For those of you who could care less about school rooms...well, go read politics or something on my hubby's blog: Ramblings...
We live in a small three-bedroom house: no family room, no basement, no dining room. So we converted on of the bedrooms into a schoolroom/playroom/office/part-time nursery, and even though it's not a lot of space, we love having a semblance of a school room, at least. Here you see part school and part play. That shelving unit holds toys, mostly the non-educational kind! :)
We incorporated workboxes into our school this year. Since we will have many interruptions this year with Olivia going to preschool three mornings a week and Madeline in therapy here at home four times a week, we needed something that would give Carli some ownership and would keep her on track with what she can do. This is based loosely on Sue Patrick's system, but I've never read the book. I have however read lots of info from many great blogger's out there! I used the tags and grid from The Heart of Wisdom blog.
The shelf under the window holds a our pencils, markers, etc, and lots of our educational activities. Carli's desk under one of our maps (beloved by all....the maps, that is) and mini-office.
Mini-Office (I used some of the things from Teaching Heart, but I don't remember where each piece came from.) The mini-office includes ASL alphabet; ZB cursive and manuscript alphabets;
Our shelf for baby board books, level reading books, etc. The board has the kid's morning routine to keep them on track while I get Maddy ready for the day.
Yep, that's a changing table in the closet! :)
The other tall shelf holds a lot of our read-alouds, puzzles and blocks. Livy's desk below the other big map.
Stay tuned! Coming soon: First week of school using My Father's World curriculum.
