Week two of first grade brought homework. And lot’s of it! Bunbun has 10 spelling words, reading homework and a cute little about me poster project to complete. Last week, I purchased a new desk for myself and gave her my old one. I set her up with a little writing/art station using a bin I had purchased a while back. I took advantage of the back to school Savings at Publix and stocked up on some crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks and scissors as well. I added scrap paper to another compartment and voila! Bunbun loves her new little set-up and it allows her to be creative with no restrictions on art mediums.
With the long school days and all the homework this week, I realized that Bunbun needed to be re-charged a bit. Especially after school so she can keep her energy up for homework time. At my age, I can barely keep up with all this school stuff. I have no idea how I did it as a kid. I wish I had half of that energy back! I thought about making a surprise snack station for Bunbun last night so I ran to Publix after drop-off this morning and picked up some snacks to get started. I got some great Savings at Publix, made a few printables and put everything together, just in time for the day’s end.

Bunbun was over the moon when she saw her snack station! She loved having the freedom to choose her own snack and we got started on homework right away. I think I will change the theme each grading period, but for now…I am loving our superhero theme!
I intend on keeping the snack station stocked daily and allowing Bunbun to to choose anything she’d like throughout the afternoon without having to ask permission. I may even sneak in some fruits and veggies from time to time.
