As you come up the stairs and enter the room(those stairs you see on the left hand side of the picture) you will pass my pallet bookshelf where we are keeping our extra schoolbooks, our DVDs, our Canadian books, maps and dictionaries. This shelf also keeps our library books so that we all know where they are and they don't get lost under a bed or in a toy box...ain't nobody got time for that!!! ;)
|In the first corner we have the Grade 3 station.....|
In the center of the room, TJ built a divider around which we placed 4 identical tables in a pinwheel form and there we have 4 individual cubicles!
They each have a tv, a dvd player, a study lamp, a cork board and a hook for their headphones.
Each DVD player has been attached underneath the desk for convenience and more desktop room!
The plugs have all been covered with extra pieces of carpet to prevent trippage :)
We even have a computer corner where the girls can do research and practice typing with Mavis Beacon.
We also have a reading corner!
This shelf holds our vast music collection and gives the grade 9's an extra shelf for storage. The filing cabinet has all our tests, quizzes and other forms and important papers all organized and filed for easy access.
TJ even found a convenient place for our pencil sharpener and we have a tiny stool for the little girls.
In the remaining corner is my desk, the copier and school supply storage.
Now TJ is resting from all his labours....until my next project ;)
School is scheduled to start on Monday the 18th though we may start Thursday or Friday. The girls are ready to start and we want to get a good 2 weeks ahead so that when we go on our trip we won't have to play catchup!
We are planning another day trip with the girls soon as a last summer hurrah but this week is busy with our church's week of evangelism.
