While many do not have the space to have a dedicated homeschool room, or many do not want to be confined to a dedicated space, there are many of us who have and love our dedicated homeschool room. If you are not sure if a homeschool room is for you, check out these reasons to have a homeschool room.
Ways to Organize Your Homeschool Room
- Shoe Boxed Sized Storage Containers – These are great for the everyday quick grab things. We have boxes stacked on a book shelf with labels such as stickers, glue/scissors/tape, pencils/pens/erasers, and markers & crayons.
- Book Shelves – We use book shelves not only for the endless amounts of books we have in our homeschool room, but also to stack and store clear labeled bins of smaller supplies that we use on a regular basis.
- Cardboard File Boxes – The cardboard file boxes are sturdy, uniform in size, and inexpensive. We use this to hold things like fabric, yarn, ribbon, foam, paint, and other craft supplies.
- A Hutch with Doors – We have many supplies, kits, etc. Having a hutch with doors allows us to store many things that are uneven and not uniform but still have it look neat and organized in our room.
- Cork Board Strips – We installed cork board strips in open areas on our walls. This allows us to hang posters and projects without damaging the walls in the room.
Having a space that is just for our homeschool clutter has made my daily life so much easier. We can be in the middle of something and just leave it for later because it is in the homeschool room and not in the middle of our kitchen table or living space. But even having a whole room designated to homeschooling, I have still need to keep it organized to be able to fit it all in, have space to work, and have it feel organized instead of overrun.
