"Not" Back to School Blog Hop: Week 2: School Room Week
Heart of the Matter Online's "Not" Back to School Blog Hop's 2nd week is "School Room Week!"
Just like last year, we are utilizing our split level's convenient "lower den" as our school space. It is big enough for learning space and hanging out space, letting it still have its identity as a "den."
Ready to take a little tour?
The cubby shelf in the corner has items organized according to subjects: Art & music at the top, phonics and reading next, science/history/geography third, and math on the bottom. The totes and baskets hold all of our manipulatives, flash cards, electronic games, and tools (like the microscope).
What isn't pictured is the newly organized "craft cabinets" in the laundry room, closed off just to the right of the entertainment center. I condensed my cleaning products and laundry what-nots and made use of every spare box and tote I could find all over the house. Whenever art projects call or creative inspiration hits, we're now ready.
(Because of the carpet in the school area, most messy art is done outside on the patio or at the dining room table. I don't like cleaning THAT much!)
Thanks for dropping by and seeing our school room!
Take a look at all of the others for more inspiration....there's plenty out there to drool over and give you great ideas!
