"Moments spent listening, talking, playing, and sharing together may be the
most important times of all."
I wanted to post about how our school room looked at the start of this year. Mostly because I know from experience things will look very different at the end of the school year. It's so nice to start with a clean slate. Things are organized, categorized, and over all, very tidy.
Now we are blessed with a special place for our school. One central location to keep everything organized. One room, with a specific purpose. One room with a door that can close off the mess or distractions that pull at me every night - just one more project. Just one more craft. Just one more sweep to clean up.
The kids love their school room. But I think I love it more!
|Everything is ready. Except I need to buy a table and chairs.|
It's on my to-do-list. A.S.A.P
|A glimpse inside. The left pantry holds our Bible resources and various media. The right has a shelf for each child's curriculum, with art supplies and Spanish tools on the bottom.|
|I recently moved most of our books into a storage|
bin in the main closet. They are organized
by theme and topic. I am hoping this will make it easier for me
to find books, and will also allow a better rotation of the
material that we have.
|All four bins, filled to the brim with books!|
|A few of our Language Arts tools/toys.|
|All kinds of lacing...|
|Costumes and Dress-up|
separated into categories:
Super Hero and Princess
|More Language Arts.|
|Math manipulative's and games.|
As with each previous year, this school year brings excitement, anticipation,
a renewed sense of purpose, and lots of fun!
Though the academic basics are very important, it is the time we spend
listening, talking, playing, and sharing
that enrich our homeschooling experience.
Those times are our
Adventures in Homeschooling.
