We have a smaller house with no space for a “school room.” So learning happens in our whole house! We have learned to be creative with small space homeschooling.

While I sometimes pine over the separate rooms other home schools have, I think it has been a blessing for us to not have that space.
- Our entire house has a learning atmosphere.
- Everything we’re working on is showcased.
- We are forced to keep things tidier than if it were all tucked away in a room somewhere.
- We can “do school” where we do life!
Small Space Homeschooling Areas
This is a central area in our open floor plan where a lot of learning, quiet times, reading and play happen.
- Toys rotated in (bins in coat closet hold rotation toys), a fun road rug from Ikea
- TAG readers
- Magna doodles
- Play kitchen
- Lego table
- Mirrors and baby toys
- Educational posters
Our living room is mostly an adult space, although lots of forts are built and the big, low coffee table is perfect for lego or magna tile creations.
- Coffee table and other furniture for creative play
- Bible Time basket (for daily morning Bible Time and spontaneous reading)
- Library book basket
Many art projects happen at the dining room table or outside, but our little art area is very versatile for projects as well. There are drawers nearby with smocks and supplies.
- Easel with art paper rools
- Dry erase and chalk boards (part of the easel)
- Flannel board (propped onto easel)
- Art display clipboards (more hung up in bathrooms)
