I always hesitate to say “our school room” because we actually learn in many rooms of our home. And yes, our school rooms do come with a very energetic 3-year-old. (see picture above– bottom left)
Our first learning area is our living room (shown above). This is where we begin our days with Bible and memory work. You’ll find us returning to this area to read books together and play blocks & games on the rug.
Behind the couch is our “middle school” for the two older boys, 6th and 8th grades.
Tucked behind the living room door is our nature table and memory work board. As the year goes on, this area will be filled with nature finds and books.
From our living room we go into our middle room which is the home to our “elementary school” for the girls, 3rd grade and Kindergarten.
There is a folding table (you may see it in the picture above – under the calendar) that is pulled out and set up for the girls to do their school work.
To help keep up with paint, extra glue, and other supplies we use a shoe organizer behind a door in the middle room.
We also have little storage containers to take to the desks that hold pencils, markers, crayons, etc.
And shelves…you can never have enough shelves to help organize school things.
These shelves hold books and items that we will need this school year.
Our children’s books, unused school books, manipulatives, art supplies, and preschool things are on shelves in the hall.
I’ve written more about homeschooling in a small house here.
