DIY School Centers

by Ivory Soap on 02/06/2012

Thank you for visiting Little House in the Suburbs. If you like what you see, please SUBSCRIBE.


Workboxes are a popular way to organize homeschool these days, however, we don’t have the space for that system.  I just stack up Dollar store cookie trays with the work.  See more about it here.

In our house, I don’t have a dedicated school room, so for the first fifteen minutes of each school day, I set out the weekly centers all over the house.  See more about that here.



Not everything I use is DIY.  Some things are store-bought.  See my review of some of those centers here.


If you want to see the insides of some of our actual books and how I adapt them, see this list of posts here.

Hi, Tasha,
Great post. As a retired former English teacher (middle school, HS, and college), I’m impressed. So many wonderful tools and ways you teach! Nice job!

I don’t know if you’re familiar with the game Masterpiece, but I used that as an aid to teaching art. The kids loved it — they even used it with their children!

Keep up the wonderful work!
