Welcome to Down Home, San Luis Obispo Classical Academy’s blog! We are a classical school offering several options to make our education work for families with infants through high schoolers. Our signature hybrid program, which is part-time classroom and part-time home instruction, provides an engaging education for preschool through middle school (with full time options available). We also have a university model high school. This blog is meant to support and encourage on the home front because, in so many ways, the heart of what happens at SLO Classical Academy happens down home.

Go Clean Your Room!

How many of us will be announcing those four words sometime soon? After two weeks of holiday break, chances are quite a few of us have kid bedrooms that look something like the one above… can anyone relate? And we typically want to put our homes in some kind of order before jumping back into school routines, so many of us are planning to do some cleaning and organizing this week. We also may want to get our kids to help in the process. At the VERY least we’d like them to clean their rooms!

If bedroom cleaning has become an all-day chore filled with tears and tantrums (maybe from mom too), here’s a super practical method that might help, from How Does She? They even have a printable you can post in your child’s room on cleaning day:

How to Teach Your Child to Clean ANY Bedroom in Ten Minutes

This humorously written blog post gives simple guidelines to help break up the enormous task of cleaning a disaster area into manageable chunks. Check it out and give it a try! Even if it takes more than ten minutes, the steps will help keep kids moving forward and making progress on those messy bedrooms. 

Do you have any tips or tricks for helping kids clean and organize? We’d love to hear them! Share in the comments.
