When I thought about what I like to read, I realized I like to see real peoples homes and stuff real people have made and read about real homeschooling. So 'real' is the operative word here. And one post I will always read by a fellow homeschool blogger is one on their schoolroom.
Our schoolroom is far from great, or perfect, but I am thankful for the space that can stay messy, or involved for however long we need it too. And while taking a few pictures of it, I realized it changes each year--evolves to fit our new needs. This year, we added an analog clock, which I read is better for kids to grasp the concept of time, a much needed bookshelf, which now houses our workboxes, and an American flag, which just makes it feel more like a real schoolroom.
And an update on what has been working for us this year:
Right now, my kids love Electric Company, which is on PBS at 7:30 in the morning. They are allowed to come downstairs and do 2 drills (a multiplication/math drill and a grammar drill) at 7. If they are finished in time (they always are), they can watch their show. School happens before breakfast, before I even hit the coffee maker start button. I celebrate this.
What real thing are you celebrating right now?
