Fun Posters for Your Homeschool Rooms

Maybe it's just me, but winter always seems like a fun time to spruce up the old school room (or living room or back porch or hallway). We've rounded up some delightfully nerdy posters to give your space a little lift.

Full of wacky examples, passionate about things like the difference between they're, there, and their, and illustrated by images like barfing pandas, the Oatmeal Grammar Pack posters may not be for everyone. But they're hilarious and packed with truly useful information for growing writers.

 

Fun Posters for Your Homeschool Rooms


I love the gorgeous DNA Double Helix print from Grammatical Art, but you can also find cool dinosaur prints, playful grammar posters, and other science artwork in this shop.

 

Fun Posters for Your Homeschool Rooms


Outmane Amahou's minimalist graphic prints condense the history of art to a few indelible images. There's a pretty healthy roster of options, so you can put together a wall to go with your art history studies.

 

Fun Posters for Your Homeschool Rooms


This groovy space alphabet by Fifty Five Hi's has tons of information and cool, vintage schoolroom style. The shop's Dino Alphabet is also pretty fab.

 


More inspirational than informational, the Be Radical poster by Ink & Sword makes science look good.

 


One of the most stylish anatomical posters out there, this typographic diagram of the heart by Ork Posters is a great science poster when your schoolroom is also your dining room.

 


I have a weakness for British history, so I am a little obsessed with this Kings and Queens of Britain poster by Supertogether.


Stuff We Like :: 7.15.16

home|school|life's Friday roundup of the best homeschool links, reads, tools, and other fun stuff has lots of ideas and resources.

This week's edition of Stuff We Like comes from Shelli, who always likes such cool stuff!

Homeschool

We haven’t used it for very long yet, but so far my nine-year-old has been enjoying the science curriculum by Elemental Science we picked out for him. It was his first choice when it came to our summer homeschooling plans!

I also love that I stumbled on Carla Sonheim’s art website because it’s just what I needed to get my Art Fridays started again. She has a lot of cool online classes and a few free tutorials too. My boys and I especially enjoyed her Crazy Birds Tutorial

 

Links

around the web: How do artists make a living? – I think this article is spot on because I’ve had a similar experience. Anyone pursuing a career in the creative arts should read it.

on the blog: We have a few years to go before we enter the high school stage, but I’m sure glad Amy is paving the way for me.

in the archives: I keep looking back at Rebecca’s review of a critical thinking curriculum because I really really want to buy it. 

 

On my Wishlist

I’m also eyeing these awesome bird posters that I would love to buy for my bird-loving six-year-old. This one? Or this one?

 

Books

The nine-year-old and I finished reading The Long Winter (he loved it!), which is part of the Little House series. We’ve just started Little Town on the Prairie. We’re also reading Old Yeller, and I’m still getting my daily dose of Calvin and Hobbes.

For myself, I just finished reading I Am of Irelaunde: A Novel of Patrick and Osian. The author combined some of the known facts of St. Patrick and combined it with the folklore of Ireland to create a fictional account of St. Patrick’s life, and there are many beautiful stories within the larger story. It inspired me to read a little about the real St. Patrick and what is known of him.

 

T.V.

Our most current beloved documentaries: BBC’s series The Human Planet (Netflix) – Wow. Just wow. Perfect for social studies! (Parents with sensitive children may want to preview first.) AND  Nature’s Jungle Animal Hospital (PBS) (Parents with sensitive children may want to preview first.)

Just for me: I finally finished the final season of Downton Abbey. If you like happy endings, you’ll like this show. (Sometimes, you just need a happy ending.)
