Tour Our School Room & Link Up With Me!

Hello! Welcome to our school room and Link Up!
I'm just going to take you around the room as I teach my little ones today.
I don't have anything fancy and nothing has been professionally designed. Over the years I have accumulated pieces of furniture that I have adopted into our school room and they work. Everything in here has a function and serves it's purpose.
These are my shelves that hold all my teaching supplies.
I keep it simple :)

This is where two of my children are busy doing their school work. I am using Horizons from Alpha & Omega Publications to teach them this year. I like it so far. We are half way through this curriculum and I plan on using it with my 4 year old next year as well.

I put up this screen so that Jared could focus on his school work. Bland walls and a cubical setting help keep his mind from wandering.

I store my oldest boy's curriculum underneath my bakers rack. They have been using LIFEPACs from Alpha & Omega Publications for years now. It's challenging and has Bible throughout the lessons which is a plus!

Joel, has started practicing writing his b's :) He also uses LIFEPAC from Alpha & Omega Publications but I prefer Horizons for his age. It has brighter colors and a simple layout. I purchased his curriculum way before I knew about Horizons so we are using it to save on cash ;)
Counting chips, fries, hot dogs and fruits.

Grouping foods into categories.

Playing a game of grocery store :)

Browsing the aisles...

Checking out

Clean up on aisle #9

The kids call this "Jorja Money" after my daughter Jorja's name ;)
She loves money lol

Work trays hold completed and uncompleted work from my two eldest boys.

This is another work space for one of my sons. The chalk board is also a dry erase board or "white board" on the other side. As you can see I love maps! I have two sets. One is for the younger children and this set is for the older.
So that's it! That's the tour. I hope you enjoyed it.

To link up with me just click on the little blue frog underneath this post. Copy and paste the URL of the post you want to enter and there you have it :)
I can't wait to see your homeschooling space and any posts having to do with homeschooling, homemaking, photography, devotionals, before & afters, parenting, marriage, vintage, really whatever you'd like to link is fine :) I have no preferences just keep it clean ;)
