Organizing Our Homeschool

It's been a while since I've posted! Kept forgetting to upload pics and my phone is being silly about sending emails out. Anyway, wanted to share our organization for our home-school. We don't have a dedicated room since we live in a small townhouse so space is limited. 

These 2 rubber maid type drawer sets come in handy! I have 1 drawer for each child with their workbooks and other daily items in them. On the other side i have one with craft/art supplies then the other 2 are basically stuff we have nowhere else for! On top we have our globe,pencil holder and my daily teaching books. 

Up above the stove in our kitchen I have a bunch of craft supplies and a few other things that i don't like to keep out all the time. 

For the bulk of our curriculum I have a crate labeled with weeks 1-34 (since that is what My Father's World is setup for). In each folder I have
The weekly lesson plan grid
  • a list of supplies
  • time line pieces
  • worksheets for math and note booking
  • sentence strips for Bible memory verses in the weeks we start new ones. 

We have a calendar wall for the children setup so we can practice days of the week, counting, weather and reading a calendar. It's a bit different looking now since it's been moved a few times but same general idea.

The last thing not listed is the shelf in my closet. There I have all the other books that we will use throughout the year. Not on a daily basis or maybe later in the year. 
So hopefully this can help some of you with storage/space issues! We have gotten creative and tried to keep it from overrunning our house but as a homeschool family I guess it tends to after a while! 


  1. Hi! I am stopping by from the MFW Blogroll and co-hosting the My Father's World Homeschool Highlights this school year with Monica @ DiscoverTheirGifts. This is where MFW families connect weekly, or as often as you like, to share what we are doing in our schools. The first one is September 8, the info is on my blog. I hope you join us!


    Nice organization!
