Learning how to homeschool using a homeschool workbox system has been extremely helpful for our day.
I highly recommend this post, ideas and free printables from Confessions of a Homeschooler.
I had been looking for a way to help the girls be more responsible for what they need to do each day. I also wanted a way that I could organize and prepare over the weekend for the upcoming school week.
Each subject has a drawer. The numbers are slightly out of order because I plan to mix up the order once and a while for them anyway.
Each week, I will give the girls a schedule of what they need to get done each day. I will update their boxes with what they need for that subject during the week. Then, they will be responsible to get it all done!
I also added breaks (15 minute and 25 minute) and a snack time.
Break ideas could be a puzzle, felt boards, magnet dolls, computer game, outside play… anything that gets them moving or a change of scenery for a bit!
So far, so good. Our whole family is happy with this new system.
Have you ever used a workbox system? In your learning how to homeschool, do you think this will help you get organized?
