The School Room

Ever since we started home schooling, I've lusted after a school room. I just thought it would be nice to have an area where the school stuff can be contained, and somewhere for them to have a quiet place to concentrate.

A month or so ago Cora announced that she wanted to move into Calvin's room so we could have a school room. So we gave it a trial and it seems to be working out so far. The school room is still a work in progress - there's only so much we can do because we can't decorate. But I've got a couch to go in there, that's currently in the conservatory, and once that's in we can put things in their final place and I'll share some pictures. We made a family tree to go up on the wall, and there are posters that can be used with whiteboard markers. I want to collect more of those because the kids love them! They each have a desk as well. It feels all a bit cluttered and messy at the moment but I want to spend a day just organising and sorting it out. Then the couch can go into it.

If you have a school room, what's your favourite feature about it? If you could change something, what would it be?


  1. I love it being on the main level, I love our big window, and I love our "art line" (clothes line hung up for art projects and the like to hang with clothes pins). I don't like that my room doesn't have any doors, and the kids like to go in while we aren't schooling and use up our supplies. Drives me nutty.

  2. We're hopeful of having a room to ourselves to live in (a caravan), so a school room is a bit ambitious for us!
