Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing our homeschool room tour with you! I want to preface this tour by saying, if you don't have a homeschool room don't sweat it. I didn't either when I first started homeschooling 16 years ago. We designated our kitchen table as the homeschool area. The budget was tight, the table was available, and that's what we used. It served us well for 10 years.
Click the button below if you are interested in seeing how I used my kitchen pantry as a mini office/storage space for homeschooling in the kitchen back then.
When we moved into our current home six years ago, the previous home owners left behind several white cabinets in the bonus room above the garage. I simply moved the cabinets apart to create desks for the kids. The bonus room became our homeschool room. "No fuss, no muss."
Let's take a look around the room, shall we.
This is a simple setup. My desk area is where I store the teacher manuals and a few extra readers.
I keep extra school supplies in the drawers.
Extra craft supplies are stored in the cabinet.
Quizzes, tests and worksheets are kept in a plastic file folder container that my husband used for his business years ago.
My eighth grader's desk area...nothing fancy here...decorated with Dollar Tree borders, a calendar and letters made out of construction paper.
Her curriculum is stored in the drawers on the right. She works her way through the lessons one drawer at a time.
Her school supplies are stored in the top left drawer. The Abeka DVDs, different types of paper, and anything else she may need are all located on the shelves in the bottom of the cabinet.
My fourth grader grandson's desk area. His setup is the same way. The curriculum stored in the drawers on the right, the school supplies and DVDs on the left inside the cabinet.
Alex has an art class this year in the Abeka program, so I have an additional "art cart" set up for him filled with extra art supplies, glue, and paper when he needs it.
Last but not least, our keyboard corner for piano practice, song writing and such. A TV/video game area where we can watch a movie or have a video game challenge on special days.
There has been a lot of learning and a lot of wonderful memories made in this homeschool room over the years.
Here's to another year of making meaningful homeschooling memories!
