The Problem: Spending time searching for what we needed to start our history studies. History books scattered throughout the house. Supplemental material getting lost in my stacks.
Answer: IKEA Expedit shelf! With two baskets for all those Tapestry of Grace extras (e.g., Map Aids and Writing Aids discs, Pop Quiz and more).
Yes, on another trip to IKEA, we got a 4×2 shelf with a couple of baskets. (Remember, we are spacing those trips out). Here is all the history goodness this shelf unit houses:
- Tapestry of Grace spines – or the books we refer to for an entire Tapestry year
- 1 basket – Tapestry of Grace POP Quiz CDs, lapbooks, Writing Aids and Map Aids discs
- Tapestry History binders for each child
- Tapestry Writing binders for each child
- Visual Latin Binders
- 1 basket for miscellaneous – don’t we all need a catch it all spot?
This shelf is also in the family room. The same place we have our…
1. Most Used Bookcase, 2.Around the Couch Expedit shelves and book rack 3. School Books on the Mantel and our 4. History shelf (photo of our red writing binders and Tapestry binders). We use these all the time.
If you are interested in more Tapestry of Grace, we’re pretty passionate about it around here. All these added this week:
- Books for Tapestry of Grace
- Tapestry of Grace for the Teacher
- Tapestry of Grace at Hodgepodge (updated index)
The rest of the Hodgepodge week…
