This is where we do school. It's part of our family/bonus room. Next to my desk is my son's desk. It's nice to have him right there if he has a question. Sometimes he likes to sit on the couch, though. We also do all of our read-alouds together on the couch.
This little area is the dormer. It's where we keep all the school supplies and books, and whatever else we need. It's sort of a room within a room. The bookshelf isn't as organized as I would like it to be, but it's working for now. I only keep books on it that we're using this year. We have several bookshelves in another room full of all our other books. It helps me to keep them separate so I don't get overwhelmed or sidetracked.
There's also a world map and lots of storage containers. I love storage containers. I've been reading about using workboxes for homeschooling lately & am still getting mine set up & figuring it out. I really like the idea & am hoping it will work out for us. We also keep all the arts & crafts supplies in the drawers so that everything we need is right there.....
..... so that Big J can get busy creating his next masterpiece.
