I have chosen my starting date for the upcoming school year (and no, we are NOT through reading our Sonlight books yet, but we will be very soon!).
My list of things I want to accomplish both home and homeschool related is ever growing. I sometimes ponder the idea of schooling year round, but then I remember how invigorating an extended summer break can be. Even if it is for only 4-5 weeks, and even if we are still reading the previous year's read alouds. (I read aloud to my children all year long, whether we are officially doing school or not). I need that mental break between the ending of one year's curriculum and beginning the next.
So, during this year's short break I want to re-do my schoolroom. I am not planning on repainting or anything major like that, but just a small re-do. I would like to rearrange the furniture. I definitely need to clean out my closets. I have a "paper" cabinet where I keep all of our paper and various notebooks and school supplies. I also have a small closet that is half full of Fisher Price Little People. It is time to pack up the Little People and use that space for other things. And then there is my large walk in closet with floor to ceiling shelves. I think that half of the stuff on those shelves could be stored too. Since my youngest is now 6, a lot of the items in that closet are items that he has outgrown. Storing them would give me more room for supplies and books that we are currently using.
I have been looking online a little bit for inspiration and ideas. Do you have pictures of your schoolroom or learning space? Do you have some neat ideas for storage and organization of school supplies and books?
If so, please consider leaving a comment with a link to your great ideas or ideas that you have found on other websites that you would like to share.
I welcome your suggestions!
