Homeschool workboxes are a simple way to stay organized, create independence in your children, and have an easy system for all of your homeschool lessons.
We’re about 3 weeks into homeschooling our 4 year old preschooler. When I began looking for homeschool resources online I kept seeing “Work Boxes”. After seeing several web sites featuring workbox systems I knew it was perfect for me. Being the organized wannabe that I am, just seeing the photos with labeled boxes all lined up made me happy.
Making your homeschool workboxes
I promptly ran out to Target and found these boxes. I thought they were the perfect size for my preschooler. In hindsight, I would have shopped around to find a better deal. You can also repurpose something in your home to create the boxes. These weren’t the cheapest way to go!
I found the labels over at Homeschool Creations web site and printed them out.
The laminated labels held up well. I grabbed Laminating Pouches & Velcro dots last week on Amazon.com at a great price! I used velcro dots to adhere the labels to the boxes. I can switch out the labels easily.
Making Homeschool Workboxes Work for you
I’m not using these boxes the way that Sue Patrick intended when she came up with the workbox idea. I’m using them to simplify my planning. I tend to like everything very visual. It’s easy for me to look over and see what topics we are doing that day and Claire can run over and grab the box that she wants to do first. It’s simple and I love it!
