The Heart of the Matter Weekly Meme




The heart of the matter has Friday Memes. This week they have a question for us. Where Do You Homeschool? Please feel free to join us! This will be fun and encouraging! Visit THOTM online and add your link!




Grab a cup of coffe or tea, and step into Koinonia Academy!
Welcome to my home/school. *Ü*

For us, we have always done the majority of school at the kitchen/dining room table. We have never had a school room and after 13 years of this, I dont think I would like it. Maybe I would feel different if I had one. For now, I cant imagine it.

We have never had a large home before, although the home we are in is the biggest yet. We have a dining romm/living room/ Kitchen combo. Its a very open floor plan and I can see and be with the kids while doing laundry, dishes, cooking... what ever.... Im just a step away from them.






Below is a link to a short video of RyLee singing her spanish. *Ü* You can see from it the kitchen bar she likes to sit at and do school and then the living room behind her. Los vocales


I have turned our mud room, just off of our dining room into a bit of a school supply/book room. This is where I have the years resources, craft kits, science kits, microscope, books and many other things stored, so I dont have to go for to get something. Neither do the kids.






I have mentioned before how we store our notebooks. We have notebooks and my teachers books in baskets close by and also a bin for the girls textbooks or workbook type books. You can visit that post here A day in the life

You are so organized and do such a wonderful job, I just feel inspired reading your posts. And I love that big smiling picture in your profile.. whenever I see that smiling face commenting on one of my HOTM posts, I light up!

Thanks for being such a source of sunshine!

Have a great weekend!

I think you and I have the same house. LOL. Life happens in the kitchen! I cannot imagine schooling in a little room of in another part of the house. Although I would LOVE to have a place to store all the STUFF. ;-)

We have an open floor plan too, so it works to homeschool in the dining room/living room/kitchen. We have lots and lots of bookshelves also. Homeschoolers can never have enough books! :)

Lisa,
I am glad to see that I am not the only one that does not have a homeschool room.

We homeschool wherever we can.

Blessings,
Karen

Was unable to see the bottom pictures.
We have the open living room/dining room, as well - - it is nice to be able to do the housework and still be only a step or two away at any given time!! : )
Thanks for sharing!
