Homeschooling has become more popular.
After school closures this year, many parents have been pleasantly surprised by homeschooling and have chosen to keep it up now schools have reopened.
Whether you want more control over what your children learn or want more flexibility, creating a classroom space is important to help with concentration and learning.
Use A Defined Space
If you can, try and use set aside a room only for school, so you can separate school and home time.
An architect can advise you on building an extension or outside room for a schoolroom.
If you don’t have a whole room to set aside or room to extend, then use a room that is usually quiet and undisturbed.
Using a space only for schoolwork can help to improve concentration.

School supplies like workbooks, craft supplies, and textbooks need a lot of storage space, and can soon feel as though they are taking over the whole house.
Try to cut back on some of the clutter with clever storage in the schoolroom and the children’s bedrooms.
You can also reduce clutter by going digital. There are a lot of curriculums online that you can use.
The kids can work on tablets, rather than on paper. You can store test scores, portfolios, and other records on the cloud.
Look for a YouTube channel with helpful videos that teach skills, from cooking to languages.
Using online educational resources is also a lot more flexible than working on paper can be.
You can still teach your children anywhere with an internet connection, so you can take the classroom with you if you want to travel.
Keep The Classroom Tidy
Even a classroom that you keep very well organized can look like a disaster has struck it very quickly, especially after a day of lessons.
Make sure your classroom is well organized, with plenty of storage options.
Everything should have a home to be returned to.
Add shelving, cubbies, rack, door hangers, and storage boxes to store everything that you need.
Use stackable bins to add vertical storage and clear your floor space, especially if your study space is small.
You can also use these bins to separate things by subject so you can easily find what you need for every lesson.
Make sure the children put everything away after they have finished using it.
After lessons are finished, you can reset the classroom together, so it’s ready for you to start again in the morning.
Make tidying up part of the school day.
Nobody, you included, can finish school for the day until the classroom has been put straight.
A proper, well-defined classroom space can be a very useful way to make homeschooling more efficient and effective.
Keep the space properly organized and as separate from the rest of your home as you can.
Teach your children to respect their study space, and they’ll be better able to focus on their studies without distraction and make good progress.
