Where the Learning Happens

Homeschool Room 1

We don't have a designated homeschool room, so to speak. But I really think it's a blessing, because then my children don't get the feeling that learning happens only in a specific place or room. Learning is always happening. And having the children at the dining room table working while I clean or cook is super helpful for all of us.

We utilize the dining room table for things like writing, math, and projects.

The living room is used for quiet reading and read alouds. As well as audio books. That book shelf next to the couch houses our current books for the year. Books rotate through there often because it's not a super large shelf and most of our books are stored on bookshelves in the basement.

Our home is our center for learning.

So, nice and simple, nothing fancy, but certainly functional.

Below is a break down of the core curriculum for each child. My 3rd and 1st grader are pretty much on the same level, so they will be the only ones using pretty much the exact same curriculum choices.

But, let's start with my 6th grader:

My youngest one, who is barely 3 will be doing a combination of two curriculums also:


It's not unusual for me to add things in throughout the year, so they wouldn't be pictured here because I wouldn't know them now. But something new we're going to try this year is notebooking. My kids tried it a bit over the summer and really enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to digging into learning how to notebook and utilizing Notebooking Pages a lot.
