If you are a homeschooler it can be a real challenge to determine how to arrange the rooms and keep it organized. The one area that has really given me a problem are the walls. Hanging things on the wall can be fine when you are trying to teach, but can be a real challenge to get them to blend into the home. As a result I have been able to come up with some simple solutions, which you will find below.
Using picture frames is a great way to keep maps, and posters neat and organized. You can find frames that are different sizes. The first thing you will want to do is measure the posters that you want to use for your home. Once you have the measurements you can go out, and shop for the picture frames. Once you have the frames you can decide how to arrange them in the home. The best area is probably the location where the school work will be done. At first sight the home will look nice, and organized, and it will blend nicely into your home. Maps especially look really nice when placed inside of a large picture frame. You can use it to teach your children, and to decorate your home.
There are so many stores that now sell furniture that will hide all of your kid’s school work, and supplies. I have found small size benches that are cushioned, and have ample storage room. These benches can be matched to your homes décor, and will still give you the school space and storage that you need, and still look like a living room. By having hidden storage you will have fewer items to hang up. Some items can be rolled up, and stored away in the storage bins until needed.
Lap books as mini offices
Many people, who use lap books, also refer to them as mini offices. This is simply due to the fact that you can keep all of the necessary information in the lap books when needed. For example if your child uses a multiplication chart, instead of putting it on the wall you can put it in the lap book. I have found that hole punching the lap books and placing them in a binder works well. The binders can easily be stored on a book shelf. So instead of using the wall space, all that your child needs is properly stored away.
