This year we have the following grades - first, fifth, seventh, ninth and eleventh.
To start I first have to pull apart and go through all of the materials that we currently have and organize and purge them.
My father scooped up this wonderful wooden unit for us that was left on the side of the road for the taking in Massachusetts and brought it up with him on his last visit.
(all of these pictures were taken before I tackled this...)
This will be the main storage unit for each of the children's core materials with each child having a shelf.
While going through everything, I moved this big white shelf upstairs and this shelf from the living room to the upstairs hallway as well.
Now the upstairs hall is our "library". The large white shelf is for the nonfiction books and I have arranged them by history, poetry, arts/crafts/music, and science. One shelf is picture books and the third is fiction with one shelf for my reference books (spiritual/homeschooling/homemaking).
This is the start and now I am seeking and praying for guidance as I plan their course of studies over the next two weeks.
Warm wishes, Tonya
