    Default Weekly Poll: What is the favorite place to homeschool in your house?

    Simple question this week!
    I grew up using public school. Every Sunday-Thursday would find me laying on my bed, on my stomach working on homework. I had a desk. I never used it. I hated it. I am not sure if that is because I had been sitting at a desk or table all day OR if I just preferred the stretching out and working part.

    Heck, even now as I write this up... I am sitting curled up on the couch, legs tucked under me and chromebook balanced on my lap. I don't do desks. I don't do being stuck at one thing to work. I can't do it.

    My boys, they did their computer work in the kitchen. At their table we got for the them for THAT purpose. I do childcare in my home and we did our main schooling during nap, so they HAD to be out with me. All the other schooling, do it how you want. Lay on your bed. Sit at the table. Sit on your bed. Heck, stand on your head, on your bed, writing upside down and backwards for all I care. As long as they were learning and comfy, go for it.

    So, what is the FAV homeschool spot for learning in your house?
    And yep, you can click multiple choices!

    I clicked on everything except for bedrooms and bathrooms. Although we do read in bedrooms and do talk about health/life/literature/everything else educational in bathrooms. I would also add - in cars, airplanes, restaurants, nature spots, grandparents' houses etc etc. So, we homeschool everywhere.

    We have a desk set up specifically for Tech to do work at. He's plopped down on the floor IN FRONT OF HIS DESK, to do his work. Mostly it seems to be on our bed or the couch. Although, since he does a lot on his tablet, an amazing amount is done in the car.

    Everywhere except a desk, the bathrooms or bedrooms. I have a desk, but they aren't allowed to touch it. My happy place.
    I'm a work-at-home mom to three, homeschool enthusiast, and avid planner fueled by lattes and Florida sunshine. My oldest is 6 and is a fircond grader (that's somewhere between first and second, naturally), my preschooler just told me she wants to learn how to read, and my toddler is a force of nature.

    I gather all kinds of secular homeschool resources and share them at

    Clicked "other" for my son, who liked to work at this huge table in the basement.

    I had to vote "other" because it varies by season, and subject. Fall and spring and science are usually outside. Reading happens wherever. A lot of school happens curled up by the fire in the winter. Often DS sits at the kitchen island while I cook and he does school work. All that being said, we do have a room that has shelves for school books and supplies, great natural light, 2 work spaces, computer, fish tank, plants, globe, art supplies, bulletin boards and white boards. DS really designed the space, it is his learning space and he prefers to work there when he writes, does math, etc.

    I should have clicked couch too. We do a lot of work at the dinning room table, we do a bit on the couch, and sometimes we'll gather for some art time in my studio

    We have 2 computers networked together in the living room. One computer is for me, and the other is for DS who does distance learning online.

    I selected "other" because I really don't care and we end up working on things everywhere.
