Day 2: Inspiration

So after yesterday's assessment and the conclusion our learning space is drab, boring and well pathetic in a very sad way, today I turned to the web for a little inspiration!

I do not want to turn our home into a copy of a public school classroom, however I want it inviting and an environment in which learning flows and is inspired in a highly motivational way. One that adds interest and beauty within the home too. Today I poured over sites and homeschool set ups and while much of what I found was aimed for a younger crowd than my 10 year old daughter and 13 year old son, I did find inspiration!

Would you like to visit some of the places I did? Also I would love if you left links here that showcase photos of your own homeschool learning spaces!

Be sure to stop by http://mariancastle.blogspot.com/2006/09/education-is-atmosphere-discipline-and.html


These are all inspiring links of creating pleasing to the eye and inviting learning spaces. As I said I have 2 older kids to keep in mind as we create our own space here as well as what they are interested in. However I was inspired by the links I shared and am thinking, thinking, thinking and contemplating the very limited space we have available as of right now, in our moment.

What does your learning space look like? Be sure to leave a link to photos in the comment section! We would love to see them!
