Where are your kids taking their fall classes? Remotely or in their school building?
Many parents have a dedicated home office set-up, but how many of us have a dedicated remote learning zone at home for our children?
Having an appealing and well-organized “school” & study zone at home can help your student to focus, stay organized and establish a better work-from-home attitude and schedule. Here are some clever and idea generating solutions.
Family Friendly Workstation:
Have a dedicated work area for parents?
Add a desk and everyone can be there to do their own work and help each other!
Sometimes we have to share computers and almost always need to share the printer.
Setting up a long desk enables everyone to do their own work and have access to sharing the computer/printer. Set up a section to keep school supplies on hand and accessible to all.
Hallway/Nook Remote learning Station:
You’d be surprised at the places you can use to create functional and pleasing spaces to work.
A shelf in a hallway with file cabinets as a base; a tucked away corner; a slim counter in the family room or underused section in the kitchen dining room. Think about the spaces in your home or apartment that can be adapted.
Closet Transformation or a stair landing:
We almost never have enough closet space for clothing, but sometimes where there’s a will there’s a way! How about the landing on the second floor of your home? What about that awkward space at the end of a hallway? Lofting a bed and utilizing the space underneath, is similar to how college students do it in their dorm rooms.
