Finding space for your at-home classroom – In a portable storage building!
You care about your child’s education so you want to home school. You are continuously looking for the best education tools and advice. Homeschooling offers many benefits. Finding space for your at-home classroom is an all together different story.
You can use a portable building as an option for your at home classroom. In fact, many schools that are in the process of remodeling use portable buildings to house students so they are not relocated to a different school.
Homeschooling offers ultimate control of the educational process of your child.
Do you have a toddler or new baby? If so, make a space in your portable building turned classroom. Keep everything you need to make it through your busy day. Shelving or cabinetry needs to be considered. Once you get the perfect building you can have it customized in any number of ways.
You can easily house a small college refrigerator, water cooler and microwave so that you have a lunch center.
Make sure that you set the proper schedule when you are homeschooling. Look for things to do that can help both ages. Use every moment to have both kids involved without disrupting their bonding or development.
Don’t forget the ‘social’ side of school. A child gains much more from school than simply academics. Make sure that your child is involved in activities that a school offers such as sports and music. This can be achieved by meeting other home school parents and organizing extra curricular activities at the end of the school day or the weekend.
You should keep well-organized records of the work that your child is doing and the progress that he is making. You will need to be accountable for this when you report to the state. Keeping good records will ensure that you comply with state standards in case there is a dispute with the state about your homeschool arrangement.
