Montessori Homeschool Classroom


I know it seems like we have a new tot school classroom every few months, but this is it. IT. We're done moving spaces, and I'm so happy with this room. It gives us much more space than we've ever had before. The natural light floods the space. 


You'll see the same shelves we had in our last room. The open shelves on the left are for our weekly trays that match our theme of the week. The shelves in the middle (with the bins) is where I keep work that I keep out for a month or two at a time. It's mostly just practical life trays. The bins beneath are filled with my supplies and are not meant for use by Henry or the co-op kids. 


On the right side of the room are some new shelves. One of them holds all our sensorial materials. The other shelf has some pre-writing materials and some math work. The bins on the floor are the start of our new continent boxes. 


On the back wall of the room, we have some miscellaneous work -- mostly related to language. We have our felt board with movable alphabet, sound object box, sandpaper letters, and non-fiction letter books. I would love to place a large floating shelf on this wall -- if my wonderful, amazing, super super nice husband agrees. If we end up putting a shelf in, I want to use it for science and math work. 


So, that's it! I can't wait to get co-op started in this space soon!

    1. It is! It's my DIY answer to the movable alphabet. I don't have the budget to get a real one, so we make do with this one. Henry likes to spell his name, but some of the other kids in the co-op are ready for sounding out words.

    1. You can find information here about the movable alphabet! I just made the box with craft wood and glue to fit each letter. http://www.thekavanaughreport.com/2013/08/diy-felt-montessori-movable-alphabet.html
