We are not lucky enough to have a school room, but we are lucky enough to live in a learning environment. We learn anywhere and everywhere. Let me take you on a tour. Beware, I did not clean it for these photos, this is real life baby!
Our Front Room
We love our couch. It is a Sactional. Which really is the coolest couch around. We set it up for movies, discussions, reading parties, and we even build forts out of it.
We also have our computer station in the corner of this room.
I also have a bookshelf that has the current books we are using, along with some others thrown in there. I rotate the books on this shelf every couple of months.
Tyler has a play area here as well.
We keep Tommy’s telescope right here, near our front door for quick set up.
Our Kitchen/Dining Area
We do most of our bookwork/ worksheet/ science/ art at the table.
I also have a kiddie table just right for Katey and Tyler, they do many things there, from eating sometimes, to art, to worksheets, coloring, puzzles, and even sleeping.
We have a island that divides the front room and kitchen. My laptop usually sits on that, and if the kids need to be separated then I send one of them to the counter.
Under the counter is where I store our workboxes.
The kids’ bedrooms are upstairs, they do some reading and such in their rooms. I also have a big storage closet up here, which I am ashamed to show you. I assure you it is on my to do list to clean out and organize that thing.
In my bedroom I have a Lovesac, which the kids love to read on.
My closet is where Tommy works on his models. It is perfect to keep little kids out of.
I also have a smaller coat closet upstairs, in the bottom of it I have a big drawers which is where I store many manipulatives, flashcards, beans, misc. things.
We are a huge outdoors family. We love to learn outside.
The kids have a secret hidden fort back here, can you see it?
We do tons of reading and nature study in these chairs on the lawn.
When we need some shade we move them into the garage.
Well that is the grand tour of our major learning areas.
