It’s September, which means now that things are starting to settle down around here, we’re getting everything ready for back to homeschool. And that of course involves rearranging and reorganizing the studio.
You know, because it’s definitely one of our favorite things to do. Oh, and did I mention that we acquire new things almost constantly? The perks of being a blogger, right? I actually have a huge pile of preschool stuff packed and ready to find a new home until baby girl is old enough for it in a few years.

The little guy is obviously excited to get started with Mother Goose Time again and even more so now that we’ve taken a month off. And let me tell ya something else. Taking a month off was definitely strange. Sometimes we don’t do much for a week or so, but more often than not, we homeschool year round.
I’ve always tried to make it part of our everyday lives. You know, raising lifelong learners and all. I loved reading as a kid, so we do lots of that independent of everything else.
And let’s not forget about making art. Again, it’s just one more thing that I’ve tried to incorporate into our lifestyle as much as possible, but I digress.
This post is supposed to be about organizing, so let’s get to it. If you haven’t already seen our awesome preschool homeschool space, you can check it out here:
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way and you’ve had the opportunity to look at our space for each homeschool year, let’s talk about what’s changed. Here are 3 ways that our preschool homeschool space has evolved.
The most obvious thing is that we of course have a lot more stuff now. When we started doing preschool homeschool a few years ago, our learning space was kinda bare.
We still hadn’t acquired much as far as books and curriculum and if you’ve been around for a while, then you definitely know that ship has sailed. At this point, it’s probably safe to say that we need a larger studio. Lol…
- We learned what’s important to us and what we’re willing to invest in. And that really comes down to lots of books and art supplies. That might sound crazy to some mamas, but it’s the basis of everything that we do. Our days very much revolve around reading and creating.
- The studio is a lot more organized. When you’re limited on space, you have no choice but to be organized. I can tell you exactly what’s in every basket and where to find any book. We very much adhere to the “like goes with like” principle, meaning that we do our best to keep things sorted and stored together. All of our puzzles and games are on the shelves. Art supplies are on the cart. And of course books are in our library.
- We created spaces for our favorite activities. The little guy has a sensory table as well as a STEM station. We added a magnet board and put together our library corner. We basically rearranged and reorganized to make it easier for him to get things out and put them away on his own.
I love that being a preschool homeschool mama gives me the ability to do just that. We can make every aspect of our experience work for us. We can cater to our little kids’ individual learning styles and put together an awesome plan for each school year.
