Like many families, our children are learning at home this school year – even our high schooler.
I’m thrilled to have her home with me again, but I’m also concerned about keeping her safe and focused on her schoolwork.
Have you been feeling the same way about your family this year?
Trust me, I get it.
We need to keep our kids healthy but we also need them to pay attention in class and keep up with their schoolwork as well as possible.
Since I’ve been working from home for years, I know it’s important to have a dedicated workspace. The same is true for our kids who are learning at home.
But, with four children in the family, we don’t have a lot of extra space in our home.
And, since our daughter needs to use materials provided by the school district, I was concerned about keeping the home free of any germs that might come in.
So I’m sharing a few tips to help you set up a simple and safe DIY distance learning schoolwork station this year! I hope these ideas help you make the most of your learning space for your kids too!
How to Set Up A Simple and Safe Distance Learning Station
When the school district announced all students would be learning virtually this year, my first concern was helping our sophomore adjust to taking her high school courses online.
Then I found out she would need to use a district-issued laptop, along with district-issued materials. Which is when I started to worry about picking up harmful germs too.
So I was immensely relieved to get my hands on Arm and Hammer™ Essentials™ Disinfecting Wipes.
These disinfecting wipes are available in two different scents: Lemon Orchard and Renewing Rain. And they’re ready to go right out of the package.
The Arm and Hammer™ Disinfecting Wipes are thick, cushiony wipes that you can use on almost every hard surface in your house.
You can even use them to wipe down electronics, as long as you squeeze the excess moisture out first.
No more worries about that germy school laptop!
Even better, Arm and Hammer™ Essentials™ Disinfecting Wipes are 99.9% effective at killing viruses and bacteria, including human Coronavirus, MRSA, Strep, E.Coli, and Salmonella. And they manage to work that well cleaning without harsh chemicals.
Which was an enormous relief to me as a mom.
We found a simple student desk that would fit in our daughter’s room and I wiped the entire thing down with Arm and Hammer™ Disinfecting Wipes.
I also wiped down the district materials and the laptop. Then it was time to add a few decorating touches.
We printed a poster with an encouraging scripture for the wall and added a cute corkboard. She keeps thoughtful cards from her friends on it, along with her school year calendar.
Hopefully, those little spots of positivity will keep her going on school days that don’t go so well.
And we’re ready to go for the school year!
If you decide to set up a distance learning station in your home, I’d love to hear how it goes!
