Another school year is upon us, along with a whole new school room to organize. We found ourselves in a new home at the start of another school year. We are happy that this tradition ends this year now that we are in our forever home!
This school room was harder for me to organize. We are splitting the space with the big office computer desk that is on the main floor. We also lost a whole wall due to the big fireplace that is in the room. I also didn’t want as much stuff on the wall since this room is going to be used for more than just school. We haven’t had that yet.
I really like the layout of our school room last year. I enjoyed having the kids in a circle formation so that I could easily see their work, we had all of our supplies in the center and I didn’t need to move across the room every 5 seconds when someone had a question. We lost that layout in the new school room. I had to go back to the layout from 2015. Which was okay but I didn’t love it. We could design it that way later on but I feel like it would make the room too small and I’m not sure I want to do that. I am going to play it by ear and see what works for now. We might be doing a few switches as the year goes one to find the perfect layout.
This year is my first year having all 3 doing school officially. Little Lady is doing preschool this year and so I needed to condense and move a lot of things around in order to find space for her supplies.
It was a tricky year to get organized with a move, the new layout and adding a child but I am pleased with how it all turned out. Take a look!
There ya have it! Our school room 2017-2018!
