* Our School Space *

The second week of the NBTS blog hop is sharing our school space. It is a constant work in progress and has been re-arrange a number of times to suit our needs. Most of the storage space that we have has been stolen recycled from other places in the house, which means our school room is rather organized, the rest of the house, not so much.

Our school space is in our partially finished basement. It needs a fresh coat of paint, the trim work finished and the ceiling tiles put up, but since we farm, our productive months are the summer months, maybe when it turns cold.

This wall is our calendar wall. We have printables from several blogs (I will have to add links later when I can match printables with creators). We have several maps, our bible time line from MFW first grade(barely visible at the very top) and I will be adding a wipe erase board that is also magnetic.

The table with a blue top is actually our game table but it does double duty as a school desk really well. We have Lego games and art supplies on the small set of shelves, lots of science stuff, our globe, magazine type boxes that work as holders for modified work box system. More art supplies in the colorful bins and lots of books below them. The little round table is used for the littles and we also have another small table so the little ones can have their own special places.
Better shot of "big blue" (what the boys call the game table) and the wire cubbies hold games and puzzles. The wall with the big shelving system (thank you hubby) holds school books, school games, more books for reading and the really, really, really messy art supplies are in the top spaces.
More wire cubbies holding an assortment of things and because we have so little wall space we use the doors to display our We Choose Virtues posters.

There are over 500 participants in this blog hop and since I love looking at other schoolers set-ups, I may be busy for awhile.


  1. What a nice schoolroom! You've really maximized space with all that vertical storage. I love the multitasking game table and that it has a nickname! We're constantly rearranging and pulling organizing pieces from other rooms, too.

    Thanks for visiting at Home Schoolroom, best wishes for a great school year!


  2. I love all the shelving! Stopping by from the Hop, thanks for sharing.
