Create A Comfortable Workstation

If you make the choice to homeschool can be challenging, however helping with homework each night can feel like you’re homeschooling even when you don’t call it homeschool. 
After raising 7 children as a single parent homework felt like a death sentence some nights! My kids’ favorite line right at bedtime was, “ I forgot I have homework!”. 
I was a homeroom mom at my kid’s school one or two days a week and I noticed one of the teachers had a special table where kids could go to catch up on homework that maybe couldn’t get done at home because of unknown circumstances with the students' home lives. 
After I saw the great workspace at the school I decided I needed a designated workstation space at home for my kids to feel comfortable and a reminder to get homework done before 9:00 p.m. 
Doing homework and having a social life can be challenging for families to get everything done in a day, however having a space that’s comfortable to study can make a huge difference. 

School Desk and Workstation 

The space you choose to study or learn can be so important. Making a space where your child or student feels comfortable and has the items around them to help them learn can be vital to their wellbeing. Have you ever sat in an uncomfortable chair and all you could think about was moving somewhere different? It is important to feel comfortable especially when we need to learn something new. There are all different kinds of school desks and chairs, however, you need to find the one that works best for you, your home life, and the spaces you’re living in.
If feeling comfortable is a prerequisite to learning then a student desk or school desk is very important. Make sure you shop around and find the right one for you and your homeschooler or for the very important homework station and school desks for home.

Creating A Homeschool Program

Whatever homeschool program you decide to implement you will need to find the one that fits your student’s needs. Consider an online school program to help you organize your curriculum. Even though I’ve never been homeschooled full time I feel I’ve had enough homework over the years with 7 kids to consider myself a homeschool mom. LOL! Homeschooling is more than books; it's about life skills and learning to get along with others in everyday life, which I’ve taught my kids. 
My sister homeschooled all 10 of her children and turned her home into a school room where she planned her homeschool curriculum with other mothers in her neighborhood and each took a subject they were good at and taught their kids (students) about those subjects making sure they were teaching important skills to pass state tests and keeping up with their grade.  One thing I noticed in her home is that the students always had a comfortable desk to study and do their schoolwork and turned her home into an actual school room. 
Creating a program that worked for everyone involved in their schoolroom helped each family not to get overwhelmed and allowed moms to have other jobs outside the home. 
I have admired my sister's work ethic over the years and it seems that each one of her children is wonderfully human and has very close relationships with each of their siblings. I often wonder if the strong bond they have is because of homeschooling.

Importance Of A Good Workstation

Having a designated workstation is important because if you are in the wrong position to learn you might doze off or get sleepy. If you are sitting upright while learning it allows your blood to flow through your body more freely allowing oxygen to get to your brain making learning much easier. 
There are studies that show that the workspace you choose has a great impact on how productive your work will be. 
This is from google research
Providing comfortable workstations in the office helps promote health. It reduces the risk of eyestrains, headaches, neck pain, back pain, and even nerve pains, such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Repetitive movements can cause these injuries, and seating for long periods can worsen the problem.
For more information search Google
“how important is it to have a great workstation” 
The articles are endless with important information about comfortable workstations.
Remember to take breaks every two hours or more if needed. Have a snack station for kids to grab a quick healthy snack and always have water for them to drink. If you want to learn more about how important it is to drink plenty of water this would be a great lesson for homeschoolers. 

School Desk Ideas

Having an excellent desk and a designated space for homeschoolers can make them feel comfortable and important. It shows that you value education and the important work they will do at their classroom desk. There are so many school desks to choose from it’s hard to know what will work for your students.
 Before choosing a school desk, you need to consider these things.
  • Do you need a space-saving desk
  • Do you want a folding desk
  • Do you want a desk you can move outside 
  • What function do you need in a classroom desk
  • Does it cleanup easy
  • What size of desk works for you
  • Desk that converts into a chair 
  • Desk that has a chair attached
