No workbooks, no teacher guides, no workboxes, no folders, no binders... honestly, not even very many notepads and pencils and crayons and drawing papers.
But you know what we do have?
Books, books, books, books, books.
I'd not too long ago shown off the main floor of our house, plus our basement rec room, which are some of the major spots where learning happens.
So as part of the Not Back to School Blog Hop this week, instead of showing off our "homeschool room," which isn't really a thing we have, I decided to show off the homes of our favorite resources.
Welcome to the Otto Family Bookshelf Tour, 2012 edition!an online bookstore, and this is the main set of shelves in our "book room," of inventory listed for sale. Before it sells, though, we often find ourselves "borrowing back" a title for impromptu reading!
Ephemera Warehouse. Not pictured in this room are also boxes and boxes of ephemera, a shelf of vintage schoolbooks and some of Sarah's craft supplies. Sadly, it is also our guest bedroom. (Doesn't everyone's guest bedroom feature a futon and 2,000 books, and nothing else?)
Ruth Manning-Sanders. (Doesn't everyone's husband have a collection of books by a deceased and somewhat obscure fairy-tale author... OK, I'm done.) These are actually WONDERFUL books, and make up a good part of our bedtime reading, complete with wonderful voices by Chris.
Also, immediately to the left of this is a plastic under-bed tote full of... more books!! "The ones I want to keep safe," Sarah says.
Did you enjoy your tour of the Otto Family Library? We hope so - because this really shows where learning happens!
(Oh, and in case you missed the first installment, our entry for "Curriculum Week," last week's theme, was the unschooled version of a seventh-grade-ish curriculum plan.)
