I've been reorganizing the homeschool room in preparation for our next school year. I got rid of the K-cup machine, which we hadn't used it probably 6 months, and cleared a place in the kitchen for the microwave. Those two changes freed up an entire shelf to use for homeschooling!
I bought another 5 paper drawers and stacked them on the shelf. As you can see, each drawer has a label to help us all find what we need. On the left side, I numbered the drawers 1-6, because these will be our "work boxes" for each week's theme. Each drawer will contain an activity or two for our school time that the kids will do at the table.
The next drawer will hold our books for each theme- or at least the ones that will fit.
The bottom middle drawer is for Dragonfly's science notebook and school supplies (see the Science Girl post for more information).
So that Skimmer doesn't feel left out, I've given him a drawer for his supplies. I'm calling his composition book a "Scribble Journal."
There are two empty drawers right now, but I'm sure they'll be
filled before the year is over.
The next two drawers have my things in them. One is for school supplies: my scissors, glue, extra pencils, the staples, etc. The other drawer has our calendar board pieces, the sign language alphabet cards, and our build-a-letter pieces.
The girl on the picture is holding an ink pad and stamp- this is the drawer where I'm storing our letter stamps and any other random ones we've collected.
My last labeled drawer is for "math stuff." The main thing in
this drawer is our spindles for counting. I'd like to add math
beads one day (like this).
