KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Working from home allowed some to create an office, use a kitchen table or stay comfy on the couch.

But the youngest learners may need a few added extras.

Here are eight budget-friendly tips.

One, use a trifold board or other school posters at your student’s desk to give them their own “classroom.” You can add items like a name tag and pencil bag to keep materials organized.

Two, don’t just think about the space in front of your student but behind them. Add wall décor to remind your child he or she is there to focus on school work.

Three, a clip-on selfie light can make sure your student has enough glow when asked to read aloud or answer a question. We found some for as cheap as $10.

Four, a paper planner helps your kids remember due dates so you don’t have to do so for them.

Five, give them a stress ball to squeeze when they’re anxious. It can also help with fidgeting if your student is having a hard time staying focused.

Six, blue light glasses protect your kids' eyes who use computer screens a lot. They filter out the light so your kids' eyes don’t become fatigued.

Seven, if your students aren’t listening to their teacher and classmates out loud, kid-size headphones fit easier than adult ones.

Eight, fine-tip dry erase markers can be easier for younger kids to hold since they’re thinner.
