We don’t have a dedicated homeschool classroom. We have 1600 square feet, four bedrooms, no basement, and eight people in our home. 300 square feet of this home is a hallway… That’s a tight fit!
Since we don’t have a dedicated classroom, we maximize the space we do have. We study at the kitchen table, cuddle on the sofa for lessons, and store our materials in a school cabinet (four shelves with doors) that fits nicely in the kitchen.
We have a separate office full of bookshelves for our extra books and of course, the precious copier/printer.
I like to say that the world is our classroom. My children spend hours each day outside exploring with friends. We hike together as a family frequently, and enjoy tide pools, aquariums, museums and other field trips on a monthly basis. Our classroom doesn’t look anything like a real classroom, but don’t be fooled. Learning is taking place here every single day!
