I also have a section off to the side for my Tater Tot so play (on those super awesome foam mats). That has helped tons with Boo! She does much better during school time with Roo now that she has her own space!
I have to say, having a separate space for our school time has helped so much! Not only can I keep things cleaned up and organized easier, but when we are done with our school time we can leave it in our school room. Do you know what I mean? When we were doing it all at the dining room table, it just always seemed to be RIGHT THERE! Like we never finished with the books! YES, we are always learning! But we don’t always need to be “in school”.
