I’d thought I’d share our little homeschool area.
Here is the girls bookcase (I just love this bookcase, it’s one of the things we added when we remodeled this house). The square tote at the top holds all the math manipulatives. The basket on the third shelf holds of our Spanish flashcards, and the basket below that normally holds all of our Leapfrog Tag Reader books (I am a HUGE fan of those, by the way!) and all of our Spanish language books.
To the left of our bookcase is a new addition to our little homeschool! Since Abby is now progressing with her reading, I created flashcards with all of the words she has learned to this point. Now we can use those flashcard words to play our “word game” (i.e. make sentences).
And quite often we will spread out on the floor right in front of this area with our work, when sitting at a desk just gets to be too much for our antsy selves.
And here are my “teacher” files. Inside are the teacher handbooks, the big binder of Abby’s work, record book, etc. The basket on top holds highlighters, pens, stapler, and the electric pencil sharpener (my personal toy). Also in this picture you see the trimmer and 3-hole punch. Seriously they should write on the front of the teacher’s manual how much you need these things! I could not live without them.
And this bin is our curriculum organized in folders by unit. I’ve organized our books with the connecting unit as well, so all we have to do is grab the next set of books and folder and get started. That really takes a lot of the pressure and stress out of homeschooling, and I wish I could say this simple, brilliant idea had been mine. But nope, another homeschooling mom came by and mentioned her idea and I copied her gladly!
So, that’s our little homeschool. I’ve seen other homeschool pictures that have amazing, ornate set ups — but I am happy to say it IS quite possible to homeschool, even if you have only a little corner to make it work.
