For more than two months now, we have been holding our homeschool in another setup. Because after almost 4 years of homeschooling in a cramped corner, God has provided a way for us to level up and upgrade our homeschooling nook. Although the construction is still in progress, we are very grateful for a better learning environment for our homeschooler.
As per our Home Educator Manual, we are encouraged to select a room where the student can work with minimal distractions. Anything that helps the student’s learning environment is an educational asset. Some other considerations are:
- Whatever place you choose, make sure that it has good lighting.
- Provide a place in the room for small bulletin board where the student’s Goal Chart and Student Progress Chart can be displayed. Preferably fronting where the student works.
- If you have more than one student, each should have an individual work space.
- You need to provide a separate area where the student scores and tests. This could be a sewing machine table, a corner on the kitchen counter, a game table, etc. If available, choose an area that allows the student to stand upright. Whatever you choose, use it consistently.
