Well, I spent most of the morning doing some more planning, organizing, and cleaning. Our classroom is just about done, so I thought I'd share my progress. This room used to be our livingroom, but shortly after deciding to homeschool it turned into our classroom. We have a familyroom so it's really a blessing to have this space just for us to work in.
The big black desk is mine, but my oldest likes to do most of his work here. To the left I have all the books we use most frequently, TM's and workbooks. Next to that, I have manila folders for each week of the homeschool year. I've gone ahead and put the student sheets from MFWCTG and MFW1st in the corresponding folder. To the right you can see J-Saurus' orange folders. We use these like workboxes. The tall bookcase has all our reference books, word and math games, and puzzles. On the wall are two cork boards at either end. The one on the right is our "Missions" board. Here we have a photo of our sponsor child, a map of Africa, and photos of missionaries we pray for.
So, at least half of the room is done. I'm waiting for my table to be delivered. It'll go on the other side of the room under the picture window. I can't wait! Right now I have little desks that my 8 and 6 yo have outgrown :( I'm giving them to a friend who has twin 4 yo girls. Just picturing them sitting at those little desks together makes me giggle!
Can't wait to show you the rest!
