Organizing The New School Year

School Room Prep


So far in this series we’ve covered:

  • A Year In Review:  I always begin by reviewing the year we just finished.
  • Choosing Curriculum:  Once you know what you all liked and didn’t like last year, you can then move on to the new stuff.
  • Letters Of Intent:  Each state is different, but I’ll be sharing what I do and a free download you can use.
  • Time to Plan: My absolute favorite time – planning the new year!

Now we’re on to – School Room Prep!

If you follow me on social media you know that we just moved not quite 2 months ago.  So our school room just may look a little like this right now.

So, no, we are not organized in there yet but we’re getting there and I will be sharing our homeschool room when it’s all finished up.  Here are a few tips that I use to get our school room all prepped and ready for the new year!

Designate and organize your shelves.

  • Decide which section of shelves are for which child.
  • Organize each child’s books by subject and then the order you will need them.
  • Label away!  I print out my subject labels (free download below) on card stock, laminate, cut out, and then use poster putty to attach on shelves.

Supplies!  You’re going to need supplies!

  • As you’re working on your lesson plans keep a running list of resources/supplies you will need.
  • In the download below you can organize it by subject, resource/supply and date needed.  Supply check off or cross out as you acquire the item.
  • Planning one month at a time helps you with your budget for school supplies.

Have some fun – Decorate!

  • Homeschool = Fun School!  Start with your school room.  Learning is supposed to be fun.  Keep it bright, colorful and cheerful.

I have a download for you that I hope will help you in your school room prep time.  I’ve included labels for your shelves and a resource/supply list for you.
