One Room Schoolhouse

It's all the rage in the US! Thousands of children all across the country will return to their one room school houses this year. It's almost like little house on the prairie, except mom is the teacher and there are no tin buckets with which to hold your lunch.

It's the only way to get one on one teacher/student interaction. The opportunity to learn from one another skyrockets. Where else can a junior in high school impart his knowledge of American history to a 4th grader? Where else can a freshman teach a 7th grader how to complete the quadratic formula? Only in these highly specialized, unique one room school houses can this occur on a daily basis.

Anyhow..here are some pics of our one room school house (oh and those are blueberry waffles I made..just had to throw that in there at the end..yum)

Some of the books we read.

Our one room schoolhouse. Boys on the left, girls on the right. You can't see two of the desks..they are in the corners. That's my desk in the middle.

This is the chalkboard hubby made. He painted one of the doors from the cabinet with chalkboard paint..there's just something comforting about writing on a chalkboard.
This is the other door from the cabinet..made into an art shelf.

Oh yeah..those blueberry waffles. Mmm. Mmm. Good.

I like that phrase, One Room Schoolhouse. We don't start back for another 5 weeks.

Then I'll be taking pics, like you.

There's nothing better...God bless your school year!
