In a time when many parents are splurging on classroom furniture and scouring Pinterest for homeschool room ideas to support remote education this year, mom and teacher Angelina Harper decided to get creative with her own kids' distance learning space instead.
According to a Facebook post, Harper was on the verge of purchasing a trio of new desks for her school-aged children when she had a better idea, one that would allow her kids to each have their own space and eliminate distractions while sitting together at the family dining table.
Enter: Harper's display board classrooms, made from simple (and inexpensive!) tri-fold presentation boards. She posted photos of the boards, bedecked with each child's name, essential school supplies, and a calendar, on her Facebook page, and it quickly went viral. At time of publication, the post had 140,000 shares, 18,000 comments, and had been liked 34,000 times.
