I think almost everyone in the homeschool community knows what workboxes are. In case you are unfamiliar, here is the link: Sue Patrick's Workbox System
I used this system before, when the girls were younger (until Three got big enough to crawl and continually drug the boxes down.) I recently decided to give the system another shot with Three. So far, it's gone really well. I set up his boxes, and we work through them together. Most of the time, I still have to sit with him-but that is sort of the nature of his current books, AND just his personality. I'm working on it with him, but it's a process. As are most things.
Some of the things in our boxes:
1. BOB Book.
2. Magic Treehouse book (I read these to him, and Four.)
3. Read and Learn Level Kindergarten
4. File Folder Game: Math, and Phonics (so, two boxes)
5. Explode the Code workbook
6. A preschool reading workbook
7. Math worksheet
9. Handwriting work/Scissor work
Normally a workbox system will have 12 boxes, when we start 1st grade, we will jump up to a full 12 load. Since it's mid-year, and we are just starting with the system, I have opted to do 9. I vary the order of the work each day, so it isn't quite so repetitive. He likes finishing one box and going to get the next. Steps in the right direction.
