How to Prepare Your Learning Space

We are big fans of making sure learners of all ages have spaces where they are comfortable and have what they need to stay in the zone of optimal learning. Here’s a short list of things you may want to put near you when ZOOMing with us this week. 

Think of this as your “Things to pack” list:

  1. Blankets, pillows, cushions
  2. Bubbles (of course)
  3. Essential oil diffuser, incense
  4. Fans, pinwheels
  5. Fidgets
  6. Modeling clay, play dough, gak
  7. Natural or mood lighting, lava lamps, sun lamps
  8. Paper and colorful markers, pastels, and colored pencils
  9. Snacks (crunchy, healthy, soothing)
  10. Treadmill, standing desk, stationary bike
  11. Yoga ball, mat, block, cushion
  12. Water – or beverage of choice
  13. What else can you think of that will make you even 10% more comfortable?
