When my oldest daughter was four, she attended our local public preschool. That first year was our only REAL experience with public school. I remember NOT being very impressed. One reason was because every quarter the kids were out of school for a random day. The reason? Teacher in-service days. I rolled my eyes when I first saw it. To me, it seemed like a wasted day and a pain for parents who worked outside the home.
We homeschooled for 3 years before we had a designated homeschool room. So, I am aware that not everyone has one. Regardless of whether or not you have a dedicated room to homeschooling, I am sure you have space somewhere in your home that houses your homeschool materials. The question is how to organize your homeschool space.
As I looked around my homeschool space I saw books, pencils, crayons, projects that we were working on and of course my children ;) I also saw garbage, empty glue sticks, craft supplies, and clutter strewn throughout the room.
We are at that point in our homeschool where many of us are about half way done. We have hit the point where quite frankly we know whether we have happy homeschoolers, or if we are just floating along!
