Homeschooling room

Saturday, September 10, 2016

Before I start this post, I want to say that I am no homeschooling expert. Although I used to be a classroom teacher many, many moons ago, homeschooling my own children is a whole different story. I just wanted to share a few things we are doing this year because I've found so much inspiration from other homeschooling mama's out there. I feel like I'm always ears for any advice on what other mama's do, so here's whats been working for us around our home. :)

Our classroom last year was in a room in back of the house, but we had to convert it into a home office for my husband recently. Therefore, we got kicked out into the front "formal living room" of our house. I love this room for how bright it is, but my major hesitation was that it was the front of the home with no door. Therefore, if you walk to the front door or first walk in, you see our classroom. There was no closing of the door to hide the mess. I also wanted the room to have somewhat of a still grown up space look. Does that even make sense? So, I had to do some brainstorming to combine both classroom yet still functional as adult space look. 

Its still a working progress, but its a nice blank slate to start our school year. I love that I made every space of that room resourceful and the girls know exactly where to find things (and most importantly put them back).

Here's my classroom "supply list":

I'm excited to slowly fill the walls as the year goes on with art work and things that we are really proud of. I hope this is helpful for you, if you are in the same boat as creating a learn and living space in the same room like me.

I'm hoping to share our curriculum soon too. Until next time, happy learning friends!
