  1. This is a lovely space and I love to see all your materials displayed so beautifully! I learn so much every time I visit your blog. Thanks for all the links and tips.

  2. You space is so beautiful. I really appreciate the wealth of practical and honest tips. I love the little touches such as the paper chain of kindness.

  3. I love how you talked about the reasons for having a homeschool classroom and discussed so many other aspects of your pictures. We’re in the process of investing in materials every month. I agree it’s completely worth it! What a great room to learn in!

    • Hi Kara-
      They’re actually super-cheap hardware store shelves! I bought them for less than $10 on sale, but they usually run around $20-30. They also have a small hole in them so they can be stacked.
      I know they’re a bit bare bones, but they are super sturdy and I prefer them to the Ikea shelving that we have in the playroom and bedrooms because they are open and can fit trays of any size (our square shelves, work has to go in sideways and it’s not as attractive). I’ve also been told Jysk sells them, but I’d probably go with Home Depot.

    • It’s actually an outdoor rug from Homesense. It’s hand-woven plastic but feels really nice under their feet – and it’s really easy for the kids to roll up if they want to do something on the bare floor. (I wanted something that they could roll and wouldn’t cause too much friction or extra padding when they were using their work mats.) Fair-trade and under $20!

  4. I love your space! And it was very interesting for me to read your reasons for setting up a separate space for G and your other daycare children. As I have learned myself in a very painful first experience, each person’s Montessori space must not only follow the child, but must reflect the parent/caregiver’s philosophy and style as well. I appreciate that you spent the time to outline your reasons for us, it helps to reflect not only upon the how but also the why.

    • Very well worded, I will second that and save me some time. 😉 Thank you so much for sharing with us, I am trying to not only organize my homeschooling space but give it meaning to the children, too. I’ve searched for a concise example and this page sums it up nicely. You have been a blessing to this family! Best regards.
