We have home schooled for three years now and I believe that we have found our "groove". I started off with the drawer system which we still use every day and it is WONDERFUL! The picture that I took was from when we first started. I have since bought another one and labeled them for each subject so that he doesn't have to open each drawer to see what he needs.
|Ignore the messiness behind the wonderful drawer system!|
These baskets hold my teachers manuals and various things that I have to have in order to teach!
I also took our old china hutch and made it into craft storage!
I just took cheap old fashioned candy jars and put crayons, markers, paints etc in them so that they are still pretty to look at. I apologize for not getting clearer photographs. YOu see, I'm really trying to get a new camera for Christmas....lets see if it works???
Last but not least...the lunch idea has been the greatest thing ever. I took it a step further and bagged up all chips, teddy grahams, all fruit, and have them in various baggies and stored according to their need. BOTH of my kids loved it...and it worked super duper fabulous. Not only did I know for sure what went in their mouths but no produce went to waste!! YEAH!
Before I forget....this summer I designated a place in our kitchen for a chalkboard wall....it has been wonderful! My E has not gone a DAY without writing on it!
Happy School Year Everyone!
