This is always a fun time of year. Everyone is still enjoying the fun days of summer, but we are all gearing up for a new school year. I also love getting to check out homeschool rooms and learning what works and what doesn’t for others. Today 12 months of Montessori is back with a peek inside our homeschool room.

I love our homeschool room! It is a place in our house where everyone seems to enjoy spending time in.

This is our natural dramatic play area – Kitchen area and Dress up/Doll Play. I added in a little Montessori practical life with the clothes hanging. The kids love this space! The furniture is from Elves & Angels and we couldn’t be happier with it! Elves & Angels is wonderful! Our Waldorf dolls and dolly dresses are from Dragonfly’s Hollow.

Most of our Lovely kitchen accessories are from Simple Gifts Toys. My wish list keeps growing from her store because everything is so amazing. We also love the Plan Toys food sets.

I love the little things that make up this room.

Right now we are using this huge magnet board which I thought was a really cool idea, but to be honest my kids hardly ever use it. If you do a lot with magnets it’s great! I am switching it out for a chalkboard in the next month. I do love the large clips I found at Michael’s. They are perfect for hanging our artwork. The animal alphabet you see on the door is Little B’s favorite. It is from 1+1+1=1. I moved it higher because Bells was constantly pulling them off. I’ll be moving them back down soon. It’s great to have everything at your child’s eye level.

We love these Eeboo bird cards and they fit in perfectly with our room. We have a lot of Eeboo products incorporated in our homeschooling. For example the storytelling cards, alphabet wall cards, games, and nature journals.

This is a picture of the right side of the room as you are walking in. We don’t have a lot of wall space, but I’ll take the windows and natural light over walls any day.

This summer the kids have been really interested in animals and their love for birds has been around for years. So our Science area reflects their interests.

 I love signs and quotes they are everywhere in our house 🙂 This is the center bookshelf. Most of our puzzles were being used that day that’s why they aren’t in the picture. Bells loves puzzles right now.

A few tips for you to think about if you are setting up a homeschool room:

  •  The colors of the room make a difference. A lot of bold colors might make it harder to concentrate.
  • Make sure everything is safe for children to explore and work in.
  • Does the space flow and accommodate the children’s needs.
  • Try to limit what you put out and switch things throughout the year going with your child’s interests.
  • Ask yourself if the room is provocative and suggestive without limiting engagement?
  • How the materials present should encourage learning.
  • Ask yourself if this is a place that you would love to spend time in.

 I hope you enjoyed the tour 🙂
