Are you homeschooling (or reluctantly homeschooling) this coming year? More and more schools around the country are announcing plans for back-to-school (in-person, remote/distance learning, or a hybrid approach).

My cousin Tonya is already WAY on top of things. She has two young girls and another one on the way. She decided to opt for the remote learning approach/virtual academy. She created this amazing room so her daughters won’t miss out on the fun of kindergarten and preschool. Look at this beautiful space she created as a home classroom.

This space is inviting and welcoming and makes me want to sit and color. I wish I had somewhere in my house that I could do this. Maybe even in a corner or wall – that shiplap bulletin board paper is amazing! (And it’s a whiteboard too!) This would also make a cute backdrop for teachers that are going to be remote teaching from their homes.

For the bulletin calendar set (Rustic Bloom Calendar Bulletin Board Set) – Tonya laminated the smaller pieces that will be handled a lot. Adhesive hook and loop circles stick to the back of the pieces. This way the pieces should last a long time!

I love everything about this room! What is your favorite part of this beautiful space that Tonya created?

    We’re currently trying to figure out a dedicated school space for Luke, who will be starting 7th grade in just over 2 weeks (!!). Need to order a desk and probably some other things, but won’t need nearly the setup your amazing friend created (I kind of wish we did need it – sooooo cute!). Basically, he’ll need a space for his Chromebook and some storage for school supply essentials like pencils, pens, binder, paper, etc.

    Can’t believe Luke will be in 7th grade! I am right there with you – my kids have been doing schoolwork at the dining room table. We are trying to figure out a more dedicated space. My cousin’s home classroom is so adorable – wish I could re-create some of that!
