Workbox Wednesday ~ Link-up


Workbox Wednesday

*AND*

Chestnut Grove Academy

Have you checked out Chestnut Grove Academy's blog? 
If not, shame on you! ;) Jen has a great blog! 
I don't want to give away too much but, 
She has giveaways and does reviews. 
Also, we are putting together a Blog Hop for Thursdays (stay tuned)!

Normally I alternate between Preschool, K/1 and 6th Grade workboxes but, this week we are doing something different. That is why we homeschool, right? So we can mix it up when we want/need to? I haven't been feeling well the past month or so and our home is starting to look/feel like mom has been on vacation. Then, on Saturday, I was having trouble planning our week and couldn't figure out why. I have 9 reviews and a giveaway coming up in October and was starting to feel overwhelmed. So, I decided that we will only be doing Religion, History, items that are up for review AND a week of cooking and cleaning! Also, Unicorn will continue with Math (since this is her weakness).

    Sure! In a nutshell, workboxes are containers (usually bins) where you put your child's work for the day. The concept is that as they go through and complete each assignment, they can see exactly what they have completed and what is left for the day. When all the workboxes are empty they are finished for the day. At the top of my blog is a Workbox tab, please click it and you will be taken to my workbox page. On that page you will see a link to Sue Patrick's website (she is the creator of workboxes) and also a link that shows all my past posts about workboxes. I hope this helps. Please contact me if you want/need more information! :)
