While many kids are headed back to in-school learning this fall, we know that a lot of families are gearing up for another semester of Zoom classes or embracing the homeschool life. If you are schooling at home this fall, this post is for you!
We are sharing a few favourite items to create a fun at-home learning space that will have both you and your kids feel a bit more ready to return to the virtual classroom. Creating a more permanent learning zone in your home will also help kids adjust between their school day and home life. Even though it isn’t like getting on the bus and going to school, a school zone may be just what you need to add some much-needed structure to your homeschooling experience!
