learning space essentials
It's said that being a parent is the hardest job in the world. When you're also your child's teacher, you indeed face a challenge. This is where organization and planning become top priorities for success. Really Good Stuff® offers products that help with both, which you can immediately use in your child's (or children's) homeschooling environment.
Maximize Limited Teaching Space
Utilization of space is a major concern in any classroom, so our colorful, child-oriented supplies for home teaching are geared toward maximum efficiency. For book and paper organization, take a look at our Desktop Bookshelf With Cups to hold pens, pencils, markers, binder clips or any other small supplies. The Dry Erase Sleeves And Supplies Storage is another compact way to hold reusable, dry-erase sleeves, worksheets and dry-erase markers.
Use of dry erase supplies in classrooms has become the most effective way to "teach green," as it allows you and your students to do unlimited practice work without going through ream upon ream of paper. This cuts down on paper waste, unnecessary clutter and need for additional storage. The Whiteboard Stand and Whiteboard along with the Dry Erase Tray Table are two sturdy pieces that children can use time and again while learning through practice.
For you as the teacher, the Portable Magnetic Dry Erase Easel will be invaluable — your teaching chalkboard minus the chalk-dust mess.
To store books, worksheets and other learning resources, pick up our color-coded Classroom Paper Baskets, plus Book and Binder Holders. Bright colors are an easy and universal way to separate work and supplies, especially for pre-readers. For larger-volume storage, consider our sturdy, simply designed, full-sized oak Both-Way Shelf, which handily holds numerous books in all shapes and sizes.
Letting Children Be Children
Dealing with the seemingly limitless energy and varying attention spans of children is another big hurdle for teachers, whether in a homeschool setting or regular classroom. Be smart by aligning teaching time with attention levels and provide some down-time options. For this reason, our Kid's Core Wobble Chair and Floor Wobbler are wonderful for young children to "get their wiggles out" and have fun at the same time. Our free Just for Fun resources will also help with other engaging activities to let your students relax and refresh.
