Not much has changed in the school room since I updated the School Room tab, but we have made a few additions:)
My extremely visual husband rearranged slightly to make our dining area more organized. The workboxes were moved behind the table, and a small table is hiding in the back between the workboxes to provide a place for my teacher’s manuals. We also added a whiteboard. At the moment, it is mostly used for our daily schedule and our Grapevine Bible Study.
Below is a snapshot of our revised workboxes! I printed off the subject card from Confessions of a Homeschooler, and we are using these instead of numbers now. Also, I am using the workboxes more as storage than a systematic system. Each drawer houses a subject and contains everything the child will need for that week (worksheets, books, manipulatives, etc). This set-up is working well for us so far. We might switch back to numbers once they get a little older, but this helps us all stay organized.
Each child also has one of these storage containers on top of their workbox (I found them for a dollar in the Target dollar area). The container holds their school supplies, supplies I need for the whiteboard, and their All About Reading/All About Spelling card boxes.
We added a “Pledge of Allegiance” chart to our calendar/circle time area. This year is a first serious year of homeschooling, and I thought it would be fun to add the Pledge to our daily routine.
Not much has changed in this section, but I did add a white milk crate as a “library” bin. When we check books out, the children have a specific place to put them in so they do not get lost!
I am pleased with our new additions thus far, and the school year is getting off to a wonderful start!
