It’s that time of the year again! We’re sharing our preschool homeschool space for the 2020-2021 homeschool year. Keep reading for lots of awesome Homeschool Room Ideas.
This year, baby girl will be doing preschool and of course, we’ll be using the same wonderful curriculum that we did with the little guy.

A huge thanks to Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for providing us with their Experience Preschool curriculum for free in exchange for sharing our honest and authentic stories resulting from our personal experiences. It’s been such a huge blessing to us! As always, my opinions on awesome stuff for little kids are 100% my own.
Keep in mind that all preschoolers do things in their own time and on their own terms. What one is ready for, another might not be. Please use your best mama judgement when planning activities for your little kids.
This year things look a lot different. Not only do I have a two-year-old preschooler who is all kinds of excited to be doing school just like her big brother, but I also have a 6-year-old first-grader. All I can say is, “Wow!” How is that even possible?
The Best Preschool Curriculum
I started using Experience Early Learning with the little guy when he turned two and I was definitely impressed with how quickly he learned all the important preschool skills.
By 2.5, he could not only recognize every letter, but he could also tell me what sound each one made. He could count to 30 and recognize numbers as well.
And actually because I started so early with him, he was barely talking, but I assure you all of the language and literacy activities in each of our preschool curriculum kits definitely contributed to the little guy going from barely saying a word to speaking in complete within a matter of months.
Basically all of that to say I love this curriculum and it’s become such a huge part of our everyday lives. I’ve been blogging our adventures with Experience Early Learning (formerly Mother Goose Time) for over four years. Can you believe it?
We actually used quite a few of the activities last year alongside our literature-based kindergarten curriculum and the little guy enjoyed them just as much then as he did the first time around.
Preschool Homeschool Room Ideas
We’ve made lots of changes in the studio this year and we’re actually so close to getting the living room finished, which means the gorgeous oak built-ins that my husband made will hold our amazing homeschool library in all its glory. I’ve always said one can never have too many books. After all, you can always buy more shelves.
At that point, we’ll rearrange and reorganize again and it’ll mean so much more open space in the studio.
We’ll switch out the current bookshelves for cube bookshelves and use those to set up our preschool themes. I’m also hoping to build a huge DIY farmhouse-style chalkboard.
But in the meantime, I really wanted to get started. We’re all way too excited to wait another week or two. And besides, this homeschool mama loves organizing, so… It’s all good. We’ll go ahead and do our All About Me theme and then when we’re ready, we’ll rearrange what we need to.
One of my goals for this homeschool year is to cut down on the number of things out at any given time. I want the little guy and especially baby girl to be able to clean up quickly and easily. I’m sure you noticed there’s really not much on our shelves right now.
I did keep the STEAM bins out, though. It’s important for little kids to practice creative thinking and problem-solving skills and engineering activities are a great way to do exactly that.
I was very intentional with what I put out on our shelves for this theme. I want to be able to rotate our toys based on what we’re learning about, so right now there are of course a number of picture books about the human body, clothes, and staying healthy. I also added a few manipulatives for the five senses.
The texture board for touch and of course the rainbow sensory bottles and blocks for sight. I’d still like to add the kids’ musical instruments for sound or even make another set of Five Senses Preschool Sound Jars. Of course, we’ll be exploring our senses of taste and smell each day during snack time and I have a few fun ideas for that too.
I printed the x-rays that were included in our STEAM bundle and set out my stethoscope as well as a plastic syringe from our Syringe Squirt Art Community Helpers Craft when we learned about doctors.
I’m so thrilled with how everything turned out and I can’t wait to share even more of our All About Me crafts and activities with you this year, so definitely check back!
