We are very blessed to have a room in our dedicated to school. I created the room at the LAST minute before we started school last year. You can see my post about it here.
I have only modified it slightly since last year, but I'm really excited about the changes. We now have one table and our daily work above it has been modified.
Based on the geography studies we are embarking on this year I added a world map and these great kids from around the world that my mom found for me. You will also see the boards to go with Expedition Earth Studies.
I also added a geography learning area with our globe, puzzles, curriculum, and books from around the world.
My favorite addition is Cricket's new reading area. I got her a bean bag, which we love already, and a book basket. (In this picture you will also see her new lap desk that I got to give her another workspace option).
On the closet doors I put up what will be our Word Wall.
Our supplies have also grown considerably so I have taken over the entire dresser, half of the closet in the room, a new shelf, and re-purposed a cradle into a book bin.
After seeing other people's planning and organization I decided to try a crate folder organization system. I have a folder for each week everything that's planned out is in the folder.
Sadly, we were supposed to start homeschool this week, but I injured my back and haven't been able to do much of anything. I would appreciate any prayers to help us with getting started on our journey, we are both so ready for school!
I am posting this at the "Not" Back to School Blog Hop and I've already really enjoyed looking at everyone else's school spaces.
