setting up a school room : share pictures if you have them!

Postby oceandaughter » Tue Jun 05, 2007 5:24 pm

We are pretty relaxed homeschoolers (somewhere in between unschooling and the Well Trained Mind) but we would like to set up a classroom/art studio/ playroom in this former (large) rectangular shaped laundry room. The washer and dryer are out of there now. We have four desks from the Salvation Army that I think were originally in the local public schools that I plan on arranging so that it is like a big table. (Does that make sense?) I also plan on painting one of the walls with chalkboard paint (the shorter end of the rectangle) and putting a tv and futon in there. (It will also be my partner's sound room to show off to buddies from work or whatever.) I will put my massive collection of children's books and nonfiction books in there as well. (I have a bit of a book habit.) I would like to make it as baby proof as possible also.

So, I'm looking for inspiration. What is a must have for y'all? I know the basics: globe, maps, art supplies, books. But what are must haves and can you give me any organization tips.

Pictures of your own school room would be cool, too.

Here are some pics of ours. We have a different table now and an extra bookcase but the set up is still pretty much the same.

To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.
