Homeschool room essentials
Ava Stenstrom, Staff Writer
Have you found yourself wanting to revamp your room lately? With all of the extra time we are spending at home I have compiled a list of the nine most important essentials for at-home school from Wilsonville High School students.
Organization is crucial when it comes to online school. A corkboard can be used as a way to organize your thoughts or just as a pretty decoration. This is Kaitlyn Shkutniks board that she has in her room, “I made it for a project in yearbook but I liked it so much, I decided to keep it up as decoration.” You can either hang up photos or you can write notes about things like assignments and tes...
Airpod pros have a great noise canceling feature which is perfect if any other members of your family are working or doing school from home. Hailey Flick invested in a pair at the beginning of the school year and she “can focus on classes so much better without the distraction from outside noise”.
Hunter Mcilmoil uses a planner to organize her assignments and tests “I have to use a planner otherwise I will forget what I am supposed to be doing each day, especially with online school because I feel so much less connected to everything that is going on,”. If you have trouble remembering what homework you have due when this is the perfect solution.
We are all sitting at our desks doing online school all day; why not get a comfortable chair? Senior Kaitlyn Shkutnik uses this chair when doing her classes throughout the day. If we don’t have to suffer from the uncomfortable school chairs, let's not suffer with them at home.
Senior Jadyn Sherry swears by these pens and loves to use them to organize notes in all of her classes. “They help me to stay super organized and they make my notes look really nice!” Anything that helps with organization is essential especially when doing school from home.
LED curtain lights
These lights are so cute and make your room feel so much cozier. We’re all spending a lot more time at home and in our rooms, so now is the perfect opportunity to customize your room. Hailey Flick told me she loves the way hers look in her room and they add the perfect amount of light late at night and early in the morning.
This is a sweatshirt blanket that is the most comfortable thing you could wear for online school. These have been super popular lately and are a favorite considering we do not have to dress up for school right now. Hunter Mcilmoil loves hers, “I always wear it for school, it’s so comfortable and it makes doing school online so much better.”
The Amazon Alexa is great for doing things like setting timers, looking up photos, and asking quick questions too. I have one on my desk by my computer and I love it. Another thing that I love to do is connect my phone and use it as a speaker to play music!
Holder for your cords
This is a super cool way to keep all of your chargers from falling to the floor. You just stick it onto your desk and all of your cords and chargers go into it, keeping them up on your desk for when you’re ready to use them.
