Desk, chair and lamp
Storage boxes, jars, and binders
Find an appropriately sized desk and chair, as well as a good lamp, and place them in a quiet spot away from the television or other distractions.
Organize supplies in storage boxes, jars, and binders, and set aside space to display artwork and awards.
Finally, consider designating a specific time of day for homework, reading, or organizing of your own; your children are more likely to concentrate on their studies if they see you engaged in similar efforts.
