I am a part of several homeschool groups and I am always looking for ideas online. I do love this board and I think I am going to do the back with different things as well. The kids love it too. It makes our dining room really feel like school. lol Thanks for the comment. Check back we have been busy this week and will be posting more things soon.

I *LOVE* your portable learning center! Where did you get all the stuff for it (Like the calendar, the "today is...", the pic of United States etc.)? Is it from all different places on the net or one specific place? Did you laminate? I'm homeschooling my pre schooler this year and just love this idea!!!! Thank you :)

Alicia,
I got some from online sources and some I created myself. The map of the USA came from a tablet of them I got at a Dollar Store. I laminated most of the items that I put on the board, not the board itself. I used a cheap plastic tablecloth to cover my board, which I love, because the double stick tape comes off really easy to move things around or change dates and such. I will try to post some links to the things I found online on here for you to see. Thanks for stopping by and check back to see more fun stuff. Angie

Okay Alicia,
I looked in my file and I didn't save where I got them from online. I just saved what I found in a file. So I went to google and got a site for you. Now this says for mini office, but a lot of what I used was supposed to be for that, just bigger. Maybe this site will help you. http://www.squidoo.com/minioffice Hope it does. Angie

Hi Angie,
I absolutely LOVE your portable learning center. It is adorable!! and so creative! I have just gathered items to start on a similar project. I got a folding poster display board at walmart for mine. It was the biggest thing I could find. What did you use? I love the tablecloth idea too! Thanks!

Sara,
That is what I used. I just set mine up on my dry erase board stand. So it looks like a bulletin board. :)Hadn't really planned on that, but I love it that way. It is out of the way and easy for the kids to see. Thanks for coming by my blog, check back often as we are always adding new things. Angie
