Our School Room


It's School Room Week at the Not-Back-to-School Blog Hop. Here is where we do school... and, of course, all over the rest of the house. When we moved into the house, I wasn't really sure how we would use the space, and homeschooling wasn't something I had ever thought about seriously. Now I am so very thankful to have this room!

The school room doesn't get a lot of natural light, so we work together often at the dining room table and in our family room (below).


Hannah's desk is currently in between coats of paint, but you get the picture. The door to the right of her desk is to the garage, so this is a high-traffic area.


Will's desk... (that I pulled from a neighbor's trash!)


Buckets for toys, math manipulatives, blank paper, games, puzzles...


Books, books, books... the bottom 2-3 shelves are for school (and 2 of the cabinets beneath the shelves).



We don't use the secretary desk as a desk, just a catch-all. A tour... Left door is to the kitchen. Middle door is to the foyer. Right door is a closet.


I posted photos of our school room two years ago (before I had even officially started homeschooling). Since then, the kids have their own desks and we have accumulated a lot more books and stuff.

Thanks for visiting!

  10. very nice! I'm sure it makes for great learning time. I like a school room that has 'real' books in it, part of the family library, but the kids stuff on the accessible shelves. What a pleasant place. I'm inspired to work on mine a little more now. Thanks for sharing!
