Back-to-{home}school: our learning room spruce up

Now, right off the bat I want to say that not all--or even most--of our schooling happens in this room.  Our Learning Room (a converted dining room) is where our family computer and printer is, our art supplies can be found, wall maps and chalkboard are hanging, a large portion of our family library is (although every room in our house has bookcases!), and our educational resources are.

It's pretty much the organizational hub for our homeschool.  But learning happens all over our house ...and yard ...and often other places, too.

Each fall I like to do some cleaning (and cleaning out!), hang a new thing or two on the walls, and just spruce it up in general.

This year I've put our reproduction historical US documents back on the wall since we're studying US history.  I've add a few cool printable infographics from Kids Discover about how our bodies work since we're studying human anatomy.  A new map of the apostle Paul's world is on the wall since it coordinates with Mr. B's reading.  And, just for fun, I made (completely from scraps around the house) a fabric pennant to hang at the top of the room to add some color and general festiveness.  :)

It always feels so good to get the room all tidied up and ready to start back!

You can see what we've done other years in our various learning spaces at these links:

And, now to get busy planning...
