Okay, so I did jump on the Workbox System bandwagon. Ds3 has been using it this week. Here are my thoughts on the system so far.
- 1. It is pretty easy to set up, although buy more velcro then you think you will need. Just sayin’.
- 2. You can set this up without the book, but the book has lots of pics and reasons behind the whole system. Also little ideas that make a big impact. Otherwise it’s really geared toward beginning homeschoolers.
- 3. One of those ideas is putting everything the child will need for the assignment in the box…including pencils. This was like one of those "Ah Hah” moments for me. I can’t tell you how much time we have wasted looking for supplies for school work. I even went out and bought a ton of pencils so each box that needed one would have one.
- 4. Ds3 seems to really like it and ds4 wants to do it, too. I’m kinda doing a trial run right now but will definitely implement it for both children when we start our new school year.
So, all in all I am on board with this system. Sue Patrick is one smart lady. :)
