Never underestimate the power of proper lighting! Make sure your child can see what they’re studying well by installing a desk lamp or choosing a spot that has ample natural light (for daytime studying). Create a space with your child so it reflects things that they find helpful or pleasant, like a special wall calendar or their favorite desk accessories or motifs. Adding a corkboard that they can maintain with their favorite photos, as well as important school information, is an excellent way for them to take ownership of the space. You’ll want to make sure the surface of the desk or table that they are using has enough space for all the work they need to sort so nothing gets lost in a messy pile.
