It's that time of year once again that all homeschoolers share their workspace! This is one of my favorite posts that I watch for... I know its crazy but true!
Alright just a heads up...
We school all over our house. Homeschooling for us is a lifestyle not just something we do for an activity. I don't care that someone comes in my home and sees our school books or posters or art work. That's just what my family is about. We do not have ONE schoolroom. We actually have tried but failed miserably. I can't stand to stay in one spot all day and it just wasn't a good idea for our family.
Background on my family if your new:
We have only been in our house for a year. We school year round with the new year starting in September. I have 3 wild kiddos that I love more than anything besides my awesome and wonderful Savior!
90% of our school work is completed in the Diningroom but we move around a lot too. Read a louds on the sectional or my bed, science outside or in the kitchen! Documentaries of course in the living room on the couch but we have watched some in my bedroom before too!
Our kitchen. This is a well used area or should I say highly used area!
The Livingroom is one of my favorite places to cuddle with the kids. We have an open basement which gives us a small open space for the computer to have a home. The keyboard/piano is behind and I forgot to take a picture but it stays here to be hooked up to the computer for lessons. The kids use the computer regularly with guidance.
Here is where we tried to have a schoolroom last year and it lasted about 6 weeks and I was done! I moved everything around in one day and when Kevin came home he just laughed and didn't even ask why. I couldn't take it any more and I think he understood. I love our basement because its so open. All the kids toys are down there. Our extra supplies for school are down there too. Our basement is like a den it has a spare bed, couch, table, toys and the washer & dryer.
A lot of our books, games and manipulative's are housed here. This eliminates a lot of mess. I am thankful for all the space my house gives.
My kids also school in their rooms however I'm not posting those pics for personal reasons!
I love this blog hop and I hope you enjoyed looking inside our home for our 2013/2014 school year!
We school just like you do! We lasted in our designated school room about half a day.ReplyDelete
No basements in Louisiana, so I think that is the coolest thing. Other than that, it looks like we do school a lot alike.ReplyDelete
Love it! We were definitely on the same wave-length because we do school where you do- everywhere!ReplyDelete
I do have a dedicated schoolroom but I can see how it would be nice to move around through the day. Often I find myself dragging school stuff up to the kitchen table or into the bedrooms just for a change of pace. We have even been known to toss stuff in the car and head to a park for a change in scenery!ReplyDelete
I love this! Last year was our first official year. We had a school room but only used it for the second half of the year. I find that we don't school traditional hours or set hours plus I've also got a toddler and newborn and being in one room like that doesn't work for us. I love seeing other people that do it this way too. We do a lot in our family/dining/kitchen. It is one large area that is open. I'm really curious about year round homeschooling. What does it look like for your family? Do you have set hours and just take a few weeks off here and there?ReplyDelete
Does anyone ever have enough bookshelves? No. The answer is always no. :) The playroom/basement looks like such a blessing! Thanks for sharing your homeschool space.ReplyDelete
Now I don't feel so bad that we homeschool all through house. I wish I had an extra room in this house for homeschooling. I hang the art work in the hall way so people can see it.ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing your homeschool house. That is how we do homeschool too, more because I don't have room otherwise.ReplyDelete
we have a schoolroom, but we mostly use it for storage -- we homeschool all over the house, too!ReplyDelete
