Homeschooling is new for most people, and it’s going to take some growing pains before everything flows seamlessly. Some parents want their kids to be comfortable in plush computer chairs, just like the grown ups. Others want their kids to continue to feel as if they’re in a real classroom, rather than being at home. The mindset is that when you do this, it might make it easier for your kids to adjust to returning to their normal classroom desks. If that’s the case in your house, consider getting one of these traditional school desks with the little built-in cubby storage. Kids will find this to be a lot of fun. It’s also smaller, cheaper, and easier to store in your home compared to larger desks. And if you have multiple children attending elementary school at one time, this might actually be the best solution to giving everyone a desk.
Some people are also trying to create a “learning pod” with cousins or other kids around the neighborhood. They make an agreement to only see people inside of their exclusive bubble. If this is the case in your house, you really might need several of these smaller desks in order to simulate the classroom experience. This is easier to accomplish if you have a room set aside to create a makeshift classroom area. Many parents will also purchase a dry erase board or chalkboard too, to make a small makeshift classroom in their garage, dining room, or living room.
