PJ Academy 2009/2010 School Year.

I love seeing how other home schoolers have their school space set up....gives me ideas :)
So I thought I'd share some of the changes we made at PJ Academy!

We are working with a small space. Rooms have to double up ;) Someday I would LOVE to have a room to just home school......we'll see!!

The bulletin board is a new idea this year.
This has our school verse. Proverbs 1:7
Our Reading Charts.
Our New Schedule.
Chore Chart and how to take care of all the animals.
AND a way for the kids to now earn their computer minutes!


Computer "Minutes"

The board will also have 3 of these. One for each of the bigger kiddos.
It will be a weeks supply of work. So if they choose to work ahead they can.
We are going to try for a bit more independent studying this year.
That will work for 2 of them 1 not sure and won't work for #4 ;)
This is also my "cheater" way of keeping track of what we do this year.
www.thehomeschoolmom.com had oodles of different types of printouts!! If you are a home school Mom or just a Mom looking to organize a bit
I HIGHLY recommend checking that site out!!!

This is in the Office/Library.
The Top Half of "Big Kid" Section

The Bottom Half.
The always full library bag!

#4's Section!

This is in the Family/Dining Room
Used for the Verse of the Week and "Copy Work"
Also Reminders for Mom of what needs to be done that week ;)

Yeah!!!!! I love planning the homeschool year. I am getting inspiration from your pictures. If you ever want to talk "homeschool" just e-mail!

Ok, one more thing. . . last year I started using Homeschool Tracker (basic edition), which is a free download. With a few clicks a day, you can record attendance, field trips, book logs, assignments, grades, etc. At the end of a term you can print all the reports and throw them in a binder. It is totally free and totally easy! I was using the paper organizers, but found this was a really great tool for keeping organized. Check it out.

We are anxious over here too. This time of the year is so much fun. We are moving in 2 weeks so we are going to have even more work to do, but it will be a challenge. Thanks for the great ideas.
