How do you set up a homeschool space? What does yours look like? Everyone's learning space is going to look a bit different and it may also change as your children get older. You definitely will change the space when your kids are no longer in the preschool to like kinder ages. Some people have enough space to that they can have a dedicated school area but other do not and that is just fine. You do not need a lot of space to get school done. We complete our school day all over the house, in bed, in the living room or dining room. We have gone to the beach and finished school there. One day I hope we are able to turn the garage into a room and then I will have a nice little area just for homeschool. When we did preschool and pre-k I did have a little table set up in the dining room for school but as we got into higher grade I transferred to doing school at a larger table. You do not even need a table to do school a lot of the time our daughter chooses to do school on the floor. And yes I do understand how weird that is but as long as she is doing her school work I honestly do not care where we do school. I do have education posters up on the walls in the dining room since that is where we starting doing school in the beginning and All About Reading came with some really cute posters. I also hang up their artwork all around the house. For storing all of our homeschool stuff I do keep it in the dining room. If we ever get a dedicated learning space then I will definitely take pictures to show how I set it all up. Let us know how you have your school space set up.
I recently posted on social media the reviews that my daughter did. They were for the 1st 6 weeks of our 2nd grade year. I got asked a lot about them. How did I make them? How did your daughter remember all of this? I also got comments that it is too much, public school does not do that, your history is too involved, etc. So let's start off with how I make a review. For math it is very easy I make a list of everything she learned. On the last week of that 6 or 12 week any math she does that is on that list counts towards the review. Anything on the list that is not done during the week I give her a few problems on each. Because I want to make sure that she has understood the concepts I make the problems hard. If they are too easy there is no way for me to know if she really understands or if she can just do easy problems. For history I make questions based off what I have read from the textbook. I pull out the key information. We also do social studies and geography. I make questi
