Today we’ll be sharing a few tips on how to create the perfect classroom at home. Parents overall have mixed feelings about virtual learning. Working from home and online learning is a significant adjustment that many people have had to adjust to during this pandemic. Just as you can create a visually-appealing home office and enhance productivity, you can do the same for your child’s learning environment. Because children are currently missing out on the classroom experience, recreating this setting at home may be a positive experience. We provide affordable office furniture conducive to an educational environment. Here are some home classroom tips.
Natural Light is Excellent for a Home Classroom
It matters that both children and adults have exposure to natural light. Remember this tip as it relates to working from home as well. Poor lighting can cause strain on the eyes, especially if you’re staring at a computer screen all day. We recommend setting up your child’s learning area where a lot of natural light comes in, and where you can supervise them. But we’ll discuss more on supervision later in this blog.
Ensure That Your Child is Sitting Comfortably
While a kitchen island may serve as an ideal space for you to get work done, the same may not apply to small children. Depending on how short your child is, sitting at a very high chair may not be comfortable or accommodating. At Mark Downs, we offer ergonomic educational furniture made for small children and children of all heights. The chairs and tables that we offer also come in fun colors, which we’re sure your children will appreciate.
Create a Less Distracting Classroom
Now, here is the part that we discuss supervision. Even if your child is high-school-aged, it still benefits them to work in a communal area of the house. Online learning means that children have to have access to the Internet. If your child is learning online and needs to use the Internet for research purposes, getting work done is less distracting with laptops or computer stations in the kitchen or dining room.
Using a study or additional bedroom as an office space helps as well. The point is that it’s hard to be productive when not properly sitting down at a desk or table. Kids become easily distracted by games, YouTube, TikTok, or basically anything that isn’t actual classwork. A learning environment in a communal area allows you to keep your eyes on your children.
