do you have a dedicated space?

Do you have a dedicated classroom space in your home?

I'm thinking that if we start homeschooling I'd turn part of my dining room into our "class room". Put up posters and a whiteboard and things of the sort. That way my daughter feels more at school than at home some.

Not really, no. We don't have space. But I generally do our circle time (reading, songs, etc) on the couch & set up art projects on the dining room table. I do have a deviated space to store the materials (office closet)

I do. It should be a formal dining room in the floor plan but when we moved in we referred to it as "the big empty room"for a year. I have a table with a bench for me & DS to sit for his paperwork, a big area rug where we do the rest of our work, an easel with a dry erase board, and then we do story time on the couch. Below is a picture from about a month ago...

We don't. We school all over, but usually on the couch. If we need space to spread out a project, we use the kitchen table. But generally, my kids are curled up on the couch or piled on my bed. I want it to look as little like public school as possible!

We do too! My son loves geography and maps so I knew he would love it as soon as I saw it. I knew we needed a rug because we do a lot of work on the floor(games, puzzles, work trays) and the wood floor isn't exactly cozy! I love how colorful/cheerful it is!

We did mostly to have a room. However we are now schooling from a travel trailer. So we homeschool out of crates. Each kid has one aND most of their stuff goes in there. The rest goes in to long cabinets.

Yes...we have a school room. Our girls share a room now so we could have a school room.

We did have one but we never use it. We tend to just school where ever. About 90% of the time we chill on my bed and work. Or we work outside.

Seeing all the replies about working where ever( couch, bed) is do interesting. I'm trying to figure out what my daughter wants. She asked where we would put her desk. I was a little puzzled and told her we could use the dinning room table as her desk. But with her ADHD and possible autism something wasn't computing to her because she didn't know where she would put her books. So I may need to look for a small desk for her some where.
