We had a massive toy purge and reorganised our main learning space, yay! Just in time for school to start back on monday. So here's what it looked like when we emptied EVERYTHING out ...
and here's what it looks like now.
School supplies and curricula are on the Ikea shelving unit. Dressups are all hung nicely on the clothes rack. Thanks D for this great idea!
Some bigger extras that i couldn't find a better home for.
LOVE the Ikea Trofast frames housing cars, threading 'stuff', trio, little people, playdough 'stuff' and duplo. Smaller unit to the right housing baby doll clothes, Possum's toys, train set and doll house 'stuff'. Probably need to move the world map and multiplication charts a bit higher on the wall now.
Finally the top of this sideboard looks neat. Mostly taken up with books, the CD player, the mouse house and a ready supply of paper and pencils in the draw units. The crate with wheels at the end is our new library crate.
Our workboxes all loaded ready to go, science in a nutshell kits to the left and ontop of the Trofast frames are out BUILD materials.
You might be wondering about the desks. We usually school on the kitchen table which is just on the other side of the half wall where the workboses are. Although i was talking with Rusty this evening about getting a large table that we can all sit around so that we don't have to pack away at mealtimes. We will see what happens there.
We are all really looking forward to getting started with school this year. Just a few more things to finish organising tomorrow and we will be back to our full schedule on Monday! We have really enjoyed schooling 'lite' over the summer.
