Set Up a Virtual School Station at Home

Author Your Holiday Inspiration Guru | August 19, 2020

Spending more time at home with the kids this school year? Whether your student is starting school virtually or just needs a place to work on homework after school, a positive workplace is just what they need. Create a distraction-free learning environment to prepare your child for an upcoming school year full of academic success. We're here to help provide them with the tools and supplies they need to thrive. 

Need help getting started? Check out our tips to create the perfect learning space. 

  • Find the right location 

You don't need a ton of extra room around the house to make a great virtual learning space for your kids. If you don't have a designated office area, your kitchen or dining room table will serve as the perfect school desk. Be sure to keep the TVs off and limit distractions until they've completed their school work. 

  • Get school supplies 

Find everything your child may need in the back to school section at your local United Supermarkets! We have a great selection of school supplies and other helpful goodies. To stay organized, designate a particular place in the house for their supplies, such as a spare shelf or cabinet, to hold all of their school day essentials.

  • Switch it up! 

Reenergize their growing minds with a little change of scenery throughout the day. Try starting their mornings in one workspace, and finishing the afternoon in another to break up the day. Your options will depend on the available locations in your home, so be creative when thinking of potential study spots. Head out to the back patio or just move to a different place at the table for a good change.

  • Be patient 

Remember that this is a big change for everyone. Parents, teachers, and students are all still adjusting to these changes, so don't feel bad if not everything is perfect. We’re all doing the best we can, so do your best to stay patient and positive.
