Time to learn – School room

©MandyLynne schoolroom

I have been thinking alot lately about creating an environment of learning in my home.
From the games we play, to the books we read, and music we listen to.
I am trying to be more intentional about our time, and make it as educational &  fun as possible.
We changed things up a little in our schoolroom.
Creating a corner for reading, a music station, and a table for creative projects.
We love spending time here!

Geography games.. there are so many ways to be creative with this!


If you are a blog reader and have good ideas about teaching & learning techniques, I would love to hear about it!

    I Just LOVE your art! I bought some of your pieces through Target last year and was thrilled to find you at Etsy. I too am a baby Etsy seller and love all things vintage.

    When I homeschooled my younger children we loved library days where we filled up laundry baskets filled to the rim with books from many categories: a biography, a country, a craft, a fine art book, fiction and fun. We were always amazed how the nonfiction books became favorites.
    Also, lapbooks are a great way to be creative. Add timelines, maps, quotes, character sketches, vocabulary, settings, photos, captions, biographies… I used manila file folders; kids decorated the front cover with topic pictures or illustrations. The inside had the above details to show mastery.

    I’m just starting to homeschool my preschoooler after teaching 4K at a private preschool. I’ve got so many ideas but nothing done yet. So far I like the blog “Confessions of a Homeschooler”.

    I love the fabric letters. Please share how you made them stick to the chalkboard… I’d love to know!

    Hi, Thank you for sharing! I took a photo down.. with the letters laying flat on the chalk board. They do not stick.

    Could you provide me some information about your large beanbag? I’ve been trying to find instructions to make one like it. Thank you!

    Your room is beautiful. I dream of the day I can have a separate school room. I think that the fabric letters are my favorite part. If not that, it’s the Dick and Jane (?) photo hanging from the hanger. Or maybe it’s all the globes or the little record player or…. :) Thank you for sharing these. I love seeing how others have their learning spaces set up.
