I follow many different homeschool blogs and saw a cool idea for portable workboxes a few weeks ago. There may be times when we need/want to do our schoolwork away from home (when we are traveling, at a park on a beautiful day, etc.). I found some file boxes at WalMart for $5 each and they’re perfect! They hold lots of hanging files, have a strong handle, and even have a container section on top for pencils, scissors, etc. We had a “trial run” this morning since public schools had an early release day. Brendan loved the file system! Ryan did ok, but he’s not quite as independent with his assignments (that’s to be expected since he’s only 9 :)). Today we covered Science, Geography, Bible, Math, Language Arts, and the various workbox assignments.
