Home-schooling is a whole new ball game!
If like me, you find yourself Working from Home due to COVID-19 and home schooling at the same time then let’s just say this requires a new found balance and patience! To say that home life can become chaotic and stressful would be a supreme understatement, and one that we can definitely relate to!
Starting the week off questioning the merit of continuing these schooling practices with my 2 years old and soon to be 5 years old, I sat down at the kitchen table with an iPad and MS Teams to dig deeper into the content and I was pleasantly blown away; it was incredible! So superb in fact I figured, I too would benefit from this learning at the same time!
So there, in lies the inspiration for this BLOG: Work Space for Kids
Most people work better given a great place to get organised, enjoy good lighting and have their supplies close at hand, so why should children react any differently? No doubt many of us are anxious about home schooling our children as it may be a journey into the unknown but we can get them started on the right foot with a welcoming place to hit the books.
While not everyone has the luxury of a dedicated home office, it is still possible to create an attractive and organised study zone. Check out these two images below. Bedroom set ups!
If you have the space, you might consider a dedicated homework station – as furnishing your child with necessary supplies will minimise distractions and foster a quiet space to study.
If you have to accommodate more than one child, you could set up co-shared workstations against a wall.
However, for space constraints and budget 🤑 this below is one of my favourites.
