Home Learning Space Ideas
 

Here are some great ideas on how to create a wonderful work space for your child for completing school work from home.  Here are three simple ways you can support your child’s learning at home by creating an environment conducive to minimizing distractions and maximizing learning:


  1. Create a Clean and Dedicated Learning Space - While your dedicated space for learning can be anywhere in your house - dining room table, kitchen counter, folding table in the living room - as long as it is clean and decluttered.  It is also important that this space is not in the child’s bedroom, as that is typically not clean or decluttered, and should remain a space of relaxation. 

  1. Specified Use of Tech - Since we will be heavily reliant on technology to keep us connected throughout this time, it is still important to set time limits and stated objectives for tech time and balancing that access with free technology play time.

  1. The Great Outdoors - Even though we are practicing social distancing right now, your back yard, or trampoline, or green space, might offer a great venue for learning. It could be simply reading under a tree or actually conducting outdoor science experiments.

The most important thing is that you create a dedicated space for your child to learn from home, and provide clear schedules and guidance to support distant learning. See below for some ideas on how to set a learn-from-home schedule for your family.
