Workbox System Here We Come!

One popular organizational system floating around on numerous homeschool message boards is the Workbox System by Sue Patrick. I am so glad that I'm not the only one who needs some help organizing their school day! I have so many great ideas but I get sidetracked, forget I have the items, forget to check their work etc. This system is a visible way to help the teacher and the student know what to do during their day.

Right now I am working on customizing this system to work with my family's needs. I've decided to go with the racks, just because I feel like my kids need the actual visual reminder of the boxes. I still need to go get the boxes and print a few more things out, but I hope to have it up and running in our household after Easter. I'll post more about it then.

Here's an article called Working the Workboxes which lists different set-ups, links to free workbox printables and more.

So cool that you are going to do this! I have to say that if someone would have told me that one simple shoe rack and 12 boxes would have changed so much for us so long ago I probably would have laughed at them! But now that we have been doing for 3 weeks now I can't imagine doing it any other way. We are getting so much done and it's just wonderful to have that accountability for me. We love it! Love your cards here too! :)

Hey there.... I don't know you, but I've been searching for other mama's who are new to the WorkBox System (I LOVE LOVE LOVE them) and while I was reading your blog, my 9 month old saw dd#2's picture, and gave the screen a kiss... after I wiped the SPIT off the screen, I had to write you and let you know about the little sweet thing. Your daughter must have a great spirit around her... My lil'one doesn't give smooches to just anyone!

Good luck with the Workboxes! Hopefully, I'll get to start posting our box success stories soon.
