This summer my big project was revamping our school room a bit. This is what our room looked like last year. The biggest difference is that we got rid of the big and bulky armoire. I also decided to stop using workboxes for the older children. The workboxes didn’t seem to be serving the intended purpose anymore and just became a dumping ground for their stuff.
I’m happy with the way our new shelves look. A bit more streamlined than what we had before, although I think I might miss being able to put items away behind closed doors and away from little hands.
I still have the chalk board with the candy jars up on top for supply storage. The jars have worked out great. I can see what’s in them easily and little fingers can’t reach!
I use gutter shelves for the Five in a Row books that we have coming up.
I love to use magazine holders to help keep things more organized. Here are our Five in a Row books that I’m not currently using as well as the Five in a Row cookbook and a folder that I use to keep some printables handy.
My spot for some of our history books, seasonal books, nature books, poetry and other extra resources.
We don’t technically do school in this room, we use the kitchen table and the couch, but I do like having a dedicated area to corral all of our materials. It helps to keep us more organized and a wee bit more efficient.
Hope you have a great year!
