This week share your favourite spot to study with your kids. There are many places you can sit down to teach, learn, and work, but where do you prefer and why? You’re welcome to include a photo of your study spot! Looking forward to seeing everyone’s!
Over the years, our main study spots have changed. We have had a homeschool area in the dining room, then one in the kitchen and now we actually have a room. Of course, none of those areas kept us confined. When the boys were older, they would actually spread out. Sometimes you would find them in their bedroom working, other times they would be in the family room in front of one of the computers, and at other times you would even find them outside reading. Or, as son #2 just reminded me, you could often find them all reading while sitting on different heating vents with a blanket tented around them! No, the house wasn't that cold...but something about the warm air on a wintry day felt, oh so, good.
I am finding things are not much different with my daughter. Yes, we have a school room and I would say that MOST of our work is done in there. We still roam around though. In fact, yesterday all school work that was accomplished was done in a car in a parking lot waiting for kid #2. We have been known to school in the kitchen. Kid #4 sits at the counter, while I work on getting a meal together. You can sometimes find us taking our books outside enjoying nice weather. If you come by often enough, you might even catch us working at the dining room table, because that is where the laptop is usually set up and I didn't feel like moving it.
However, the assignment was to share our favorite spot. :) Over the many years of homeschooling our kids, I do not think my favorite spot has ever changed!! Nope, for me it has ALWAYS been the same.
Sure the couches have changed, but getting cozy and snuggling up next to a child and sharing a good story or even a textbook lesson has ALWAYS been my favorite. I'll even bet it is all my kids' favorite study spot!
