Creative Mom Makes DIY Work Spaces For Her Kids’ Distant Learning This FallSave for later:
Depending on where you live, there’s a good chance your kids aren’t heading back to school this fall. COVID-19 has challenged us in ways we never thought possible – and that includes trying to balance children who are completing distant learning with our own jobs. If you’re one of many parents wondering, “How the heck am I going to survive homeschooling while juggling my own responsibilities this year?” one clever mom has a tip that might make things a bit easier for you.
Angelina Harper is a mom from Louisville, Kentucky, who came up with a genius idea for managing her kids’ distant learning this fall. She and her husband are both working from home, and they knew that in order for their kids to actually learn their schoolwork, they would need individual work spaces with limited distractions. And so, Angelina made three individual work spaces from foam boards that sit atop desks (and are portable)!
Check out the video below to see how she created the work spaces from start to finish:
Each child’s workspace provides them with a distraction-free zone that is entirely their own. Angelina attached a folder for schedules or worksheets, a calendar, a pencil case, and inspirational notes to the walls of each work space. There’s even a hook on each wall for hanging up headphones!
If you’re wondering how to navigate your child’s distant learning this fall, hopefully this creative hack will help bring your child (and you) some sense of normalcy. Great work, Angelina, and thanks so much for sharing!
