Schoolroom Tour

We school in our dining room for all sit down work. We often read on the sofa or the bed, and do lots of projects off the floor.

Here is in pictures how I arrange and organize all our school stuff.



So, here we have our table, double-sided easel and different boards.



This bookshelf has on top our curriculum and boxes for our version of the workbox system (I pull them for them when we start school every morning).

The rest of the shelves have some of our school supplies and games.  



It all need restocking, I have not gone shopping for back-to school yet.



This bookshelf has more school supplies on the top shelf, under are other homeschool material that we do not use but might take out from time to time. At the bottom is their lego stuff and puzzles.


Here we have our computer and paper station (this is also where I work and blog). Under  the small table , in the basket, is my home binder and the TOG binder. On the table are our papers and some folders.


I also have 2 crates for our library books, one will be dedicated to TOG books and the other for the pleasure books.

That's about it for our schoolroom tour. Otherwise we've  got books all over the house and other boards around as well.

Update: This post is now linked up to the Home Grown Families Back-to-School check-up and the Not - Back -to - school Blog hop @ Heart of the Matter Online.
