*A Kentucky mom has crafted a DIY remote learning set-up for her three children that is so dope, it has gone viral.
Angelina Harper, a special education teacher from Louisville, built work stations for each of her children, Aubrie, 8 and twins Paige and Peyton, 6. Photos of the workspaces posted on her Facebook page garnered a quick 126,000 likes and 29,000 shares.
“I think it’s something so many families can relate to,” Harper told “Good Morning America.” “I’m trying to figure out what’s going to work in our home. Some families might say, ‘We have limited space, limited resources.'”
Harper said it cost her under $20 to make one learn-from-home station, and purchased most of the materials at a dollar store. She bought tripod foam boards and cut them in half. Each work station has a child’s name, a pouch to keep their daily schedule, a clip-on light, a calendar and a hook for hanging headphones. On each station Harper added words of affirmation like “you can do this,” “take a break,” or “we love you.”
“It’s mobile, affordable and it’s flexible,” Harper said. “If my son said, ‘I’m going to sit on the floor today instead of at the table,’ he could do that. It’s so multi-purpose, yet so simple.”
“If it helps someone else — a student, child, another parent — I think that’s so much more than a like or a share,” Harper said. “That’s where my heart is.”
