We redid our school room for this year, and I am so excited how it came out. The wall of shelves were custom built my brother. I actually thought I would have "room to grow" but after all those boxes of curriculum came in this year, I realized . . . well, we have too many books!
The cards on the wall are ABC verses that the kids have memorized. We love the 2 laminated wall maps, and do a lot of our mapping on them with a dry erase marker. The table and chairs were a family project my husband and dad did with the kids last year. The paper roll is from Ikea but stained black.
We hung a rope, painted some clothespins and now have a space for art display. The shelves on the right are Lego bins, with plenty of space to display their creations! It is a Target bookshelf with 2 fabric laundry bins on the shelves. It keeps those crazy Legos organized, so I love it!
Tot school! These bins are filled with toddler and preschool activities. There is a Handwriting without Tears bin with all of those manipulatives, a math basket, a reading basket, a lacing basket, along with other fun things like Leap Frog Letters, Lauri puzzles, and Duplex Legos. These activities are only for during school time and keep the 2 year old entertained!
36 folders holding all of our hands on project instructions, notebooking materials, and coloring pages for history. The white binder holds the history plans (a combination of Sonlight and Biblioplan).
These are the kids individualized bins. They hold their workbooks for them to have easy access. E's holds 2 sets of folders. One set holds all printables that are waiting to be done, by subject. (Tests and cumulative reviews for math, etc). And then they both have a set of pocket folders for each subject for completed worksheets and pages. I use these folders to compile their end of the year Portfolios.
Of course only part of school happens in the school room. We do a lot of the all together activities at the table or even on the couch! Bible happens every morning at the kitchen table.
We have this cabinet by the kitchen table that holds the CD/IPod dock, as well as all our CD's for school, Bible and memory materials, and puzzles and coloring books to keep the toddler busy when necessary.
Above the table are 3 dry erase bubbles. These serve as our memory review. Each week we do a Scripture memory verse, a We Choose Virtues character trait, and each month we have a Key Passage. Most of our memory work this year is from TRUTH 66. Each week as we add a new weeks verse, the last 2 weeks are still in bubbles so the new verse stays in rotation for 3 weeks before being added to the memory book for less frequent review.
And that is where we school and an overview of how we organize it!
