I admit it. I DON’T love my homeschool room. Whew. Glad I got that off my chest.
You see… I don’t have a homeschool room. Like a lot of people out there, our house is just too small to make room for all of us to sleep, eat, play, work and school. A big portion of our basement is dedicated to our home office, where my husband and I run our business. The other small area is for laundry and storage. The house is three bedrooms which is great (we had no kids when we moved here!) but they are all filled up with kids now! So where do we school?
Anywhere we can!
We use the dining table as our flat spot for writing. We use our couch for reading together, or alone. We use our back yard for art, nature studies, science lessons (too many trees for that solar oven to work, though!) and more reading. We’ve even used our windows accessible from the back deck as white boards.
Dry erase markers + windows = fun math time!
But then there’s all the STUFF that comes with homeschooling. Books, papers, plans, record keeping, manipulatives, organizing, workboxes… Where do we keep it all?
The coat closet of course.
I wrote in detail last year all about how we took our ex-coat closet and turned it into our homeschool hub. Most everything we need and use is in that closet, including our workbox drawers (I have an advantage over some, here: I use one set of boxes for three kids!) You can read the details of how I set it all up here.
Oh, how I long for a homeschool room with walls, floor space, individual space for the kids to work… Maybe someday!
