Our Homeschool Room

This is one of my favorite rooms in the house ~ now that it is de-cluttered, organized and clean!  Let me give you a little tour.

Please come on in……

This wall holds all of the items we use on a daily basis.  The small bookcase holds the books we will be using our first six weeks of school, our globe and paper.   The bins on the shelf hold our Math-U-See blocks, play-doh, and Dot paints.  I also have any items that I don’t want Aiden to reach on the shelf such as the pencil sharpener and our All About Spelling cards.  I hung metal tins below the shelves which hold colored pencils, markers, crayons, scissors, all things sticky, and pens for our dry erase board.   Below that I hung our dry erase board and a felt board.  The colored totes in the bookcase holds all of our magnetic and felt board items ~ such as letters, numbers, and felt sets so the kids can easily access them.

We have a small table where we sit to do most of our school work.  Emily’s workboxes are right beside the table for easy access.IMG_3318  

Next is our pie safe ~ which holds oh so much!  In the containers underneath is fabric Emily and Aiden are allowed to play with, extra school supplies and miscellaneous items (currently it contains pirate items).  On top I have lapbook and notebook pages we will need this year and my manuals.IMG_3340

Inside the pie safe I have all of our manipulatives, flashcards, games, science things and preschool toys.IMG_3331

Beside the pie safe I have a computer the kids are allowed to use ~ NO internet access!IMG_3317

Our entertainment center holds all of our toys, games, puzzles, and movies.  On top I have toys for outside and incentive items for the kids.IMG_3309

The next bookcase holds most of our books.  On top of the bookcase I display our nature items and nature books.  Notice the cute little kitten in the window?   IMG_3313_edited-1 

This is our art and music area.  The bookcase holds all of our art and music books as well as a basket of musical instruments (egg shakers, rhythm sticks and recorder).  The bottom shelf holds easy reader books.    IMG_3343

Lastly on our tour is the kids reading area with two cozy chairs and a basket of books.  IMG_3310

Truthfully the kids are usually bouncing and playing in the chairs instead of sitting.  I hope you enjoyed the tour!

Slowly I'm getting things to be presentable for others. Hopefully in a month......... Okay, really I hope it to be sooner. In my dreams it is.

I love your space, especially those chairs. I want chairs like that. I have no idea where I'd put them, but I want them.

Cindy, your schoolroom is a DREAM!!! LOVE it!!!

Paula said...

I love your room set-up!!! I can tell we think a lot alike, because i went "That's it!!!" when I saw the room and had been stuck in mywjat to do next in my room:)!! My room is about a third of that size, but my 8yo goes to her room to do her independent work, so two boys will fit in the space left:)
Thank you for sharing! I can tell we share some of the same philosophies in education. Were you a former teacher too?

Rebecca said...
