Hi everyone! We’re cleaning up, cleaning out, and rearranging our school room, and so today I’m sharing our updated homeschool room tour with you! We have moved things around from last year just for a little change and we love it!

I want to start off by saying that you by no means need to have a dedicated “classroom” in order to homeschool. You can literally homeschool anywhere you have space and wherever you prefer. We often pack up and head to the library to do school, sometimes we end up in the living room, and other times we head outside. It really depends on the day and our mood!

That said, I do have a setup school area that we use the majority of the time. It works well for our family and we’re thankful to have this space! So I thought it would be fun to take a little tour and show you how we have it all set up now that we’ve moved!

Watch Our 2021 Updated Homeschool Tour here!

For more details on our school desk setup. Ikea discontinued the tabletops I purchased, but they replaced them with the Linnmon Table Tops, white. I think everything else is the same. Here are links to the desk pieces.

As promised, here are some links to the products mentioned in this video and a few other products we’ve used in our homeschool:

2021-2022 Year-at-a-Glance Calendars

2021 2022 year at a glance calendars

Hi everyone! It’s time for my 2020-2021 year at a glance printable calendar pages! 

2021yearataglance coah
2021-2022 Year-at-a-Glance Calendars 21

Normally I don’t offer my year-at-a-glance calendar pages as a stand-a-lone because they come in my planners. But since I’ve had so many requests I decided to go ahead and make one for you all.

I created them in both portrait and landscape so they can go with whichever planner you prefer!

I also added some fun features to it so you can plan out your overall homeschool year.

Helpful planning sections include:

  • Start and End dates
  • Semester and Quarters
  • Holidays and Vacations
  • Field Trips

I also use a highlighter to mark the dates as well so it’s easy for me to see them on the calendar. And yes, I use the same highlighter color as the topic boxes on the form just to make things easier to see.

I hope these calendars help you in your planning!

How to Organize Your Fabric Scraps

how to organize your fabric scraps

We all have them. The more we sew, the more scraps we accumulate! We can either toss them, give them away, or figure out how to organize and use them. And today I’m going to show you how I’m making my fabric scraps work for me!

How to Organize Your Fabric Scraps 25

Watch How to Organize Your Fabric Scraps video here!

I’ve decided to cut my fabric into usable sizes. Anything larger than this will end up in my main fabric bins which I will show next time when I share how I organize my quilting fabric. Of course, you can cut your scraps into whatever sizes work best for you, but having them organized like this really helps you see what you have, and make sure that your scrap bins are easy to use.

  • 1-1/2″ strips
  • 2-1/2″ strips
  • 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ squares
  • 3-1/2″ strips
  • 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ squares

Printing Tips:

I suggest printing the planner double sided. Then I take mine to a local office supply store and had it spiral bound. It cost approximately $5.00 for the spiral, plastic cover, and backing. I also suggest printing it on a light weight cardstock or higher quality copy paper for durability and to prevent ink bleeding through the pages.

If your printer doesn’t have double sided printing, you can simply print all of the odd pages, then flip and print the even pages on the back side. Just make sure you’re pages are set up in the right order to print the correct pages on the backsides.

Suggestions for use:

I get some colorful pens, I like Frixion erasable pens, and start planning! The dates are already dated along the top of each page, all you have to do is fill in your assignments!

You might even wish to use different colored pens for each subject to help keep things organized and easy to read.

Hope you enjoy this planner!

You can even print an extra one for your students if they prefer to work off of their own planner.

2021-2022 Homeschool Lesson Planner 48

I use colorful Frixion erasable pens to start planning! The dates are already dated along the top of each page, all you have to do is fill in the subjects down the left hand column. Next add in your lessons!

I like to use different colored pens for each of my children. As you proceed through your lessons, highlight the completed items so you know that they are finished.

This super fun planner is available right now! And you are more than welcome to print extra copies for yourself or your children, so you do not need to purchase one planner per person. Yay for sharing!
