Our School Room ~ 2011

Our current school room is in our living room. While I like having it central, I do not like having the TV in here! Our goal when we move again (hopefully by Christmas) is that we will be able to have the school room and the TV room separate.


We use an old dining room table and each child has an activity mat to help protect the table and to delineate each space. The table is set up next to my computer. This gives me a "U-shaped" desk area. Under the table is a file cart where I organize all our curriculum for the year and my planner is on the table. Hubby has a desk and a computer to the right of our school room.

Here is a collage of the kiddos hard at work in our school "room":

  1. Love all the pictures of them working! A friend of mine has those mats too. I need to get some of those as our table is very bumpy and chipped up.

  10. A U-shaped desk sounds so functional!  I have a square card table as my desk in our "classroom", but for the most part we spread out in the dining room.

    Your room looks really well-arranged. And I love the photos of all your kids working, especially the teeny guy at the bottom.

  16. I love the idea of using a pad to protect the table - I wish I would have thought of that before, our table is all scratched up now :(

    Hi Kelly! I would never let my kids paint or use glue if it wasn't for those mats!! :)

  18. The mat on the table is a great idea. My kids are always complaining that someone has something in their space.

    Hi Sarah! The mats are a life-saver (the table's, the kid's and mine)! :)
