The Work Box System

My new friend Angie mentioned The Workbox System at our homeschooling group Tuesday night. It sounded great! I did not research the whole system. Instead, I just got a few boxes and separated Aiden's schoolwork out between them. When he has gone through all the boxes he knows he is done with school. It lets him know where he is at and how much more there is to do. Eventually I want to add chores and other things to their boxes, but for now I am starting with the basics. I went with the modular latch boxes that stack together (from Wal-mart).

I'm also posting a picture of some tall skinny file boxes that might work well for some (from Office Max).

Thanks so much for sharing. I had heard about this somewhat, but had not taken time to research it. I'd be curious to see how your boys like it!

Sure! Aiden loved it! I look forward to developing it a bit more. If you look at Angie's post about it (that I linked to) you'll see that she does a lot more than I have and it is really cool! I may try more of her ideas later (like the frame). Take care prego momma!
