With the onset of the new school year to parents of students gets the task to equip the workplace of the child.
Well-lit Desk, comfortable chair, cupboard for books and stationery — that’s how we usually present the room of the student, but there are many nuances that must be considered when preparing the child’s room for the first academic year. Use designer tips to make the learning process as comfortable as possible. We asked the designer Eugene Topilskiy, besides the mother of 4 children, rules of interior design children’s rooms.
1. Drastic changes
First and foremost, parents are concerned whether to radically change the situation in the baby’s room. It should be remembered that the new status of the student and related changes in life are stressful, so he needed a familiar favorite place, where he could feel safe and easy to take and comprehend new information.
For this reason, do not dramatically change the atmosphere in the room first-grader. Best of all, if the changes are gradual and consistent with the child.
2. School and leisure
A second important question is, what to write in the baby’s room, which in addition to the game, now becomes an office. If we are talking about the computer, then the decision is up to the parents, because the first-graders for school assignments rarely require a computer.
As for favorite things and toys, it is best to leave them. Without his usual entourage, the student may be nervous, which will affect performance. Zoning techniques will help to divide the room into training and playing the part. This will help him to realize the distinction between study and rest.
3. The scoreboard
In the modern school system prevalent incentives for various achievements, such as certificates and diplomas. The placement of such awards is an individual question.
Parents should observe the child’s reaction — whether he was proud of its victories, will they become more motivated, or he is afraid to lose the next time. In this case, hung on the walls letters will only confuse the student, and the best solution is to store them in a special folder. Most importantly in this situation, listen to the sensations of the baby and not to pander to the selfishness of parents who, no doubt, want to be proud of the achievements of the child.
What to do if it is not possible to equip a personal workspace for the student?
In this case, it is best to baby-proof the common room table with shelves and drawers for storing school supplies, mobile storage system, for example, a convenient bedside table on wheels, where will be stored the only things a first grader.
There he will be able to easily find what they need. Also, if it is not possible to distinguish the student’s own Desk, then the room should be well-lit corner of the common table at any time be in its possession.
