Schoolroom photos

We are fortunate to have a study in our home, so it also functions as a schoolroom. When I was teaching several children at home, it was easier to use the kitchen table. We have a hutch/cabinet in the kitchen that held our school supplies.

Now that I’m down to one child at home, the study works well for us. I have a desk and can work at my computer while being available to help Emily when she does her seat work.  We still use the kitchen for art projects and spend lots of time reading on the couch, too!

I think this will be the last year Emily can use this desk! Her finished work goes into the basket at her right.


These are the workboxes we have used for the past 2 years. I’m not sure if we are going to continue with the workbox system or just have her use a checklist this year.


This cabinet/shelf stores the books we are currently using. The striped bin holds games and the maroon bin holds colored pencils and markers.


Yes, we love books! We have more shelves in other rooms, too. The bottom shelf holds toys—this used to be the playroom!


Not Back to School Blog Hop


  1. Oh, the books you can have! This is wonderful. :-)

    I am also on TOS Crew. Nice to meet you!

  2. I am sooooo Jealous ;) Love your "Homeschool room"! Before my family and I decided to take a couple of years and Road school, I tried to create a classroom at home, but like you we tended to use our kitchen table lol! Since we are seeing this Great country of ours in a 37 foot Travel trailer, space is at a premium to say the least.

    Happy Homeschooling,
    Keri :)

  3. Oooh! Oooh! Oooh! BOOKS!!!!! Awesome! You are extremely organized, though. Well done!! I'm SO not there yet.

  4. We have bookshelves all over our house, too. Yours do look very organized.
