Assign Dedicated Workspaces
Creating a dedicated workspace tailored to the interests and needs of your child can make for a thriving learning experience. Choose a quiet and calm area in your home away from the main hustle and bustle. Your child will be far more likely to concentrate on their studies if they have a consistent and organized workspace, just like in school.
Stock up on learning-related materials they may require, like notebooks and sketch paper, stationery, textbooks, worksheets, and any other learning aids, that promote focused learning. If your child has in-home or online tutoring, lessons can also be conducted in that same space. Ask your child how you can enhance their learning experience. Perhaps they prefer being in a room with a window so that they can get natural light, or they may want a clock nearby to keep track of the time. Regardless of the requests they make, listening to them can help you in creating an ideal environment in which they feel at ease and ready to learn.
Keep It Distraction-Free
If your home has a plethora of games, toys, digital devices, and other items that may pose obstacles to a productive learning environment, remove them from your child’s workspace, but reassure them that they will have access to them once learning time is over.
Create A Reading Space
Be it in the living room or near your child’s designated workspace, create a reading space in your home. Let them choose books to read (or have you read to them, depending on their age) over the period of several weeks and arrange them neatly in this space. Encourage your child to make time for reading every day. Incorporating reading into your child’s learning-at-home routine promotes literacy, helps them improve their reading, spelling, and writing abilities, and builds a lifelong knack for creativity and imagination.
