home or younger siblings are at play. We like that these have a built in microphone and fit well on little heads:



Kids aren’t geared to sit in place all day, so this lap desk allows them to settle down anywhere. Also, if, like most of us, you don’t have enough room for a designated desk space for multiple kids, this is an easier way to make a portable work space:

Another option — and one that can double as an organizer, are these clip boards. We like that different colors could designate different children or different subjects or even different days of the week!

Clip Boards


If you’re looking to make a more designated learning space, this file organized might be right up your alley! It can hang on the wall (taking up less space), and again you could assign each slot to a child, a subject, and/or day of the week. We think this will work well with the clip boards too.

Many of us don’t have pencil sharpeners at home, and there will be all KINDS of pencil sharpening needed. A favorite is this sharpener with adjustable sizing:

Meg considers herself to be a certified chaos coordinator. A mom of three, she's a long-time resident of Nashville and can't imagine a better city for raising her family. Meg lives with ADHD, a renovation and project obsessed husband, a teenage driver, a lego-obsessed kiddo, and a budding artist. Her nerves — and the bottoms of her feet — are finished with the day by 2pm. Meanwhile, every surface is covered with renovation dust and paint — or flour from her escape baking. In her spare time (irony), you can find her running (hi, stress relief!) and working on freelance editing and writing gigs.
