We’ve had big houses and small houses, but I always find an “area” to call our school room.
As much as I love using our school room,
school does not always stay contained within those four walls;
*the living room is great for gathering together to watch educational shows.*the parents room is a great getaway place to concentrate.
*outside has got to be one of our favorite spots~ weather permitting.
*to simply sit on the stairs to read about nature while viewing the outside is encouraged.
This is our view from the entry way (as I stand by the pile of shoes).
I *love* my desk that I found at a garage sale last summer.
My absolute favorite teacher item.
Here is a closer look at our books. Admittedly I have many more books shelves throughout the house, but these are our favorite school books. Many were gifted to us. The handful in the top left cubby are ones I “made” using the Robinson Curriculum discs. Now I know how “Never judge a book by its cover'” is intended. These books have great content, some of them are quite priceless, like learning so much more about the Life of George Washington (than I ever did in public school).
Here is the stair-side wall.
Again, the piano was gifted to us,
and is probably Katie’s favorite school item. =)
We are oh.so.blessed to have a brilliant young lady come to our house for Katie’s piano lessons.
Another closer look at the bookcase full of learning.
Our final wall. (I could not get good lighting for this pic).
The left is our state & world map,
along with our compassion kids seasonal display.
This helps us stay focused on praying for them.
The ‘pet’ center is on top of our workbox drawers.
and the easel is used oh.so.very.often.
Many folks want a closer look at how we keep our schoolwork organized. Let’s face it, paperwork and supplies for 4 of my own students (plus the 3 students we add to our day) can make for a chaotic paper trail. My kids just simply work down the list of drawers/subjects.
This corner is where we stash many of our preschool activities for our learning trays.
Our school room is most commonly used for preschool (10 a.m.),
Andrew’s Learning Lesson’s (11 a.m.),
and for our group studies; aka ‘power hour’ for the older kids (1 p.m.)
It is also endlessly used as a craft & activity place!
Who needs a fancy dining area when there is learning to be had… right!?
Whether you homeschool or not, where would your favorite place be in your home to study?
