Workboxes – Large Family Style

I have not done a workbox post for a very long time. Too long. We are easing in to a new way of doing workboxes and I have not figured it all out yet. What I can tell you is that the kids have crates now. The bottom shelf is missing from the picture above (it contains my mama crate and Zion’s crate). Right now the crates are acting as a storage bin for each child’s work, but I want them to be so much more. I am scouring through the Workbox Blogroll to see the ways other mamas are modifying …

Working Our Workboxes

This year we are using our workboxes for our various subjects and it is working well. We are using Bob Jones for most of our subjects and we are loving it. It is way more work than we are used to, but the layout is good and it is nice to have a stopping and starting point each day. I like having a teacher’s manual with more information (than I could ever need) and all the answers for those days when my brain is feeling old and tired. Most of the workboxes have: at least one student workbook a teacher’s …

Workbox Weekly

This is what we have been up to this week… We spent most of the week outside in the yard because the weather has been so nice. The kids really enjoyed digging in the dirt. Hosanna discovered worms.

The kids were just having too much fun outside. The boys found a caterpillar and made a bug jar. They have been having fun watching it and Jonah took these awesome pictures. …

Welcome! I am so glad to have you visiting here today. Have you visited the Workbox Blogroll yet? Are you listed over there?

Leave me a note in the comments if you are not listed on the Workbox Blogroll. I purchased Sue Patrick’s Workbox system last fall and for me, I am glad that I bought it.

Little Bitty Learners – Tot Basket

I stumbled on this idea last week and wanted to save it for my post about my Little Bitty Learners. I have been trying to figure out a simple way to do more (planned) activities with the twins (almost 2). I am visual. If something is hidden away, I will forget about it. So, when I saw this idea, I thought it was amazing and just the solution that I needed. It would allow me to plan ahead, be organized, and have a visual reminder of activities that I wanted to do with the twins. I want to introduce you …
