Homeschool Room 2013-2014

The homeschool room was transformed over the summer into a clean, bright happy place for learning (that still blends in with the house.)

IMG_8129 Can I just say, it’s freakin hard to get good pictures of a whole room.  ;)  Here is the view as you walk in from our kitchen.  My desk is in the middle facing the window (love this!) with two folding tables butted up together and against the end of my desk.  Ds4 on the right, ds3 on the left.  The tables provide them with plenty of working room and I am close enough to keep an eye on their progress.

IMG_8127 This view is from the opposite side as you enter our home.  That is why I like that the space is relatively uncluttered…it’s the first room people see when they come into our house.  I am proud we homeschool and love that we have a room we can devote to it, but it’s nice too that the room doesn’t stand out as much.

IMG_8128 Closeup of the shelf holding basically all our resources.  This stuff used to reside in our hall closet and I am pretty happy that there is a neat, centralized area for it in the schoolroom now.

Top shelf holds non-fiction resources filed in magazine holders by subject.  Middle shelf has three large magazine holders for the books we use daily and room for the various binders that keep my life (somewhat) organized.

IMG_8143 IMG_8144 Bottom two shelves house larger books and supplies and some fabric bins for toys and misc.  I got those at the Dollar Store by the way, and they have been awesome.

IMG_8145 The back of the door leading into the kitchen holds a whiteboard that we use everyday.  It’s been a wonderful addition to the room, and having it on the door is rather handy.  There is a magnetic cup for holding the markers and a magnetic eraser as well.

IMG_8124 In the middle of the work tables is a muffin tin with cups for crayons and a lazy susan to hold other supplies such as pencils, pens, markers and scissors.  No one has to leave the table to find supplies.  :)

IMG_8125 IMG_8126 A bulletin board for learning posters and clock reside on one wall, a world map and calendar on the others.  I know you can’t really tell, but the walls are a beautiful light green.

IMG_8114 Maybe this pic helps.  :)

That’s it, the new and improved school room!  I wonder how long it will stay looking so neat and clean.  ;)  If you are curious as to what the room has looked like in the past, click here or here or here.  But not here.  I’m adding this post to the “Not Back To School” blog hop, it’s lots of fun and tons of inspiration so join in (just click on the image.)

  1. LOL did you say stay neat and clean... We have to do a weekly cleaning session of our room or it gets very trashed very quickly!!

    What a wonderful school room, I love the green color!! I may have to give your idea of putting each kids books into a box, our school books have drawers but always end up in piles on the tables sigh...

    Have a great week!!
