Our homeschool learning room hasn’t changed a lot since the previous years (2012, 2013), but for the sake of keeping a record I thought I would go ahead and share some photos. I won’t mention some of the areas I’ve discussed in the past. I’ll just hit the newer highlights in this post.
The biggest change is that we moved the piano against the wall which opened up the room quite a bit. I never liked it in front of the windows, but never took the time to get someone to help David move it. When my parents came to visit one day this summer, my dad helped David move it and I felt like I had a whole new room! Woo hoo!
I added the cords for hanging Caroline’s artwork at the end of last year. It really adds a lot of personality to the room and it makes it seem more her room as well.
Under the artwork you can see a wire basket hanging thingy I added that also has hooks. I’m using that for our Fun Fact Cards. I’m putting them on rings so I can hang them there and then the overflow this year will go in the basket up above. If they are easy to grab, they get used more often. Caroline has a to do list of topics she wants me to do that is a mile long. She’s really good at coming up with ideas.
On top of the craft cabinet (you can read more about the craft cabinet here) is my little teacher corner. Every item here has some special meaning to me from when I was teaching or else it was a gift from someone special.
This year we are going to start doing some more notebooking, especially since we are doing The Mystery of History. I turned this set of drawers into our notebooking station. I picked up a bunch of fun embellishments Caroline can use for notebooking. She knows that these supplies are only for notebooking and not for general crafting.
This is Caroline’s Duck Tape drawer. We hit the gold mine recently when someone was selling a bunch of partially used rolls on FB. LOL! I also keep her supplied as does my mom. I need to do a post with all her Duck Tape creations.
Lastly, here is my corner. It’s actually kind of deceptive because I rarely sit at the desk. The height of the desk doesn’t work well for me. But it holds my stuff as does the bookcase. I’d like to get a computer desk and computer in here eventually when it is in the budget.
