I’m so excited about participating in iHomeschool Network’s “Not” Back to School Blog Hop!
Last week I showed you our preschool homeschool curriculum for 2012-2013. This week’s theme is to show off schoolrooms!
We don’t have a schoolroom. Our home just isn’t big enough for one. That’s okay, though! we do school all over the house.
One of the most often used areas in our home is the dining room table. The kids do their coloring and painting here and Bug does his worksheets at this table. It’s where we sit to have breakfast and read our Bible story, too.The Fisher Price Space Saver high chairs have been well worth the investment. The kids can use them as either a high chair or booster seat. My almost four year old still uses his, but it’s going to have to get passed down to baby brother before long!
We have a cabinet also located in the kitchen that holds the play kitchen food. It also holds a container that I will place our calendar supplies and flashcards in. The Leapfrog laptops and Bug’s camera are also in this cabinet. The shelf above the cabinet holds my cookbooks.
I keep the workbooks, coloring books, and supplies we use regularly on top of the fridge to keep them out of reach of little hands. I saw on Stacy Makes Cents‘ facebook page that you could use an old dish rack to organize these sorts of materials, so that’s what I did! They are easy to find now!
The living room is the place where we do a lot of reading and playing. Two shelves in the entertainment center hold the books we are currently reading as well as some puzzles. Some toys are also stored in the living room.
Our playground is our yard. The kids have about three acres of mostly wooded area to explore. This land still needs a lot of work, but in the meantime there is no shortage of rocks for the kids to play with!
