What are Homeschool Workboxes?This year we are using workboxes. There are several reasons we decided to go with this system:
- I liked having our books separated by subject & handy so I wasn’t constantly hunting down what books we were using with each subject. (This tended to lead to a huge 2-3 foot stack of resources by my desk waiting to get used or toppled over by Tinker Bell!)
- It allowed us to keep current projects, lapbooks, worksheets, and books all in one convenient spot. Where we would remember to use them!
- It helps my kids visualize their progress through the school day.
- It was great to help Minnie feel like she had something to do too! Minnie is no longer regularly napping in the afternoon so she needs something to do when big brother & I “do” school. Plus she is ready for worksheets, letters, beginning math, and more. She is so proud to look at what her work is for the day!
Elementary Work Boxes for Homeschool Organization
We made Goofy’s boxes by subject. I added a label to show if we do that subject daily or the particular day we do it. This helps not only Goofy, but Mommy stay organized. As I stated above, Goofy’s boxes are filled with books, curriculum, lapbooks, worksheets, or projects that we are working through in that subject.
