Many of you may have already seen the pictures of our learning area at the Studio. Since we are homeschoolers our learning always extends outside of this space, as it did when we had a designated classroom area at home (which we still use). I am trying to update what's been popping in our lives before I start sharing about our visions for the upcoming school year. We have changed our perspective on year round homeschooling to "Day by Day Homeschoolers", we are just taking advantage of the flexibility that comes with homeschooling and realizing that each day brings it's own challenges and blessings, and we will seek out the blessings and just do what we can while accepting the challenges.
As you enter ahead you will see the coat rack, and to the left of you is our area where I have dedicated to Cultural materials.
A closer view of some of the shelves that house the art materials.
The Science area.
Our Nature Corner.
The Monarch and Lady Painted Caterpillars have been getting a lot of attention in this area.
The Lego Room which also houses Montessori Sensorial and Math Materials.
The Laptop and I Pads' are also available for use and I encourage the children to use them for researching, photography, video editing and music making.
The Music Room.
Around the corner is the language related activities as well as leading into our Practical Life shelves.
Story telling and Puppet Theater.
There are a lot more Language materials that I didn't take a picture of. As you leave the area you will enter the Sewing and Woodworking area.
We also have a snack area available that will also have more practical life activities available, like baking with the convection oven, and a place to keep the supplies clean after use.
Oh I can't forget to share our ever growing library! We are slowly adding books in so that we can keep this area as organized as possible.
I hope you enjoyed the tour!
