Workbox Wednesday ~ Our NEW Workboxes!

We have been using Sue Patrick's Workbox System for about a year now and LOVE it. However, after coming across a couple dilemmas we have had to make some changes.

Dilemma 1. We are lacking storage for our math manipulative and art supplies.
Dilemma 2. We like to school outside and on the go (traditional workboxes are NOT portable)!

So after looking around at Homeschool Creations and at Heart of Wisdom I have come up with what I HOPE will be our solution (the first 2 weeks have been great)!

You can see that our new workboxes are similar to the "workfolders" on the Homeschool Creations site!
(She also has free workbox printables)! Now our workboxes are portable and I have storage space for our math manipulative and our art supplies!

  1. I kinda like this idea! I've been trying to think of ways to incorporate workboxes next year but don't really have the budget or space to buy a thing of drawers or something. The folders is something I may play off of. Thanks for the idea!
