Tips for Learning at Home
Set Up a Learning Space
Setting up a designated learning area can be done in a few cheap and easy steps and can be set up on any surface in your home. A simple tri-fold board helps to give your child some privacy while learning and also decrease the amount of visual distractions that are in their learning space.
A pencil case helps to keep any writing materials in close reach. A calendar can be used to keep track of important dates, schedule for virtual clas meetings and due dates for assignments. A pocket sleeve/page protector or a pocket folder can help keep important papers and documents organized.
Displayed in these pictures is also a book light to help keep the area well lit!
