 Well, of course I had to share with my readers and maybe they will want to enter too. But I also wanted to post pictures of my schoolroom here. I would love to  persuade you to post your pictures here as well as enter the contest. Just click on the pics for full size version.

My main pointer for you in regards to organization would be to group your all your books by subject. Get some sort of box for each subject and put them somewhere with a label on it. It sure makes it easier to find what you need and keeps the school day rolling freely! When you have everything you need in one place you don’t have to spend 15 minutes of your school day looking for papers, assignments etc. 

These bins will also keep your room neat and tidy because everything goes back into the bin or box once your done and back in its corner or shelf. Since I started using these bins, my schoolroom is (almost) always neat. Well, maybe not my desk so much, but the rest of the room stays neat! And for those of you who do not have the luxury of a special room for your school, bins and boxes will keep your family or dining room neat and tidy! Hey you could stack them in a corner and put a table cloth over it after school is out!

Also, don’t be afraid to show you have a school room. When I first started homeshcooling I wanted my school room to look like part of my house not a school room. I quickly found out it was not worth the effort to try to make it look like no school goes on here. That does not mean it has to be a mess, it just means make it a neat school room and be proud of that portion of your home too. This is your life and it is part of who your family is now. Be proud of it!
