Soon to school - in August it's time to do it.Arrangement of a workplace for your future high achiever. For the first time in his life he is attending classes or in the tenth - it is not so important as how the chosen furniture, lighting and storage systems affect health and academic performance. Do not know what to do? We will tell you what to look for. The situation in the office affects the result of efforts and overall well-being - any adult will confirm this, even if you have to work at home. Schoolchildren have their own tasks - to get knowledge, and an organized workplace certainly structures this process and makes progress stable. Do not think that the sofa and laptop are enough to keep pace in all subjects. Try from the very first days to ensure your son or daughter the opportunity to learn peacefully, fruitfully and without harm to health.
Where to find a place
Ideally, the work area should be maximallyIsolated. To arrange it in a passage room or in the kitchen is not a good idea, but if there are no other options, try to separate the place visually or using a mobile screen. It is very important that in the field of view of the student focused on their own affairs, the image flashing on the television screen does not fall.
How to choose a table
The parameters of the correct table are in the straight lineDepending on the size of the young growing body. With a varying height - a solution that will help to adapt to the growing body. It's simple - putting your elbows on the table, the child should effortlessly reach out with his fingers to the temples. With an increase of 120 centimeters, the height of the table will thus be about 52 centimeters, with an increase of 160 to 67 centimeters. The width of the table depends on what is on it. Most likely, over time there will be a computer - doctors recommend to put it so that the screen was 60-70 centimeters. A retractable shelf will help to find additional space for the keyboard. First-graders who are only learning to read and write, it is important to ensure a minimal load on the eyesight and spine. This can be done if the table top is slightly tilted - so that the distance from the eyes to the book or notebook is about 30-35 centimeters. Authors - PlatFORM Design Studio Our opinion: - The glossy surface of the table hurts the eyesight - glare wears the eyes. A black color contrasts too much with the whiteness of the paper. Choose light matte natural materials and avoid sharp corners.
How to choose a chair
Table and chair must be selectedAt the same time, and your student should take the most active part in the choice. With the correct position of the body, the legs are bent at right angles and stand on the floor or stand, the loin touches the back of the chair, reaching the edge of the blades. The height-adjustable seat and backrest with the possibility of changing the slope is the best choice if you do not plan to change furniture every year. The wheel chair is easier to move, but make sure they are securely fastened. For younger students, experts still advise buying a simple chair without armrests - there is less temptation to turn around, skate and distract from the lessons. An inconvenient position during the work on the lessons is a guarantee of potential health problems, so be sure to make sure that the child is comfortable and watch his posture. Our opinion: - Rounded corners of the seat and reliable retaining legs are the key to reducing the likelihood of minor household injuries. Materials choose with the content of natural fibers, and forget about the skin - the touch to the seat should be pleasant both in the heat and in the cold.
Subtlety of lighting
In order to make lessons, it was convenient, andNatural, and artificial lighting. A universal rule: the source of light must be on the left and in front at the right-handers and on the right of the left-handers, so the shadow does not fall on the paper by hand. The light from the window is more pleasantly scattered - do not arrange a workplace on the windowsill, retreat by 40-50 centimeters. At dusk, turn on the upper light and the desk lamp. The recommended lamp power is 40-60 watts. Experts consider optimal for eyesight that does not distort color and does not affect the sight of warm white light - choose a light shade and a traditional incandescent lamp. Our view: - Optimum angle of light drop will change as your baby grows - buy immediately the lamp on the adjustable bracket.
Storage and organization
The storage system can be any - shelves, boxes,Baskets. But, if there is an opportunity to select several places for different categories: notebooks, textbooks, writing materials. Labels and labels will help first-graders not to be confused and easy to find the right one. Modules with transparent cells are a good option for primary school. Please note that everything taken away to the far corner will simply disappear from the memory of the schoolboy, actively using what is in sight. Walls should not be empty: Why not place a magnetic or cork board here? On it you can store a schedule, notes that remind you of important things and just inspiring pictures and letters of commendation. Our opinion: - Psychologists believe that in the process of memorizing a very important role is played by the graphic representation of the material. Teach your child to use a magnetic or cork board for training: here you can visually demonstrate the connections between the facts, draw diagrams and graphs, store cards with foreign words that you need to remember.
Importance of color
Of course, the color of the working area should be likeYour student - there is nothing more meaningless than trying to concentrate where something is annoying. Universal advice: choose neutral tones, but perhaps the temperament of the child should be taken into account. Blue and green tones will sooth the choleric, help concentration, yellow and orange shades will add energy to the phlegmatic. Dark and gray shades are very fond - this palette helps them to feel their uniqueness. Our opinion: - Researches of scientists show interesting facts about interrelation of design of a premise and a psychological condition of pupils. So, cold tones contribute to concentration in general, and bright and warm improves the mood for children in primary school. Becoming older, students prefer more muted and pastel shades. And in a room with walls of a favorite color, fewer mistakes are allowed in the work.
