I have so enjoyed lurking today and getting a glimpse into so many school spaces. It has really given me inspiration and has gotten me excited all over again about the beginning of our homeschool journey. I decided to take the plunge and share photos of what will be our homeschool space and hopefully benefit from your ideas and advice!
In our new home, we are blessed with a large room with lots of windows, lots of drawers, and lots of bookshelves and cabinets. This room is currently the playroom and will extend to being the school room next fall. We hunker down in the bean bag chairs for our read-alouds now. I think that the drawers and shelves and cabinets will be really helpful with all the curricula and manipulatives and books and supplies we will collect. However, I can already tell that we'll need to start troubleshooting.
For one thing, the bookshelves are not adjustable and are a little too short for notebooks. Other than laying notebooks on their sides, do any of you have any suggestions for storing notebooks?
Within the drawers and cabinets, I can tell that we will need additional storage solutions like bins and baskets. Do any of you have some favorite storage solutions you'd like to share?
The windows are great for letting in light, but they don't leave much wall space for displaying materials (posters, whiteboards, bulletin boards, artwork)? Any suggestions? I have a couple of framed Mary Engelbreit posters from my old classroom that I have my heart set on including in the schoolroom, but would like room for instructional materials, too!
We will add the schoolroom a table and four chairs of my husband's from bachelor days. The top is laminate and easy to clean.
This is our space, and I would appreciate any advice on setting it up for homeschooling. I promise to repay by sharing once we are in the groove ourselves!
