Workboxes

After seeing a friend’s picture on Facebook of her workbox setup for her homeschool, I was inspired to try it myself for our house. I had seen various posts around the internet about it, but always pretty much brushed it off because we live in a small house and currently only have one child in school.

Then I started thinking of how it might simplify things. Even though much of our curriculum is very mommy-involved yet (and as it should be for 2nd grade), I wondered how it might work for us. I also wondered how it would work with the My Father’s World curriculum (we’re doing Adventures this year, for those who are curious).

As I mentioned, we don’t have a lot of extra room around here. My solution was to get an old hanging file box, and dig out some empty hanging file folders. I printed the tags from Homeschool Creations, covered them in clear contact paper, and glued velcro to them. My goal was to figure out a system that could be put together with things we already had at the house.

The system looks good so far, but we’ll see how it goes. I’m hoping it will help keep Samuel motivated to finish a bit more, and am really hoping it makes our days go more smoothly!
