The best way to help your kids stay on top of their homework is to sort the contents of their backpack by subject. This will help them know where everything is, and make it easier for them to locate their pens, pencils and other supplies. They can use their backpack’s compartments to do this – for example, some bags have a primary and secondary pouch, or even a front pocket, so they could put in their school books and binders into the main one, their tech gear, notebooks and utensils into the other and any extras like hand sanitizer and breath mints into the front pockets.

Then, they can pack their bag knowing that they are bringing the right items for the tasks ahead of them. If they are going to be doing lots of homework, they can keep a folder in their backpack for all the papers that need to go back at the end of the school day, so they won’t lose any work.
