Just wanted to share a few additions that I added to our schoolroom/home. I also purchased some plastic containers with lids to try and get a bit more organized! My ‘craft’ room is a crafting/homeschooling supplies disaster!
I added a new shelf to our schoolroom, this shelf has a music and an art bin at the top. The cubes each hold different topic themed items, that they can use at their own free will. There are dinosaur items, US State items, and FARM items. I’ll change these as the themes change. I need to pick up 2 more cube bins, in these bins I store manipulatives and other things I use for their work boxes.
The Pantry – I moved their plastic ware, cups, bowls and plates to a bin on the bottom shelf of the pantry, with their snacks as well…this way they are easier for them to reach. It better allows them to help themselves to things. My oldest likes to get his own breakfast in the morning (he has been doing this for over a year), and in the past would get a chair to reach the bowls. Now he can more safely help himself!
I would like to buy a small pitcher for juice in the fridge too, so they can more easily pour their own. We buy the big Costco size bottles, so when they are full they have difficulty.
