We are ready! 2012-2013 School Area



Our first week of school will begin Monday, August 13 and we are ready!  Here are a few more areas of our school room.  This room is located in our bedroom so we share the area.  I try to keep it all separated so it doesn't feel overwhelming.  We changed things a little from last year by adding individual desks.

We meet at the school table and the kids will finish their work at their desks.  The chairs will be rolled from area to area - yeah they love that!  The grey chair is mine and I sit in front of the bookshelf where my teacher manuals and supplies are stored.

This desk is for my freshman - he is pretty much independent now but still likes to stay in the room with us.  He does have a desk in his room though if we are too loud.  :)

Calendar area - my birthday was Friday.  :)

Birthday goodies - I am loved!

MFW-AHL books for Jonathan

 Sonlight Readers For Stephen

Here are some fun back to school goodies waiting on each desk for Monday!  Simple but they love it!  I am a big fan of Crayola.

  1. Looks GREAT! I've been getting things ready here too. But we're not supposed to start until Sept. 4th. The kiddos and I were too excited to start Mystery of History though...soooo...we're a couple chapters in! Ooops.

    Crayons was most of our school supplies purchase, too. A nice big box with lots of colors and erasable colored pencils very important around here!

  10. I have all boys (as it looks like you do, from the picture), so your page looks like a great reference for me as I'm considering home schooling next year! Keep up the helpful posts!

  11. Love the room! It looks to be pretty functional and organized. Two things that I still struggle with. I do like the changes you made as the older kids tend to want a space of their own to study.
