1st Day of School

When dropping my Munchkin off for the first day of school today (can I get a *sniff, sniff*?.....actually it was more like *sob,sob* on my part) I lingered in the classroom a bit to get the lay of the land. I was impressed with the organization of the room and all the Classroom Decorations. For a while I had considered homeschooling, but I never could have made my house resemble anything like that classroom. It really gave the kids a feeling of uniformity and THIS is where we learn and play with our new friends!! I think, at least for Munchkin, it's the kind of change and teaching setting that is needed. A space that is truly defined for it's purpose and not our kitchen table.

It would definitely be possible to make a special room in your house look like a classroom. I have quite a few homeschooling moms and I think they would agree how important it is to be able to set the scene for learning (at least for some children). I know I find it easier to focus on crafting if I am in the right room with all the right supplies.

The site School Supplies for Less offers Teacher and Homeschooling supplies. Everything from chalk to balance beams and thematic units to overhead projectors and everything in between. Not only do they have all the things you need to work in the classroom, they have great classroom decorations. I found these adorable cupcake accents and just had to show you:
In that same line of thought, I dropped off some cupcakes today for Munchkin's class (made by my MIL). I added a little gel icing because I am, essentially, Martha Stewart.
