According to the Not Back-To-School Blog hop calendar, this is the week we share our homeschool spaces! I was really hoping I’d have all my stuff organized and pretty to show off, but of course, I do not. I have made progress though.
Remember this picture? I shared this picture of my homeschool room mess. It happens at the end of every year when I’m trying to tie up all the loose ends and curriculum projects. Ok, it can happen in the middle of the year too.
See, it’s slightly cleaner. 🙂 The white table has mostly organizers on it, which will be cleared off this week. Many of the items that aren’t put away are waiting for their new home once I make it to IKEA. I will be getting another bookcase and some other organizational helps.
This year I set up 3 computer stations in our room. Last year the kids were able to work in various places around the house. That didn’t work very well. Certain children couldn’t stay on task. The older kids can work in here, and if they need more space to spread out, they can work at the white table (once I get it cleaned off.)
Under each desk is a crate. Each child is color-coded so that I can keep everything straight. We are using these crates as modified workbox systems.
This is the space that I have been working on. This was a bedroom. We set up some bunk-beds and moved certain children together and now I have a preschool room! I painted everything and am working on getting things set up in here. Next week the closet will have a built in desk (which will most likely be used by one of my older children and for projects.) The fabric wall is a bulletin board. I stapled grey sheets over it (it was ugly brown.) The pink lamp will go and most of the accents will be white, mustard, and neutral colors.
The other half of the room will be my little girls’ play space. I still have things to set up and organize, but right now they have all their play kitchen supplies stored in that white bookshelf. Right at the bottom of the picture are two grey ottomans. One stores doll clothes and the other stores play clothes.
So this is a glimpse of my homeschool room(s) in progress. I really can’t wait to get it organized and put together how I’d like. This most likely will be a year-long project, but I will post updates when I have something cool to share.
What is one tip that you could give me for keeping a room organized during the year?
