Our new schoolroom!!

Since we decided to homeschool Kindergarten next year, a school room seemed like a logical addition for our home. The front room had been empty since we moved in anyway, so this was a perfect use for the space. The bookshelves hold all the materials we need, plus each boy has his own box for workbooks, pencil boxes and writing notebooks. There's a chalk board, easy reader books, a morning board (that you can't see) to cover things like the weather, bible memory verses, word families and the pledge of allegiance, posters for long/short vowels and the map of the United States, a word wall, a clock and a picnic table. I added some toys to keep Dylan occupied, but I think we're going to have to add the pack-n-play to the mix because all he wants to do is eat their papers and climb on top of the table. I'm loving it so far and have just purchased our curriculum for next year! The most challenging parts so far are keeping Owen and Eli on task and Garrett and Dylan out of the way enough for them to accomplish their work. Life with four under five is busy!
