No Distraction Homework Station

Today’s surprise isn’t all about a no distraction homework station; it’s a part of the Peeping Moms Back to School Tour.  And I know you love the Peeping Moms!  We’ll start first with the no distraction homework station.

The older Stepson gets, and the more activities he is involved in, the more disciplined homework has to be.  In typical Army style, homework is run with military precision.  Every kid is different, and a no distraction zone works best in our home.  Sometimes, we do homework at the kitchen island, but this is the primary homework station.  It is a bare bones basic no frills homework station.

The cork board was repurposed, and repainted.  The shelf was picked up super cheap at a yard sale.  It needs to be painted at some point.  Item #572 on my honey-do list.

We keep an old school dictionary, along with workbooks on the shelf.  We also have one binder for Scouts (can’t get to Eagle without one!) and one binder for school.

The desk was my Mother’s, and the chair I think goes back to my Grandmother.  Both pieces of furniture need to be refinished some day.  Some day.  Item #573 on my honey do list.

    What a great space. I think no distractions is a good idea. I can promise you I easily get distracted any where I sit! Love the chair and the desk and the memories that go along with them.

    How sweet that you’re using your mom’s desk and grandmother’s chair. You’re a smart stepmama to set up a study space without distractions. (hee hee, firing up the abacus made me chuckle.)

      Hi Susan – Always good for a chuckle or two! The space is adjacent to the kitchen so it’s easy to provide oversight and help when needed. Great to be a Peeping Mom with you! Hugs, Holly

    I need one of those no distraction spaces for myself and the blog. Except I would have the internet and that always distracts me, lol!

      Hi Rachel – too funny – blogging in and of itself is its own distraction LOL! Thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Holly

    I love the no cluttered look of these study spaces. This is wonderful at least to start of studying. Great idea of sharing a glimpse into each other’s homes.

      Hi Judith – Half of the battle is learning what works best for your family, and proof by all of the different spaces you see. thanks for stopping by! Hugs, Holly

    I think this is a great space. My ADHD teen needs a distraction-free space. Our big thing is (predictably) electronics. He can’t seem to bear to pick up a pencil without his music playing. And once he picks up his iPod to choose the music – or to fiddle with it, then it all goes to Hell. I just realize that I have a very bare-bones iPod Nano hanging around here. Maybe we’ll try that so we can separate the music from the distraction of texts, and the temptation of the Internet and YouTube. #SITSSharefest

      Hi Adrian – When I was a kid, I did my best studying in front of the TV if you can belive it. Everyone is different and this is what seems to work best for us. Plus I’m right there cooking dinner if needed. Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing! Hugs, Holly

    My husband is a teacher, and he is constantly frustrated by students’ lack of homework skills. Thanks for ensuring that your child is doing his homework, and the ‘distraction free’ zone is awesome!

      Hi Deborah – Homework can still be a challenge, but this system does work best for our family. Thanks again for stopping by and hope to see you soon! Hugs, Holly

    I’m thinking I need a workstation like that! Mine gets me distracted all too often (or maybe it’s just me). 😛
