Homeschooling Without Borders

In other words, we don't have a dedicated homeschool room and that's OK.

Here are some challenges we have:
  • we're not sure how long we'll be living here
  • we're not allowed to hang anything on the walls
  • our possessions are scattered between this house, my parents' house, Philip's church office, and some closets at church
  • limited space (only 2 bedrooms)
Here's how we're making it work for us (click any collage for larger image):
Each girl (except Miss Lili who doesn't need one yet) has an "office" constructed from folding foam core. This holds needed information and also hides the girls off from each other a bit.

The Expedit and the other black shelf are in the room where our dining table is. (Not exactly a dining room and the room also holds the only door we use to enter the house. We don't call it "The Carnival House" for nothing.)

The couch and the computer are in what we call the living room.

Tigger's bed and all the girls' CDs are in their bedroom (the biggest bedroom in the house). Some day I'll show you how all four girls fit neatly into that one room.

Anyway, that's how it's working so far. No homeschool room? No problem. Or, at least, not many problems. Getting a turn on the computer (wrestling it away from Miss Lili) now that's a problem.

Do you have a room dedicated just to homeschooling?

We are grateful enough right now to have a finished basement as our schoolroom. But in our last house we used the kitchen table and the living room couch as the school room. My girls are entering 8th,4th and 3rd next week.

Wonderful use of space!!! Love, love, love your red couch. And great idea with the triform boards.
