I have had the most fun preparing for the school year. This will be our first year homeschooling and if you are interested in why, then read this post. In the next week, I will be sharing our curriculum choices and more on how I
over prepared for the up coming year. I was fortunate to have an office we could easily turn into our main learning space. I really anticipate schoolwork happening all over the house, but at least everything is organized and all in one place. If you want to see my office space before, you can check it out here.
The timeline, I purchased here. The lined up pictures under it are my American history figures that correspond with my history curriculum (Hearts of Dakota, Bigger Hearts for His Glory) which I found on, The Monarch Room. The rolling file cart, is solely dedicated to homeschool papers.
I put all my teachers manuals and everyday books we will be using in this blue caddy from IKEA. I had it shipped, so I didn't have to drive 3 hours to my nearest store. I can easily move it from room to room and all the books the boys will be reading this year are organized by week and all together! Yay, no searching for items last minute or worrying about late fees at the library.
The colorful scrappy bunting is from The Pleated Poppy. And my sweet little embroidered sampler can be purchased at the most adorable shop, The Hope Homemade, they have the cutest stamped necklaces too.
On the wall, lined up, is a new chore management system I am trying. I am doing things a little different, then the book suggests, but the main idea comes from the book, Managers Of Their Chores. The striped bins I purchased from Pottery Barn, many years ago. I found the printables at random places online.
Well, that's it! We are starting school in a couple weeks. I hope all my planning helps things get off to a smooth start. If you are interested in seeing our curriculum click here.
