Below you see our dining room table being used for Science class. The boys are "playing" with our physics K'nex sets. Our table often looks like this. This is our primary place for doing school.
When the boys are done their workboxes they set them on the floor next to the end of the table where I sit. I look them over, grade them if needed, write anything I need to write in my school log, and then prep the box for the next day.
One of my blogging friends mentioned that everyone was showing their schoolroom as clean as can be and so perfect that it made her jealous. I hope these REAL live photos help with that. This shows the current state of affairs in the end of our school room with the workbox shelves and small whiteboard. The filing cabinet that has a lot of stuff in it. It does not show the boxes and stacks of papers in my room and in the basement that need to be filed. It does show that we have workboxes on the shelves and on the floor a typical thing for our house. Sometimes... horrors... they stay on the floor all day and night and don't get put back on the shelves for days.
You can see my chair in both pictures so that will give you an idea of the size of the room. The table takes up most of the space and we have to pull it away from the windows in order for someone to fit back there for dinner. The dining room is 17' x 8'. You can also see that we don't have doors on the closet on the left. They kept getting hit because they stuck out and we couldn't get by them, they were bi-fold doors. So we just took them off. Also we only have 3 chairs left from the set that are unbroken. We need a new dining room set or at least new chairs. That will probably have to wait until my dh gets a job. My son is sitting on one of our computer chairs. When we have dinner my daughter brings her desk chair down from upstairs and one of my other kids sits on a glider rocker's foot part. The rocker is broken in the basement. Anyway this is the current state of our table when we are doing school. You can see the white board on the right. If I need to write on there Nathan, the one in green sitting on the right, has to move over to the left side so I have room to stand there.
Well that is our School Room. I hope you enjoyed seeing it. Check out the other School Rooms by clicking the button at the top of the page or by clicking the calendar below. Next week is Student Photo Week.
