How to set up a learning area in your home

Children work best with routine and structure.

Having a dedicated learning area in your home will help your child focus and be present in their learning. 

Now is the perfect time to implement a strong , structured , home learning system for your child.

This is how you can do it!

  1. Identify a spot in your home that can be dedicated to learning. This could be a spare room or even just a seat at the dining or kitchen table. Ensure that the television cannot easily be seen from this spot. 
  2. Equip the space with everything your child might need. Use empty sauce jars or cans as stationery holders and a basket or box for paper and books. (If the learning area in your home is at a dinning or kitchen table , make sure all your child’s stationery, books and paper can be neatly and quickly packed into a caddy or basket and put away when study time is over).
  3. Technology is a huge part of learning today. A plug point should be close by to charge or power the screen your child uses (this could be a laptop , iPad , tablet or desktop).
  4. Make sure you have all the online learning resources your child regularly uses bookmarked on their device.
  5. Take time to plan your child’s month. Print a calendar populated with all their activities for the month and print a weekly schedule with what they should focus on each day (chores, subjects matter, physical or artistic actives etc).
  6. Make their time table / calendar visible. If the learning area is in a bigger space , this can be displayed on the wall , pinned to a board or written on a white board. If you have a smaller space , display it in a flip-file for easy reference.
  7. Set rules for the space.This should be done in collaboration with your child and should be displayed. Enforce strict consequences if rules are broken and make sure the consequences are understood. Rules should be set for both you and your child to help set the example.

And it’s as easy as that :)

Thank you for stopping by. I hope this has helped you help your child in a meaningful way.
