Our School Room

I've been working hard to organize and make our school room a pleasant place to be. We don't do all of our work in in here, but we do some. And, I personally love having a place for everthing.

We painted the bottom a cheerful apple green. It really is a happy and soothing room.


This is the other wall. We have a reading corner and a chest full of my supplies, extra notebook paper, and folders. On top we have our new art station with items that are used most often. A roll of paper, crayons, glue, scissors, and that huge red bucket full of markers I picked up at a garage sale for $3.

The red basket beside the chest is my organization for school. (Like the workbox system) We have folders labled with numbers, and I slip the work in order for the day.


Here is a closer look at our reading corner. It has a big comfy chair, and a small book shelf (holder) my wonderful husband made out of pallet from our new grass. I found a beautiful fabric for the windows, but I don't want to spend the money, so maybe later. These work just fine.


Here is our nature table. It holds all of our treasures, a magnifying glass, nature kaleidoscope, books, and our journal.



Our little shelf holds a writing center with pencils, notebooks, dry erase boards, magnetic poetry, notecards, and a picture dictionary.


Along with some early readers.


This is the other wall. Dress up clothes, a closet, and a shelf with manipulatives, fine arts, and preschool trays.



The closet holds books and projects we'll be using through out the year. It also has the items I use for the preschool trays.


That's it! The school room is finished and ready to be used. We usually do reading and small activities in there. Our main studies are simply taken (in the red crate) to the kitchen so I can cook, or clean while we are working.

Okay, this is gorgeous! What a lovely space to live and learn in. Can we come by and do some work with you? You make me want to start school! I have already begun organizing my school room too. Hopefully, it turns out as inviting as yours :)
Thanks for sharing because as homeschool moms, we really need the inspiration to begin and then to persevere!

I love how you used an old printer tray to hold nature treasures--now I know what to do with one I've had collecting dust! And I LOVE the shade of green. Do you happen to recall the color name and company? Would love to use in a bedroom.

Monica said...
