Our New School Room

In the last year, we have settled into the new reality of the housing market.  After 10 years in our home, we may actually be able to break even.  Sad, I know.  Rather than sitting around moping, I finally decided to be proactive about this.  I'm tired of setting up my home for some future hypothetical sale.  I want to use my home for my family.  With that motivation and with the addition of 2 more "students" at the homeschool table, I finally decided to move away from the kitchen table and use our dining room for our homeschool room.  Yes, the dining room table is still there, but it is covered by a couple tablecloths to be a buffer against the regular use.  I've been wanting to do this for years.  It's a gigantic statement, "Yes, we're homeschoolers and we love it!"   Hope you like the changes.

The Whole Room

Our Calendar Board

Our Morning Routine is almost entirely contained on this wall.

What's a homeschool room without a cute baby?

Our computer area for typing, math, art, music and downloading pre-K packets.

Our curriculum and binder shelves (unfiled school papers included).

Our Pre-K manipulative corner.  We keep items that we can recycle into craft projects here, too.

Our Pre-K packets, stencils and tangrams.

Our Kid of the Day and Kid of the Month schedule and rules.

Our white board for Sequential Spelling, Sonlight timeline items and Sonlight geography.

Our new wall maps.  Hooray!

Happy Homeschooling this year!

Sweet Blessings,


  1. Oh, Hooray! Having a room dedicated to "school" is so important. I especially love "baby's" blanket. SOOO cute! I wish you the best year yet!

  2. I love what you've done with your homeschool room! It's inspired me to make some changes in my own. :) I hope you and your family have a wonderful school year.

  3. Looks great! We have yellow for our walls too and I love how cheery it makes the learning room.
