My School Room Is Ready

Well I finally got my schoolroom together and organized for the new year! It usually takes all summer. I go through every little thing to see what we still can use what we can't and all that. So standing in my doorway this is what you will see. I just walked around the room taking pictures of everything.

When you turn the corner after walking in you see all this nature type stuff. The majority of the things the kids have collected over the years except for the rocks. The rocks which grew to a BIG collection have found there new homes outside in the fairy gardens. Now if you look past that you see another room that looks kind of schoolish. It is an extra little room, I believe it is suppose to be a dining room maybe since there is a built in china cabinet but we use it for something else. More on that later. 

These are the planets Fox hung for me because apparently every school room needs planets hanging from the ceiling. And as always our Magic School Bus. That school bus has hung in every school room they have ever had. They are big lovers of The Magic School Bus and will still even watch the movies!

So a bit further in...

You will see this. I just realized how filthy my windows are but I cannot keep the kids from touching them so I gave up a long time ago! This area is more nature science type stuff. All about animals, space, the ocean, rocks, volcanoes and of course bugs. Fox will always be BUG BOY!!!! The pizza box in the window is actually a solar oven not a dirty did not throw away box!

Little close up. They still have Lakeshore Learnings boxes of bugs, frogs, lizards and many other things. These are things the kids will never let me get rid of. There are also rock and mineral sets.

This little cubby is ocean on top and space on the bottom! My kids love both!

On to the TV area. The shelves have various pieces of pottery Skyler has made over the years. I have had to actually pack some away because there was so much. I believe some of my older daughter Devlin has some of her pieces up there as well. There are music instruments, a basket of educational type movies too. 

Now moving on over you see mostly art and writing type items. There are books about art, artists, music and musicians. There are poetry books and writer help type books as well. Of course there is more pottery too! 

In the baskets there are different art prints and drawing type books too. 

Moving on over there are more science type things and math. Behind that big body book are bunches of math books.

Those drawers house bunches of math and science stuff!

My huge shelf!! Books books and more books!!! Yes many many many science kits as well. I may have an addiction....

A few years ago we did Magic School based all around Harry Potter. It took forever collecting these books and making others so they will most likely never leave either. 

The monster book is my favorite book! I printed the whole monster book from the Harry Potter yahoo group for this!

Moving on, we get to geography. It has well, all things geography! 

This cool little basket has books about games around the world,dancing and even fables. I really like this little basket!

I have many books about Christmas around the world. These however are Christmas in the U.S.A. books. All kinds of books based on different states. 

These are my once beautiful continent boxes. Sadly they became a cats scratching post and I have yet to replace them. They are packed with all kinds of odds and ends from other continents. We have collected this type of stuff for years since my oldest was tiny.

Now onto that other little room. My desk lives here as well as my computer. The coke box is my dogs toy box. 

The kids workboxes live here as well. 

Over to the side you have the little kid area. I no longer have little kids myself but my adopted daughter Hannah has a step-daughter who is here every other week. So of course she needs a spot of her own as well!!

Now remember that built in china cabinet I mentioned? Well we use it as an art/game cabinet! The top has all the art stuff and below are all the games!

This is the kiddos movie cabinet but the top are where all my Dr. Seuss characters live. I have collected these for a long time as well. 

This is my basket! It has all my books and my Thinking Tree Journals in it. My pens, markers and crayons stay in this basket and they are not to ever be used by anyone but me!! That is about it for my schoolroom. It is my favorite part of the house!
