Great Homeschool Organization and Storage Ideas

It has been a couple years since we have shared what our homeschool room looks like. The reason for this is that, even though we have an area in our basement that we can devote to a school room, we never use it. At this time the kids sit at the kitchen table or on the couch. Serena does school up in her room, away from the noise of us teaching younger ones using hands on methods. Since we decided to no longer do school in our school room, it has since then turned into a homeschool storage … [Read more...]

After seeing her post I decided that I was going to change the way I planned on storing my themed materials and store them similar to … [Read more...]

Homeschool Organization Bliss

This past weekend I spent quite a bit of time down stairs reorganizing a lot of our school stuff.  Homeschool organization and keeping track of everything we have with 6 kids, ages ranging from 2 all the way up to 13, and after 6 years of homeschooling can be quite challenging. I have changed the way we store our school things many times, but I have to say I think it will stay this way for a while it is so nice to have everything stored in 1 room! I figured I would share my OCD storage with you … [Read more...]
