Homeschool Space 2014-2015
This is where homeschool happens. It hasn't changed a whole lot from last year, which you can see here. We still live in the same duplex, so school is done on our kitchen table. Almost everything we use is on these two bookshelves. I really like having everything right next to us. I don't mind my house looking like we have kids and homeschool, because we have kids and we homeschool!
Here's a closer look at just the book shelves. On the top and bottom are Joshua's "school time boxes". I have a lot of the My Father's World preschool toys, and several home made boxes for him to use. Matthew will be allowed to play with some of them too. The bottom two shelves are for the little boys, anything important must be kept higher!
The middle shelf holds their binders and books for the year. Rebekah has way more than Caleb because she is doing 1st grade, and then also tagging along for Exploring Countries & Cultures. Each kid, including Joshua, has a school box full of supplies.
The top shelf holds all our curriculum that we don't need every day. Those manila folders that you see full of paper are our student sheets that come with MFW. On the next shelf down, I have two more labeled manila folders where I put the student sheets for the current week. Next to them I have my teacher manuals, grid sheets, and the books that we use every day, or are going to use that week (like math and spelling). I made copies of the grids and put them in a file folder. I paper clip the current weeks grid to the outside of the folder and store the rest inside.
I am mostly excited about this wall! In our hallway, I hung our world map as well as a poster with all the foreign missionaries from the United Pentecostal Church International. I sent them an email asking if I could purchase one of these posters and they sent me 3 for free!
Here is my desk in the corner of our living room. Some homeschool stuff is stored under my desk in totes, and a few extra books are lined up behind my computer. (Sorry, I didn't clean for the picture!)
Lastly, our hall closet is FULL of games, puzzles and miscellaneous school stuff! That's all for now, hope you enjoyed your tour.
