- Hunter’s bed and desk area. Above Hunter’s bed is a net for all of his stuffed animals. On the wall at the head of his bed are postcards from all around the country and world, sent from his aunt, and on the side wall is his map and flag display with all the world and state flags. His fiber-optic nightlightis plugged in below. I also store some things under his bed, like some puppets, a box of word cards, and some games.
- The wall above his little table / desk has a little number line, quantity / numeral cards, a hundreds chart, and a large multiplication poster. There is also a picture of Psalm 144:1-2 on it, and three military-themed “motivational” style posters (with the words Command, Strength, and I forget what else).
- His desk has a little shelf / sorter with various types of paper in it, a cassette tape shelf, cutting strips tin, a pencil can, and a solar system placemat. Underneath his desk is a set of plastic drawers with a lot of art supplies in it, including coloring books, paints, letter tracing cards, stamps, etc.
- To the left of his desk is the “math and music” shelf – the top shelf holds a CD player / clock and a CD rack. The middle shelf holds a variety of games – Chinese checkers, Rush Hour, a fractions puzzle, a “Busy Bugs” patterning game, “Mighty Mind” game, a Lauri visual discrimination puzzle, dominoes, and a Chess / Checkers / Backgammon / etc. game set. The bottom row holds some geoboards, and some drawers with various math materials (Math U See counters, playing cards, quantity cards, ruler, compass, dice, etc.)
- Then there is the Ikea wardrobe (which is mine), but it doubles as a poster display, with Ancient China and Ancient Egypt posters, Parts of Speech poster, and Hunter’s days of creation craft. On the right side there are some Bible verse posters and sight word posters, both homemade.
“He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good…”
