The other classrooms always cooler...

I know that as home schoolers we are always interested in what other home schoolers do. How they handle schedule, curriculums, discipline, incentives, etc. I also know we are intensely interested in each others actual classroom setups. At least I am. So I thought I'd give you all a little tour of my dining room/ home school room/ art class room. As the sign says, welcome...Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket This is my entryway.

This is my fall themed bulletin board in my window, because I do not have any more room on my walls for a bulletin board.

As you can see, I am big on posters. Ryan cam to me one day when he was still four and said, "Mommy, three plus three is six." He had been studying one of my wall charts on his own.

I hope you have enjoyed the tour. I will feel extremely blessed if it gave you any ideas. Someday I may have a dedicated room just for school, but for now both I and the rooms in my house are into multitasking.

Looks like a great place to learn. Your are doing an excellent job!

I'm still putting my space together but we have the alphabet up and numbers. We have an easel and a white board. I have a map to hang. I am going to put up a big french memory board instead of a cork board so the baby won't find tacks to swallow.
