How to Get Organized for Back to School

Establish after school expectations. I think most kids need a little "down time" afterschool but there are a few things that I expect when the kids first come home from school: backpacks emptied {including lunches and putting their planner/notices on the counter for me to read}, shoes and coat put away, and backpacks hung up in their designated spot. We do not have any screen time {video games or television} until after homework is completed.

Hallway. Instead of each kids picture above the hook, do a small dry erase board for reminders for each kid (mason: wear red, Brooke: needs wipes). Hang family sign a little higher and then put family pictures below
