I don’t think I have ever posted pictures of our school room before and since a wonderful friend recently helped me rearrange some things it I thought it would be a good time to share pics.
Here is our circle time area. Our circle time area is to the right when you walk in the room and behind the door is our calendar, family mailboxes and school rules. We use the little mail boxes to put their allowance in and write notes to each other.
In the middle of the room we have our school table and up against the wall is Emily’s workboxes. Ellie is using a notebook instead of a workbox that you can see on the back of her purple chair. I will talk more about how Ellie is using her school notebook in another post.
In one of the dormers there is a cabinet that holds the curriculum that doesn’t get used as often and the baskets on top hold the curriculum that we use on a daily basis.
Also, in this dormer is our animal wall from Road Trip USA and our Mystery of History time line.
In the other dormer we have our foam alphabet that we are working on. All of the foam letter ideas came from Totally Tots.
My friend had the great idea of putting all of our books in file crates so the girls can easily flip through them. So they run along the back wall of the room. This has been such a huge hit! They aren’t in alphabetical order but all of the A’s are together and B’s are together etc.
Our art shelf is tucked behind our chair but it wasn’t quite big enough to hold everything so there is a SMALL closet right beside it so I put a shoe holder on the back to help hold our loose items.
On our longest wall we have a sofa and chair because this is also the room where we watch TV and I have a craft nook in the corner but it was too messy to photograph:)
