Last week I shared our curriculum with you, and this week I'm sharing our school room with you.
In keeping with my desire for simplicity and a minimalist living space, this set-up is open and free of distractions. I've seen many school rooms that are full of interesting things, posters, maps, centers, desks and much more...but that's not my style. What some call stimulating, I call suffocating. Since this is my home, and our schooling space is part of the house, we keep it simple.
My favorite part of this room is the world map. We take a global approach to our learning and this map is a great focal point for our homeschool room.
Desks and tables are noticeably missing from our school room. We use our kitchen table for any written work that needs to be done. Some days we do all our school work at the kitchen table and other days we spread out on the floor in this room.
I use these carts to store each girl's books. I hope to use the workbox method this year, but we'll see how successful I am with that.
And this bookshelf holds our violins and some of our books.
I'm linking up to the "Not"-Back-to-School blog hop.
