We are continuing to enjoy using workboxes in our homeschool. It is providing more structure to the day and I do think that it helps Emily to have a concrete view of all her assignments. The first thing Emily does every morning is to look in all of her boxes to see what she’ll be doing that day.
I am finding myself having to be a bit more vigilant, though, to make sure she “follows the system.” For example, this morning, she was working away and had completed several tasks. When I looked at her number board, I saw that she had completed tasks 2, 4, 8, 9, and 10. Hmmm.
I have also caught her re-arranging boxes and even adding things (like games). This mom needs to keep better tabs on her child!
The “school is in session” card hasn’t been used in a while either. This was an “extra” touch that I added for fun and has pretty much been forgotten about.
