What does your school room look like????







So, I am a week late but I have decided to join the Not-Back to school Blog Hop over at Heart of the Matter! This week is share what your school room looks like week.

I am very fortunate in that my husband made this school room up for us last summer, and it has been a wonderful blessing for our school days!




First, this is the entry way to our school room, which is part of our finished basement. The double doors are kind of fun! :)




Inside are the girls desks and you can see some shelving and our little computer nook back there which always comes in handy.





This is our newest addition. My husband just hung a new white board for us which will come in handy for math lessons and our new Sequential Spelling lessons as well.




Right off the main school room is our music room. I am a trumpet player by profession, and music is a big part of our lives. Anne Marie, my oldest is really taking to the piano, so we had this one moved down here for her!



I have a nice little sitting and reading corner here in the school room as well.




We have plenty of room for books and you can see we even have our tadopole/frogs in their home on the desk.






There they are....our ongoing science project from last year's life science books....one of them just got front legs yesterday!






When you step back through the doors we have our kids playroom which is great for break time or to keep my 2 year old daughter entertained!


SO, I'm looking forward to seeing what others do with their school space, and to the rest of the Not Back to School Blog Hop.

Ahhh...a dedicated school room ~ that, I must admit, is a desire of mine. You'd think in this big ol' house, I could find a place....perhaps upstairs....someday....

Looks great! (and I'm so happy your tadpoles are finally getting legs!)

I would love to have a basement area for a schoolroom. That is one of my dreams someday. Your room looks great! I hope you have a great school year.

Very Cute! I love it. I am trying not to be jealous as I see all these great school rooms! lol I am now following your blog & look forward to reading more!

Brooke said...

Thanks ladie! I hope you all have good school years too!

Denise - I hear ya...don't get me wrong I LOVE my schoool room, but I have been fighting off some jealousy over some of the rooms out there as well....large spaces and people who are FAR better organizers than me.

Anyhow, nice to get a chance to "meet' some new folks. Looking forward to next weeks school pictures!
