Book Basket Fridays

We are finishing up the introduction weeks and headed into North America.

Good luck searching, and thanks for reading with us here at Our Days  At CA!

book basket

     I don't know about you guys, but when I first got the TM for MFW ECC, I was excited. Here was a complete book of lesson plans I did not have to sit and write out, even though I tweaked it a little to fit us, and added some things in, like the highlights top secret. Although when it came to getting things ready for the book basket, our public library was scarce on the books referred by the Hazells. So I spent most of the summer trying to find books at our library to fit in with each week. My kids LOVE to read, sometimes I think it is all they do, so I had a job ahead of me.
     When I finally finished I was happy with the results, so happy that I thought I would share my hard work with you guys. So each lesson I am planning on posting a what's in the book-basket the Friday before we start a country, in hopes that it might help someone else out there. Good luck and thanks for reading with us here at our days at CA.

From main room to bedroom

We decided to move the "classroom" from the main room to a bedroom at the last possible minute, but that is me, constantly changing my mind and doing things last minute (been praying about that one!). Doing this has caused us to push back our starting date, but hey I am not on anyone's schedule, don't you love homeshool!? Anyway I have decided to post some before and after pictures to give you guys a peek into our first official classroom.

                                                                        BEFORE!
Yikes!

In this mess, if you can find them, is our school table, bought at a garage sale for 5 dollars! and color coded (we color code EVERYTHING) chairs from Target on clearance last year for three dollars, I LOVE clearance!
After some organizing
This corner is my desk and the tot and pre-schooler's shelves. I tried to do this in one night, always the procrastinator, in the mourning it still looked like this! Well at least everything got labeled!? And look I found my all important thumb drive with my LOTW files I had been missing "miraculously" on the floor the next mourning, oh, how things grow legs around here!
Same corner
                            

                                                                  FINALLY ORGANIZED
Here is our classroom finally clean and organized! Here you see our wonderful table big enough for 4 and me at the head to teach. the closet outside the door is used for our art supplies. The cubes on the left are again color coded and contain the kids fun box things, free read books, and library books. along with our math, science and Bible cubes. SO MANY cubes, and a place for EVERYTHING!
The pink workboxes on the side belong to Lady Jey, I have not set those up completely, hope to be done before the school year is out!
Here is the right side of the classroom and the one which gave me more trouble. Our table finally cleared off and repositioned so all 4 children have room to sit. In the back corner you see Princessa's workboxes and in the opposite corner is Prince's which are blue. My desk is in the front and ready to start my school on Monday (please pray for me to have enough time and energy to do ALL there is to do!) Then beside my desk are two shelves, again yard sale finds!, which house our text books for the year and all the goodies for tot and pre-school.



Here is our calendar activities, which I will go into more detail later. And our calendar is just above this.
