Homeschooling Room Tour for 2014
“Receive the children with reverence, educate them with love, let them go forth in freedom.” – Rudolf Steiner
This is our comfy reading corner. The kids LOVE to lay here and read. I keep a basket of Toddler books on the floor for Ms. Bell to easily get to. We also have a new Pottery Barn Kids anywhere chair to sit in. If you are wondering about the posters and maps above you can get all of the information about them here.
A child size table is so important to any schooling or play room. This is the Large Caroline table from Pottery Barn Kids, however I have seen many great quality wood tables from some of my favorite stores.
It is so important to have good quality, natural, open ended toys. Let their imaginations flourish while they build and play. The toys you see here were made by me.
We love our baby dolls!!! These are some of the baby dolls in our house.Waldorf doll makers put such heart into making their dolls with quality natural materials, and they each have their own dolly personality. Perfect for those of us that love dolly play. The sweetest baby doll of them all is the one on the right, she’s mine.
These are things you’ll see around our room. First is our little teacup Yorkie Peanut, he’s always nearby. The fabulous Barn you see here was the big Christmas gift of the year, and it’s also from Elves & Angels . As you can probably tell, Elves & Angels is is one of our favorite stores. The Grimms Rainbow and hand kite are also favorites.
The bookcases seen in our room are the Carolina bookcases from Pottery Barn Kids. I love them and if I had more room, I’d probably get more bookcases. I use a lot of baskets to help keep things organized.
I love having a kitchen in our space. The boys have always loved playing store and we incorporate it into our everyday learning and play. Unfortunately they are no longer making this farmers market, however I highly recommend getting an Elves & Angels kitchen. We have their Julianna’s kitchen and love it.
We love nature and I feel it’s very important to bring nature into your learning space. Every month or so I change around our nature table. This is part of our Winter table. You can see some of our other Nature tables here and here.
This is how the left side of the room looks as you are walking in.
