We are looking at different options for our "school room." We are extremely limited on space in our tiny 975 sq foot home. Previously I had thought I would put our schooling supplies and desks on our back porch/ 4 season room. But that has become our dining room as it is the only place where we can set up the high chair. Unfortunately this also means there is no longer room for our homeschooling stuff in the room too.
My next option is sectioning off part of our playroom for school stuff. My question is what surface do you find is most useful for teaching? I currently have one school aged daughter starting 1st grade, so teaching will be very time intensive between us. Should I look at a desk for her, preparing her for the days when she will be more of an independent learner? Or should I be looking for a table with multiple seats? Again, space is limited so I want to maximize every inch I can.
