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