It has been a while since I’ve talked about how we use workboxes, so I figured now was as good a time as any. We have used workboxes from the beginning of our homeschool journey and they are a lifesaver! It helps the students and the teacher to stay organized! This is Brendan’s tower. As he works through each box, he places his completed assigment in the bottom drawer and moves the number from that box to the “completed workboxes” sign. I’ll share a day of Ryan’s assignments next week.
Fridays tend to be “light” days for us, but here are the assignments that Brendan had today (just to help give you an idea of how we use our workboxes):
Box #1: A quick art lesson on how to draw castles.
Box #2: Reading assignment from Story of the World and a grammar activity on prepositions.
Box #3: After brainstorming topics for his report yesterday, today’s assignment is to begin researching and collecting information.
Box #4: A small reading assignment and activity from Medieval Times.
Box #5: Grammar review
Box #6: Assigned reading (Brendan also reads novels of his own choice at night and is currently reading the Left Behind series)
Box #7: Today’s spelling assignment – we use Spelling Power and Spellingcity.com
Box #8: A math assignment using Teaching Textbooks
Box #9: Guitar practice
Here are a few pictures of our castle activities for the week – FUN!!!
