Thanks to Confessions of a Homeschooler's "Letter of the Week" preschool curriculum and a trip to Hobby Lobby (and some orders from Amazon.com, of course), I managed to convert my formal dining room into a classroom:
I have baskets of art supplies on the table, two bulletin boards (one being a weather center and the other is a display for worksheets and artwork).
The alphabet is displayed around the top of the room. The empty wall will be shelving soon. June helped me make the school themed "mobile" on the chandelier.
I used the removable crib side of June's bed as a coloring book/ workbook holder. I also lined the closet door with Dry Erase contact paper.
The other door is a "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" tree I found on Amazon.com. With each letter we complete, we hang it from the tree.
It's bright and colorful and I add to my supplies with each trip to the store. I can ALWAYS find something on clearance that I can use at some point in her homeschool career.
I think it's amazing. When I was little, I wanted to be two things when I grew up: a chef and a teacher. Thanks to God and my husband, I'm able to be both. =)
