Pics of our workboxes

Usually there are 12 folders in my daughter's box. Today we a have a lighter load, so that's why there are only 10 and there are the 2 stars on the chart to block off the unused numbers.

Those look really nice! We are also doing the workbox system this year, so it's always fun to see how everyone else has theirs set up.

So, I had to laugh when I saw your boxes... because they're exactly the ones I picked up last week! A friend of mine is starting workboxes and so we compiled a bunch of stuff and made like 20 preschool activity bags. She was doing the little plastic shoebox in the bookshelf thing, and I figured I should get one of these boxes because they had room to do hanging files and that would work for us and our non-structured life because I could just toss all the activities in a folder and we could grab them out as we choose. Although, I have to say it's fun to see how you've adapted them to the workbox system. I'll have to keep that in mind if we feel like changing things up... I love that these boxes are so easy to move around, have a lid so not everything spills out with the daily blundering about, and it saves on space!
I hope this system continues to work out for you. Sorry to hear about Noodles math... she's a funny one! You'll have to do like a math scavenger hunt that ends in finding a treat of some sort. I know I could never turn down a bribe! (Unless it had something to do with getting myself and kids up and somewhere at a specific time everyday of the week, especially for a long period of time.... that'd have to be one seriously HUGE bribe that I don't think anyone can afford! :-). ) I look forward to reading more of your homeschool journal!
