We are starting week four of our new learning year. It has flown by so fast. We have a new team working with Isaac, a good fit this time. So grateful for this season of ease in that area.
Ease is a blessing, my friends....one I am learning not to overlook or expect but be thankful for and appreciate. What a gift when something is EASY.
Eli's workbox using big truck numbers and the numbers written on the outside of the box so he can match them up.
This is my box with all the the things I need with me for each child. Sorry it's sideways no matter what I did it was uploaded this way. I love the top portion that holds different supplies that I and each child needs. No more "Where's my pencil?" or "I need glue!". They each have scissors, glue, color pencils etc in their bin. It really has produced more peaceful learning.
I reload these the night before or in the morning. It only takes a few minutes because I keep the next page in folders at the back of the workbox.
I am still up in arms about Mystery of History I. I bought it but am wondering if Ambleside Online might be a better fit for history. Believe it or not as long as I am reading a story aloud to Isaac he will sit so still. He is fascinated by stories. Over the past few years we have gotten away from narration and more simple natural learning due to the obstacles we faced in daily life. Workbooks became such a blessing during that time. Anyway, all just musings and thoughts for another post.
Links to where I printed my workbox grid and numbers. Enjoy!
Construction Numbers and Blank Grid (her site has other creative numbers as well)
Confessions of a Homeschooler is where I found other workbox material and some fun stuff for Eli to enjoy this learning year.
