It’s time to share our classrooms at Heart of The Matter Online –> “Not” Back- to -School Blog Hop!
This was my post last year for our Homeschool Class room.
It has changed a bit since then. I needed a bigger desk so that my children could sit next to me (individually)…, now, we have less floor space and we had to move our big comfy couch out. But, it works and I know we are blessed to have such a nice area for our ‘home’ base for school!
I love our windows and my desk has a lot of space. The children’s desks are positioned ‘in front’ of mine. However, they generally travel through the house to do their work. Their desks are mainly their ‘storage’ area…and a place for them to work if they need it. However, the floor, their beds, kitchen table…are many favorite places.
I do like the new book shelf I found at the same yardsale where I found my desk. That has been a nice ‘new’ addition.
I have a few maps I want to have laminated, as well as our “Seven C’s” poster. Once I have that laminated, I’ll hang it up above the ‘window’ into the kitchen. If you look behind the easel, you’ll see, I have our flags and calendar. Below that is the white magnet board for my little guy’s phonics. I love having windows on two walls…and my book shelf, but that reduces wall space…so, we have to double-up in some areas!
The children still enjoy going outside (when it isn’t too hot) and working out there….
so, while I wish we still had our big comfy couch in our class……we are fully enjoying our entire home more!
OH, today is the first day of Public school in our area….we are going to celebrate with “School at the Pool”…. We’ve packed our books and will head up to the pool to splash/play and enjoy the beautiful day (as long as the weather holds out). During the cooler months, we’ll head to the parks and enjoy learning in the open and playing during breaks! Do you enjoy special times like that?
