We don't have a dedicated homeschool room at our house. Our learning takes place in various locations- so mostly I am good with this. Some days, I do think it would be nice to have a room to display things in and then be able to close the door on all the mess...
Our house has a front living room and also a family room. Sky suggested I turn the front room into a homeschool room. I declined, after living in a very small house with a small living area (singular) I couldn't give up the luxury of not one living room- but two! Also, I thought it would be strange to have a school room as the first thing you see when you walk in...
I have a great big closet that I store my homeschool junk-habit (um, educational supplies) our learning area is comprised of this closet, the bookcase and our craft table pictured above.
I beg to differ...
On this bookshelf I have 2 different Sonlight Cores, and the top shelf holds magazine boxes for each student- these contain workbooks we use everyday- such as our Math. Next to each box is a 3-ring binder for each child, this holds their week's work plus work completed for the month.
This is my chalkboard of ultimate power- (from another post) it's a small wall between our dining room and family room. Sky painted it with chalkboard paint. I use it mostly for scheduling purposes, but I also sometimes use it for lessons.
Our school-life is part of our every day family life, it's just how we live, so I am very comfortable with it spreading itself out into our house.
I do admit though, some days, I think it would be really nice to have everything in a room that I could shut the door on!
Thank you for visiting our learning area,
tell me about your school spots...!
