As I finish off my posts for the 5 Day Homeschool Blog Hop, I thought it would be nice to show you how we have our classroom set up for 2014-2015. So far we have homeschooled more on than off in the past three years. We LOVE it. However, it seems with each passing year we find we need to our lesson space set up differently. We have found many different ways of making education fun and enjoyable. The layout for our teaching space definitely has an impact on it.
Last year we started out in our living room and used our big TV a LOT with an HDMI cable hooked to my computer to it. We played a LOT of videos and online games for education, but that was also because Del was at work and we could use his internet primarily. Plus with three kids on my hands, it wasn’t exactly easy breaking down and teaching them the way I would have liked.
This year though, we actually have turned in our extra room into a classroom. We have our big dry erase board back up on the wall, desks for everyone. Zeva will be getting her own space between now and Monday too, but Roam wasn’t built in a day. I still have some minor little tweaks to make to make our area look a little less cluttered, but of all I’m very pleased by how Del has set us up this year. (We still have to get our book shelves up with all of our kids’ books on it.)
I hope you enjoy seeing our work area as much as I enjoy snooping in on other homeschool families working areas.
If you have suggestions or ideas or want to share your work space with us, please by all means add them in the comments.
