Homeschool Memoirs #8 {Study Spot}


This week share your favourite spot to study with your kids. There are many places you can sit down to teach, learn, and work, but where do you prefer and why? You’re welcome to include a photo of your study spot! Looking forward to seeing everyone’s!


We've been spreading out to study for the most part!  Harrison does almost all his schoolwork in his room, usually lying in bed.  Spencer does his schoolwork at the desk in his room.  Landon does his schoolwork on the floor in his room.  Kennady takes her books wherever I am to work on her schooling. 


Spencer, Landon, and Kennady all get together for Science and History classes, however, and we do that at the dining room table.  We also do our read-aloud around the table, although the past week, we've all piled into my bed to do that, and I think the kids really enjoy that more. 


Bottom line for me is that I don't really care where they do their studying, as long as it gets done, and they learn something. 


Here's Kennady working on a reading lesson at the table:

Your children's names are beautiful. I love how they flow together. :) What reading curriculum do you use with your daughter?

Thanks for sharing a glimpse into your study spots, snuggling in bed with a good book is a favorite of ours as well.

The boys used to spread out like that when they got past the "needing mom sitting beside them" stage. :)

Sounds good to me!! We enjoy the living room floor for our read alouds -- many times over tea!

Your homeschooling "rooms" sounds wonderful! Have a great week.

Although we have our classroom, we still pile onto my bed occasionally to do lessons. It's always fun to be able to "learn" absolutely anywhere without restrictions of walls, windows or floors also so we love going outdoors too.

I suspect my children will spread out more to do their own schoolwork as they get older. Right now? They all want to be on top of me. At. All. Times. Not sure I want it any other way. :>)

Many Blessings,

We spread out school as well. Our house is way too small for a dedicated school room. Love your space there!
