The student spends a lot of time at the desk, so it is very important to properly organize the workspace of the children's room.
- Ideally, each child should have their own territory, a bright, sunny room where there is room for games and activities. To make it easier to keep clean, try not to clutter up the room with unnecessary furniture and details. It is not necessary to divide the room into study, play parts and a recreation area, psychologists believe that this will help make learning an element of the game.
- Be sure to choose furniture with your child, taking into account, first of all, his interests and hobbies, character traits and inclinations.
- Be sure to consider your child's favorite and least favorite colors. If the color is chosen correctly, it will create a feeling of harmony, comfort, and an unsuccessful color combination will cause discomfort and fatigue.
- It is better to give preference to gentle, soft tones, they soothe and do not irritate children's eyes. Bright colors look great in a nursery, but it's important not to overwhelm the space with bright colors.
- It is recommended to change the color composition from time to time children's room.

You can check if the table is suitable for your child right in the store: when landing, the edge of the table should be at chest level (so that the child can lean on the elbows), the legs should be at a right angle, and in no case should the knees do not support the table from below. Often the table is sold immediately complete with a chair, however, before buying it is still worth making sure that it is comfortable for your child to sit on it.
Correct lighting is very important, as too bright or dim light can cause fatigue and damage vision. The table should be next to the window so that the light falls on the left, and for left-handed children - on the right. If the room is sufficiently lit by daylight, it is not necessary to turn on the table lamp. At night, you can’t limit yourself to one table lamp so that the rest of the room is dark - such a contrast can cause fatigue and a decrease in visual acuity. During the child's classes in the room there should be reflected diffused light. It is best to use a combination of wall sconces or a light curtain rod and a lamp above the work area.
Features of the working area
Sufficiently bright lighting is needed, because if it is lacking, the student will get tired much faster and will be distracted. The work area should be as spacious as possible so that the child can act freely. Movement helps to stimulate brain activity and reduce impulsive behavior, so the student can and should even move while working. An armchair or chair on wheels is suitable for this.
Everything on the shelves
When it comes to homework, almost all parents hear from their child that he is tired, can't find a pen, will do his homework later, or didn't have anything to do today. If you properly organize the order on the desktop, it will be much more convenient and interesting for your child to do homework without looking for pretexts and excuses.
Easier to find
You will need a drawer or drawer to store school supplies. For convenience, you can divide the contents of the boxes into items or alphabetically, and make cute stickers with signatures. So the child will remember where everything is. For separate sheets with tests or assignments, get a folder or an envelope, do not forget to sign it as well.
Easier to reach
If possible, do not choose cabinets with glass or mirrored doors, prefer open shelves to closed ones. Do not put heavy dictionaries or other items high on the shelves, it will be inconvenient for the child to take them from there. Try to put heavy objects as low as possible. It is better to arrange books in height and sign the spines so that the child can immediately take what he needs.
Keep the most valuable
It is better to store all toys in a separate box, placing it under the table. Leave only the most beloved on the shelves so that the child can get them at any time. It is convenient to use small drawers with sliding compartments, where you can also arrange all things by theme, you can stick a bright picture on each drawer, which will be associated with its contents by the child.

Easier to practice
It is necessary to maintain order on the table, you definitely need a stand for pens and pencils, a stand for textbooks. It is very important that the child has a sufficient number of visual aids: a multiplication table, a table of measures and weights, geographical maps or a globe. Put a clock on the table. Psychologists believe that a child needs a 10-minute break after half an hour of work. The clock will tell the child when to take a break. Hang a calendar on the wall where you and your child will celebrate parent-teacher meetings, tests, or school holidays. Don't forget to mark school holidays and your birthdays!
If the room is small, try to save space by hanging light hanging cabinets for books and textbooks from the ceiling along the perimeter of the room. You can also equip a podium on which to install a desktop, and put everything that interferes (for example, out-of-season clothes or sports equipment) inside the podium. You can place a small basket under the desktop for things that are not used every day.
So that the child himself can decorate the room with his drawings, applications or other crafts, screw a wooden plank to the wall at a low height. With the help of ordinary buttons, the child will be able to hang any pictures he likes, and the wall will not deteriorate. It is very convenient to make a shelf or pockets on a free wall in which a child can put some important little things that should always be at hand.
Install a computer
On an ordinary desk for a student, as a rule, there is not enough space for a computer or laptop. As a compromise, you can choose a corner table.
Required condition: children's furniture must be made of high-quality, environmentally friendly materials and not cause allergies.
