Do you ever feel like you are drowning in curriculum?
Geez, I do! Let me SHOW you what I mean.
Here is our homeschool room at the moment.
You can add 3 big tubs of curriculum that are stored in the garage as well.
I told you, drowning! LOL
When we moved into this house at the beginning of this summer, I tried to organize everything and make it easy to access. It started out great, but over time, and as we have unpacked more items, everything has gotten a little disarrayed, stuffed and overwhelming.
It is time to purge and organize!
We are planning a mini-break this month, and my crew and I will be taking that time to go through everything! I mean the books, the helps, the arts and crafts supplies, the school supplies, the experiments and projects, the tools, and every tub and drawer.
During this whole process, I have to consider that there are more children who are moving up through the grades. While I can’t get rid of everything that I am not using right now, I can get rid of items I have multiples of, have never used, do not fit their learning styles, or items I have tried that just didn’t work for us.
This leaves me with a few questions for you. Your answers will be a big help in reorganizing and finding “new homes” for items.
Do you organize by subject or grade?
Do you stick with one curriculum all the way through high school, or do you change your curriculum once they reach the 9th grade?
How do you organize your helps and learning tools to be able to access them when you need them?
How/ where do you sell curriculum and helps you no longer need?
Thank you for any help you can give me!
I will take and post pictures of how everything turns out. I love getting a peek into other peoples’ homeschooling areas!
