My wonderful Hubby tore out the carpet and replaced it with laminate wood floors and painted over the orange with a nice, neutral color. He built some shelves for all of our school books and put some above my desk for other supplies. I absolutely love this room in my house. It is actually one of my favorite rooms. I stay in it all the time. If the kids can't find me...they always look there first. On with the tour. I hope you enjoy the pictures as much as I do.
Our easel with our school name.
Our book shelf with puzzles (and some of
mommy's cookbooks) and the bulletin board.
Yes, those large apples are covering up
my children's real names. Sorry!!
Our bulletin board up close. Yes, the apples...again.
I just love this poster. This is in our reading corner.
Here are our workboxes and craft cabinet. The workboxes
right now have flashcards, coloring books, crayons, etc. in them.
The cabinet contains some of my craft supplies such as
sewing stuff, scrap booking, etc. and board games. Also,
there is our library book holder for the books we borrow from
A closer look at our library book holder. The
box right next to it is the box we take with us
to the library to keep them safe in.
Here is my desk. It is all organized and ready
for the first day!! There is a small children's desk
right next to it for one on one time with me.
A close up of where the little desk is. The door behind it
is the bathroom.
Here is another book shelf that has our CD player
on it as well as DVD's and other book collections.
Here is our "Masterpieces" wall where I will be hanging all of
the kids artwork. It is also where I have our "days of the week"
posters and our "weather" posters.
Here are their desks that they will be learning a lot of
wonderful things in.
My wonderful book shelves that are in the reading area.
It may look like a mess but it really is organized and labeled.
There are little chairs underneath it for the big boys to sit
Here is a wider view from my desk.
Here is the view from the bookshelves of my desk area.
Shelves above my desk. So purty!!
Well, there you have it. My wonderful classroom that I am so very blessed to have. Jensen Family Academy will be in full swing on Tuesday. I can't wait. I am so excited!! I hope you will stop by again to see how we are doing throughout the school year. I will be doing a weekly (if not more) post about our work throughout the year. The first one will be in a couple of weeks because our first unit is on Creation and it lasts 2 weeks. I will do some progress reports along the way. By the way, we are using My Father's World curriculum and I absolutely love it so far (and I've read the Teacher's Manual like 100 times...LOL!). See you soon!!
