When I was home schooling, I tried to give our "classroom" the look and feel of an authentic classroom.
I guess part of the reason was that I didn't want my kids to feel so "different" from their non-home-schooling friends. And the other part was because it was just plain fun!
I had a few things to make our home school feel like a classroom; I had a blackboard and a giant calendar and world map. And I had the alphabet in big fun letters across the wall. One of my home schooling friends even had individual desks for her two kids.
Stacks and Stacks has a new section called Classroom & Educational.
Hmmm…designing home school classrooms, now that would be a fun consulting job to have.
What kinds of things do you home schoolers out there use to make your space special? Submit a picture and I'll post it!
