What You’ll Need to Create a School-like Environment 

Setting the scene for your child’s home learning is an easily overlooked but essential task that could make the difference between them excelling or falling behind. It may be tempting to simply sit them down at the kitchen table and expect them to do their work, but they will need their own space to stay focused. If they feel comfortable and enjoy the space, they will be excited to get up and learn every day. Check out these essential items you’ll need to create a school-like environment to help make the experience comfortable, interactive, and fun!

Desk 

    Ensuring that your child has a good desk is essential if you are trying to recreate the classroom environment. Depending on the age and size of your child, there are many types of desks that can suit their needs and styles. If you live in an apartment, have several children sharing space, or just have limited square-footage, getting a desk that attaches to a bunk bed is a great option.

    There are also tons of great colors and styles to choose from. Let your child help in the decision-making process to get them excited about their new school situation. 

    Chair 

      The chair that your child uses will make or break their homeschooling experience. Get them a comfortable, adult chair that they can grow into as they get older. A regular-sized chair will help in practicing good posture and promote active listening. A good chair will also make sure they have the stamina to sit all day to do their schoolwork.

      Bookshelf 

        Whether your child is an avid reader or not, they need a stocked bookshelf. Not only does a bookshelf encourage them to read, but it also helps with organizational skills. Teach them to organize their books alphabetically by author or by subject!

        Bed + Mattress

          Your child probably already has a bed, but now might be the time to take the plunge and buy them a new bedroom set. At Bel Furniture, we have affordable, 3-piece beds and mattresses that will give your child the bedroom of their dreams and a good night's sleep to keep up with their studies. Many of our child beds also function as multi-purpose storage organization to help keep their room clean and tidy.

            If you have the extra space in your home or need to furnish an entire room, buy a complete set of children’s furniture and help to create a designated space for your children to call their own.

              Dry Erase or Chalkboard

                If your child is struggling with the new schooling situation, it may be helpful to get them a chalkboard or dry erase board to help replicate their normal school environment. This is a functional and interactive way for them to learn and saves paper too. If you are a working parent and are unable to supervise your child as they do their schoolwork, you can leave written instructions for them to follow on the board and have them leave it up so that you can check their work when you have the time. 

                Homeschooling in a Small Space

                You don’t need to have a sprawling home in order to provide your child with a good space to learn. The two most important rules to enforce is to keep a designated area for school work and keep strict deadlines to maintain productivity. If you have a smaller space, storage and organization are also key. Encourage your child to keep their supplies on a bookshelf or in their desk so that schoolwork is out of sight when it’s time for fun!
