We have been using workboxes since August 2013. The boxes have helped the boys to work more independently on their work and be more confident in what they are doing each day. Blogs about our workboxes may be a little boring to some but I love being able to look back and see what all we have done during the year. Here is a post of the first time we used the workboxes.
Now down to business :-) What's In The Box for Wednesday.... (Aidan's - age 8 is on the left and Noah's - age 6 is on the right)
Box 1: Draw To Learn - The Life Of Jesus (This is the boys independent Bible study time, however I do help Noah with reading from the Bible.)
Box 2: Owls In The Family (reading four chapters and a reading comp sheet), Noah will be working on answering questions from the book Little Toot he read the day before. (pictured is his reading workbook)
Box 3: Teaching Textbook 4 & Saxon Math 2 (LOVE both of these math programs! Teaching Textbook is great for a child who likes to learn on his/her own and Saxon is more of a teaching hands-on math program.)
Box 4: Aidan will be completing his next lesson in First Language Lessons 3. Noah is reviewing what he has learned so far in The Ordinary Parents Guide To Teaching Reading and he wants to read a little picture book, Waddle that he found at the library.
Box 5: Copybook Cursive Scripture & Poems (practicing his cursive handwriting) and a map worksheet from The Complete Book Of Maps & Geography
Box 6: The Story Of The World, Ancient Times (We are almost finished with this history and we will be moving on to the middle ages soon!)
And all of my teacher books and planners out and read to teach tomorrow!
I truly do love using the workbox system. As you can see from the pictures above we do not complete every subject daily, we like to mix it up a bit.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!
But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
