My Father's World- 2nd Grade Adventures In U.S. History
We start each day with Together Time.
Note: We had been in school longer than 32 days when I took this picture, but we don't do calendar for days at Co-Op, which is once a week.
Together Time is usually reading our devotional and/or History Book on the couch. If we have a science experiment, we do it in the kitchen before heading to the homeschool room.
Our "Home-school Room" is in our basement, and is about 8 feet by 10 feet, and is right next to the washer and dryer. It isn't fancy, but it works for us. I store most of our supplies in a spinning organizer from Hobby Lobby (used 40 % off coupon of course).
The rest of the art supplies are in the pockets of a screen that I bought from a friend, that also doubles as space to hang posters (clips for poster from Dollar Tree). Similar to this screen.
Out pocket chart is used for calendar.
A local Private School was closing and had a sale of their classroom supplies, and I bought this huge cork bulletin board for $3. It is great for our timeline and Names of Jesus Poster.
After Together Time, each boy has Individual Work, which includes workbox time and chores.
Our Workboxes are based on Sue Patrick Syetm, Instead of moving labels to know what they have done, the boys work from top to bottom and keep the draw open of the drawer they are finishing. I stagger the subjects that need one-on-one time with me, enabling me to help them individually in Math and Language arts. We found the drawer towers for only $25 at Sam's.
You can see inside each of our work boxes on this here.
I try to make all copies at the beginning of the year, and organize by week using hanging folders (Hanging Folder Organzier also from Sam's Club). The basket on top has all my teacher manuals, and is from Dollar Tree.
My Father's World has a grid in the teacher's manual, but I like to write in my own manual from United Art and Education.
