dragons in the flower bed Posted February 2, 2008 Share Posted February 2, 2008 We read together on the couch in the living room. The children play with Legos in their room while listening to audiobooks. They do messy projects in the kitchen. They sit to write or sketch at the bistro table in our library. They do joint projects and play board games at the coffee table in our library. When I have to supervise them both at separate tasks, they work on either side of me at the dining room table. It is true that at first I envisioned the library as our schoolroom, but the map ended up in the living room because over an armchair was the only spot we didn't have bookshelves. I realized there's no place to snuggle up altogether in there, and if I added a place for that we'd have less room for books . . . so we school all over. I realized I'm glad it worked out that way, because I don't want the children to think of learning time as separate from living time. I don't plan to ever have a dedicated school room. Am I the only one? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
