The short answer is no!

You as a parent can choose what your classroom will look like. Some parents prefer a designated area for educational purposes, others make use of a variety of places, math at the kitchen table, reading in the family room, drama in the basement, science at the kitchen counter; the choice is yours. You will, however, find it useful to set aside space for books, projects, paper, resources, craft supplies, etc. that you will utilize in your studies.
