Recently I posted about our move from dining room table to our dedicated learning space known as "the end room" - so click on over and have a look!
I have really enjoyed this blog hop and I have a special photo here just for Ingi at Defying Gravity who does lots of cool stuff with her lovely gifted kids and will appreciate a look at our dining room table tonight...
This is what the table looks like WITH a dedicated learning space LOL.
As you might notice, there is a birthday card from November for Baden Powell's birthday today (founder of Scouts), a mini microscope, a bug catcher, assorted art materials from today's Minoan Ancient Greece art activity, a volcano kit ready to launch into action to devastate Thera and bring the downfall of the Minoans, November's sewing kit, leaves in vases from July's nature study walk, assorted supplements, a huge collection of tiny gorgeous robots in lego from July (including her "Lost Thing" from the Shaun Tan book)...and our dinner!
This is truly a learning space, because it is where we are! It makes me think of the old song - "wherever I lay my hat, that is my home"...for us, like most homeschoolers, wherever the family is, that is the learning space : )
Oh, and a truly lovely moment happened this Monday, July started the first Harry Potter while November started the fifth. Even Perrin our cat is happy about that, as it means more kids in the reading room for more time on laps.
