WEST MICHIGAN — With most students not attending classes in their schools for the remainder of the school year, many parents have effectively become homeschool teachers.

That means kids' "classrooms" are being carved out of space in homes across West Michigan. Some had to get creative by using windows and walls as scheduling boards and other inventive ways to keep their children on track.

We asked our viewers to share some photos showcasing what their new homeschool setup looks like. Here are a few of the photos we received:

Kelley DeJonge's kids are all in the same classroom now. It looks like at least one of them is super happy about it too!

Every day is "Pajama Day," or at least it can be, at the home of Mary Beth Tanis.

Holly Smit from Jenison got creative with tape and markers to put a schedule up on her sliding glass door.

Many kids are feeding their brains in the same space where they feed their tummies, like Kristi Lynn Cortez Lee's kitchen table.

But Jamie Berry's son looks like he's got his own "home office" setup to get down to schooling. (And it's always nice to have a monster truck nearby for study breaks.)
