According to government statistics, there are about 1.7 million K-12 students being home schooled in the U.S. this year, which is about 3.5 % of all students. The numbers for home schooled kids has been growing steadily over the past 10 years, and often parents will try to have their home school environment mirror a real classroom.
Many home school families set aside a room in their home to be a classroom. This helps separate the things kids do for recreation like watching TV and playing video games from the serious nature of learning.
Keeping schedules on the wall for each subject, for example, reminds students that each time segment is dedicated to a particular subject or exercise. Perhaps a test is scheduled for every Thursday, and it's important to have that "on the board" just as it would be in a real classroom.
Rather than install heavy whiteboards to their walls, home school parents have found that a self-stick adhesive dry erase film works well to create a classroom environment. Whiteboard in a Box can be cut to accommodate most every need, and it stays in place for the whole school year and beyond.
Kids can work out math problems, practice spelling, or create art projects just like a dry erase board in school. Write with Attitude markers are bold and bright, and clean up easily with a cloth or whiteboard eraser.
