Contrary to what comes across on social media and Pinterest, not every family is able to have a dedicated homeschool room in their home. That’s okay, you can still homeschool well without a homeschool room. Here’s how.

EPISODE #52: How to Homeschool Without a Homeschool Room
After homeschooling for well over a decade, I can tell you that homeschool rooms are overrated. If you have the space or desire to create one, then by all means, do it!
But if you either have a tiny home, or don’t want to give up any of your living space for a formal school room, then you don’t have to. You can still homeschool successfully even without a homeschool room.
In fact, if you have young kids, you’ll find it easier to keep them on task and working if you’re altogether around the kitchen table, or reading together on the couch.
Older teens, especially those in high school, will be independent learners who appreciate being on their own while they study and work. They can check in with you without having a formal schoolroom to do it in.
Here are the resources that will help you work out your set-up and then daily upkeep systems as you homeschool without a dedicated homeschool room.

Physical clutter in our homes leads to more stress in our daily lives, not to mention a loss of time as we have to constantly clean, organize, or sort through that clutter to find things.
