My first born just turn FIVE this past week. I honestly cannot believe she is five. The cliche is true; they grow up too fast.As of right now, our town [re-voted] will have a hybrid and fully remote learning option. We plan to have our oldest do the hybrid option.
This wouldn’t be so new to her as she went to preschool a couple of days a week and at home I’d do my own “homeschooling” based on what she was learning at school. I can supplement, but she needs to have her IEP services.My parents got this desk for her birthday; unfortunately it’s sold out. We created a “pretend school” [as she calls it] in the kid’s bedroom. I wanted a desk that was perfect for both her and the twins that they could use for a few more years (the box said ages 3-12). I went to Target to look for school decor/ items at their Dollar Spot but didn’t score anything (the number chart is from last year).
I found this workbook online at Target at for my oldest (says 3-5 yrs old).I also managed to find these at Target, plus I also got markers, crayons, notebooks and erasers for just fifty cents.The hooks and clock are from Walmart.
I also went to Dollar Tree to snag some [more] workbooks, dry erase markers and this ABC border.Some other resources I use for my oldest are ABC Mouse, worksheets from Education.com, the occasional Kiwi Co. Box, and this Melissa & Doug See and Spell puzzle.I keep everything in a section of their closet to minimize “visual” clutter in the space.The twins have picked up a lot of things since my oldest had to do remote learning in the spring. I don’t plan to enroll them in pre-k this year, so I will be doing homeschooling with them as I did with my oldest when she was their age.
And that wraps up our sort-of minimalist homeschool “room!”
I put the links for most of the items but if you have any questions, feel free to comment below. Have a great weekend. 🙂
