Workbox Highlight: Active Activity Cards

workbox activity cardsI am still tweaking some things with our workboxes this year--trying to make it so that refilling and recording keeping go easier for me. Having a 2yr. old and a 1 yr. old sure makes for interesting school days. If I have the boxes completely set-up for the older 3, if one of the younger ones is really needing more of my attention, I'm able to give it and not feel like I'm dropping the ball with the others. Of course this is requiring me to be extremely organized and I'm not there yet--lol! So today I'm reworking something, printing, laminating, cleaning etc.

One of the things I really like about the workboxes is that I can plan extra activities, especially active activities into my kids' day. Before I would forget, or get distracted, but now I have some of those activities on their schedule cards. I wanted to showcase a set of cards that Candace Crabtree created on Homeschool Share that I think are a wonderful addition to our schedule.

Love these, snagging them for the next PE activities post on ABC & 123. Also wanted to let you know I put the apple activities that I asked you about earlier in Thursday's post on ABC. I don't know if I'll get around to posting them on my own blog but wanted to make sure people knew about them. So I put them in the thematic post. Hope that's okay too!
