Our homeschooling set-up is constantly changing. Not only has the number of children and books in our homeschool increased exponentially over the years, but we’ve lived in 5 different homes since Ellie started kindergarten (and 3 more before she started school!).
In two of our homes, we were lucky enough to have actual rooms dedicated to nothing but homeschooling. They were small rooms, but it was a nice to have all of the stuff out of the way nonetheless.
Our current home has a very open floor plan and only one living room. School has to be done in the dining room. And our dining room looks kind of like a library. But books are beautiful, so I don’t mind.
I conceded to hanging a small dry erase board on the wall, although I really didn’t want to. When it came down to it, I had to admit that we use it ever day and it has to stay – ugly as it is.
Even though we don’t have a homeschool room, we do have a closet. It contains a very large filing cabinet, a bookshelf full of manipultives, puzzles, and flashcards, 3 art carts, and a few sets of drawers.
