Create Your Best Homeschooling Space

Homeschool, virtual school, digital academy – these types of education are getting more and more frequent with the current pandemic situation. Now I am not here to bash anyone for their educational choices. In fact, I am still struggling with what I am doing with my children considering I live in a hot bed city and state. I never imagined myself having to homeschool my children – even though I am a teacher! I believe in the public education system and that I am a better mother when I have a job and breaks from my children throughout the day. But in my research, I found many of these spaces and articles to be helpful in determining if homeschooling was even feasible for us. Although I have not made a decision, I do feel like these articles will set me up for success if I choose to stay home with my children. 

Homeschool Space – As a teacher, I really understand the importance of having a clean and tidy workspace for the children to be successful for homeschool. You will need easily accessible school supplies, hardy writing space, and a sense of creative inspiration to keep the children on track. Now, we all don’t have the same amount of space to make the right homeschooling space. Here are some of my favorite sample spaces that can be used in a room or just a small corner of the house.
