That worked well for us, but it did take some planning because unless we were in our "school room" we had to plan ahead to get the right materials and books. All in all, not that big of a hassle.
As the school year wound down and summer rolled in, I started to think that I wanted a more dedicated space for school. I wanted a clutter free, organized space (I'm an organization freak). I live by the motto "Everything has a place and everything in its place". But the truth is, we just don't have that much space. I've seen pictures of other homeschoolers' "school" rooms and I must admit I feel jealous of the spacious, organized spaces they have. These rooms are so beautiful, full of shelves and books neatly organized on them. Bins and boxes for everything you can think of.
What I've realized is I have the space I need and I'm making the space work for us. It may not always be very organized but it does the job. The other thing I've realized is that I don't want to recreate a school environment in my home. I love being able to "do school" wherever we please. So as the new school year approaches, I have embraced the space we have and the flexibility to school anywhere.
Here are some pictures of our home school room.

|We have some of our books displayed and a caddy that holds pens, pencils, erasers, etc.|
|This is an index card box for our Book Club and Writer's Workshop. It has genres, writing prompts and techniques we will be studying and using.|
|Our Lego table is in our school room because Buttercup uses it a lot and we also do Lego challenges as part of school.|
Happy Homeschooling Adventures!!
