I first read about Sue Patrick's Workbox Method through Heart of Wisdom. I'm a super visual person, and my little guy is, too. Turns out there's a bunch of different ways to workbox. Some folks repurpose cereal boxes or coordinate Dollar Store containers, but those people also have the gift of creativity, which I run low on sometimes.
I bought the ordinary, shm-ordinary plastic file boxes.
I thought the numbers and tags from Heart of Wisdom were simple and adorable so I printed and laminated them.
As you can see, I labeled each box with a number. Every day I load the card strip for the next day.
Flexibility is key. The world does not fall apart if we take lunch before completing box #2. The card strip serves merely as a guide, to help us see what we need to get done each day. Our goal is to take off all the cards at the end of the school day.
