The Schooling Corner / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

The Schooling Corner


Educational Small Shops We Use + Love

I love sharing with y'all and talking about all the things that we use in our classroom! In addition to linking the small shops in my Instagram posts and in several blog posts, I've also compiled a master list of products we use from small shops down below. I'll update this list periodically / when we add new items to our classroom, so keep an eye on this page. 

As always, I want to place a little disclaimer here saying that some of these products were gifted and some links are affiliate links. There is no pressure to buy anything through these links, but if you do, just know that I reaaaaaally appreciate the support and so does my little crew. 

we love this small shop! 
their chalkboards are such a great tool for the classroom.

another great shop filled with educational things! 
bonus points because they sell organizational baskets and jars that are so practical. 

Safari Ltd

one of my favorite places to get animal figurines for our animal studies. 
they have an amazing collection of animals and life cycle sets.
great quality toys. sturdy and amazing attention to detail. 
bonus points because these figurines are amazing for open-ended play beyond the classroom. 

Treasures From Jennifer

this shop has all the things! 
so many great tools and amazing quality. 

Pip & J Papery

love this shop. 
these products are products that will grace our home and classroom for years to come. 
not only are they gorgeous, but these are tools that will help instill the word of God in the hearts of my boys and that makes my heart sing.

Jack + Link

this small shop is the literal best. 
they have some of the best prices, so you don't feel like you're breaking the bank.
the owners are so helpful and sweet too, you can't help but want to support them! 

Tiny Theologians

another sweet shop that has bible curriculum add ons. 
really loving all the tools this shop provides!
I can already tell that I'll eventually buy everything she offers; I love them that much.

some items can be found on my Amazon storefront 

Homeschooling Community 

I've set up a space on facebook where homeschooling mamas can come together and share experiences, resources, and support each other as we navigate teaching our children at home. It's meant to be a little community for all -- experienced homeschoolers, new homeschoolers and people who are thinking about + are curious about homeschooling. so, if any of that applies to you -- come, join us. all are welcome.
