Well, it seems most of us have been thrown into homeschooling whether we like it or not. Remote learning may now be the norm. I may be a stay at home mom, but homeschooling is just not in my bag of tricks. We chose the remote learning option our school district offered. We will be remote learning at home for at least the first 9 weeks of school. A lot of school districts will be doing the same, or offering part time in school and part time at home to divide up the children and have less kids in the classrooms.
Last spring when we started remote learning we just made do with the dining room table as our learning space. Since it seems this may last a lot longer, we decided to make a dedicated space in our basement for the kids.
I thought I would share how we made our fairly inexpensive set up. I’ll list where I got everything, and also some links to Amazon for comparable items.
We are setting up in the back corner of our basement. Lots of light, enough outlets, and a space for myself to be close to help them.
We had one of the smaller tables already and found that it was a great kid sized workspace. We were able to find more 4ft adjustable tables at Walmart.
The original one we had, we did get on Amazon:
The colorful bins and organizers I found at Dollar Tree. They have a huge assortment of back to school supplies now!
Everyone also needed a new pair of headphones. I had one pair from last year that worked pretty well, and added 3 more. All were bought on Amazon:
You've Got This!
There are many things to consider when setting up a remote learning workspace, but it doesn’t have to be complicated. I hope I’ve helped you find some inexpensive alternatives for your remote learning needs.
