Our School Room
I am putting some thought into this topic for this week's blog hop. We don't have a school room per se. Learning takes place everywhere. It should take place everywhere. I tell my children that if we are ever out and someone asks them why they aren't in school, they should say, "I'm homeschooled. Every minute is a learning opportunity."
As far as "doing" schoolwork, Horse Girl has a loft bed with a desk underneath. She likes to work there. Also, this year, she really wanted backpack. I think it is a little funny for a homeschooler to have a backpack, but she really wants to experience a little more of "real school."
Pea Picker and Bubbie Boy do most of their work at the kitchen table--the most convenient place for mom.
Last year, I invested in a basket for each to store books. It has been a wonderful organizational tool.
Also, my wonderful Lovin' Man made a white board/organizational board. The white board is on the right. On the left are bins for storing papers (and other stuff) and clips for displaying artwork, etc.
Here's to a wonderful, productive school year no matter where our children choose to learn or where they learn best.
