I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t ridiculously excited to put a homeschool room together. And also if I said I wasn’t jumping out of my skin to share it with you!
When I was an elementary school teacher, putting my classroom together was one of my absolute favorite things. I’d spend time coming up with a theme, and then either shopping for or creating my own decorations to keep the theme and make the classroom a fun and welcoming place. This year? I got to do that for my own daughter!
I didn’t pick a theme, since we’re just starting preschool, and our homeschool room is also our playroom/TV room, but I spent quite a bit of time figuring out the things we’d need to make school fun and exciting! Here’s the final result:
The basic area holds the bookshelf where we keep the curriculum, the table where we work, and the couch where we read together. Those awesome IKEA buckets hold all our our crayons, pencils, scissors, etc., and my lesson planner. And the top of the room is decorated with my favorite ABC Scripture Cards! It’s a fun place to work and play!
Here’s a close-up of the work space. I absolutely LOVE the table, rod, & buckets from IKEA! And you can see my homeschool planner tucked into the long bucket.
I’m basically Erin Condren’s biggest fan, so grabbing her lesson planner was a no-brainer for me! I love how colorful it is, and how I have the monthly calendars to plan our trips as well as the weekly spread for the daily lesson plans.
Behind the couch, we’ve got a simple calendar wall, with a calendar, days of the week, months of the year, a season chart and a weather chart.
Next to the calendar, we have our whiteboard with our daily routine. The routine helps us stay on track, and helps the day go more smoothly because Emily can easily see what’s coming next. (This printable coming soon!)
And there you have it! It’s small, and it’s tucked right into our family room area, but it’s perfect for us. Do you homeschool? I’d love to hear from you! Share in the comments below, and include a link to your homeschool room, if you have a post or pictures!
