We have been homeschooling for 2 months now, and have made a few changes to our home. I work from home already and have adapted my office into a joint office / homeschool room for Freddie.

We have decided to follow a fairly structured routine, so this works best for us. There is absolutely no requirement to have an office if you home educate and this can be done just as well from a dining table or a small desk in the bedroom.

If you love shopping on Amazon, check out my Amazon storefront for more ideas.

Homeschool Room Ideas

Motivational Posters

We have 2 motivational posters on the wall, one saying “if you can dream it you can do it, and the other saying “don’t forget to be awesome”. These were both from a great company called Edu Print Plus and they do lots of others. They are a great reminder that you can achieve anything if you put your mind to it.

Map of the World

We absolutely love travelling and have taken Freddie to New YorkNaples and Orlando in America, Jamaica and Mauritius along with various holidays in Europe so a map of the world is a must for us.

If you also homeschool check out my list of over 80 educational online resources.

Office Furniture

We absolutely love a bit of cube storage! I mean who doesn’t! We have a new modern house and this although cheap, works really well. They are multi functional as we use it as a book shelf, for storing craft supplies and science equipment. If however you prefer a more traditional home office furniture there are plenty of online companies.

Cork Board

This idea was actually taken from a home education mummy I am friends with, and it looked so great I copied it! We got the cork board from Amazon and have glued it to the wall (I know, I must be mad!).

It is a great visual way for Freddie to see the topic we are currently working on. In this case we had just started looking at Mauritius (as that is where we went on holiday).

Seating Area

I added a few colourful cushions on the floor so if he wants to read in the day (although he normally tends to just read at bedtime) it is somewhere comfy for him to sit. Freddie absolutely loves reading and is something we have always encouraged.

Desk

We added a cheap desk and chair from Ikea opposite my desk so we could work together.

White Board and Pens

If you have watched the film Gifted you will know what the Trachtenberg method is, and I am hoping to try and teach it to Freddie. His favourite subject is Maths, so wish me luck!!!

    Timeshares in Orlando are a dime a dozen, so if you’d like to sell Orange Lake timeshare in Orlando, you’re going to need the help of a licensed broker. Timeshares for sale on the secondary market are difficult to sell without a firm specialized in timeshare resale.
