Our Schoolroom - Not Back-to-School Blog Hop



This month I am participating in the Not Back-to-School Blog Hop over at Heart of the Matter.  This week the theme is school room.  I am so excited to take a peek into everyones schoolroom!!  I already posted about our schoolroom a couple of weeks ago.  It is our den/office that we converted into the schoolroom last spring.   So, here it is...

Here is the desk and computer for the kids.  There is a third desk to the left that I couldn't fit in the picture.  Right now it has a Cricut machine and laminator (love my laminator!!) on it but I will need to find other places for them by next year.  The rug is so cute but kind of a pain because it gets caught up in the chairs.  But it's too cute to remove, right!!  The map is a USA markable map that we got with our Sonlight curriculum.  It has a world map on the other side.  I like that we can use markers that came with it to draw on it throughout the year.  Everything (furniture and storage) is pretty much from IKEA.  I love IKEA!!!

This bookshelf has all of our books for the upcoming year.  Dry erase boards are to the right. And who doesn't want a Darth Vader cup to hold their pencils??  I am definitely going to need more storage next year (with all 3 kids) but this will do for now. 

The bean bag reading nook.  Our dog seems to think this is hers.  It is pretty funny to see a big long Bassett Hound laying on this bean bag.  She makes it work though! 

My desk.  Organized for now ... hopefully will stay that way.  Filing cabinets to keep all the paperwork.  There are two printers because one is the everyday printer and the other is a color/copier printer. 

There are still things that I need to get.  Mainly minor school supplies... pencils, composition books ... I am hoping that I will realize what I need concerning organization as the year goes on.  Less than three weeks until the first day!! :-)

** Update:  I think I have everything that I need to get started now.  Only one week away!!!



I am also linking up to HHH 300x300 Hip Homeschool Hop   8/9/11

  1. First time visitor from THL! Love your blog. I've been admiring your neat and organized classroom! Sigh...One day, mine will be clean enough to share photos! I love the filing cabinet - I'll need to adapt that idea since all of our papers end up in stacks in a box. Also love the bean bag reading nook - I'd like that for my own room :) Nice to meet you!

  2. Thanks for stopping by Carrie! I have to say that I highly doubt my classroom will be this organized and neat in a couple months! This is our first year homeschooling and we aren't starting until August 15th ... Check back next year! :)
