I am going to be joining in this weekly post on the blog Aussie Pumpkin Patch. I think this will help me remember to post what we are doing each week and it's a lot of fun. :) Please check out Kendra's blog to see more great workbox ideas.
Also here are the pictures of how we are using the workbox system right now. This is a hanging file folder box. Each activity has it's own file. She takes the files out in order to work on. As she finishes she puts her work and file on the cabinet. I try to get the files filled again each night. She really enjoys them, I think because it gives her responsibility.
Here is a list of things Meghan will find in her workboxes this week.
-Hooked On Phonics (Meghan will be reading the readers in Level 2, but she has surpassed this level so we will see where she is in Level 3)
-Math U See (She has 8 lessons left in this level)
-Starting Farmer Boy Unit Study (this weeks topics will cover learning about New York, Snow, several types of Trees,Wool and possibly some baking)
-State maps workbook -the page on New York
- Making snowcones to use in learning about snow (we'll eat them and make our own snowcone syrup)
-Nature walk to find trees in unit. Draw trees.
-madlib type games, fill in the nouns and adjectives
-money file folder game
-Future Christian Homemakers (this week she will learn about eggs and safety in the kitchen)
-create your own calendar pages
I am sure there will be more little activities and art things but this is the majority of what we'll be doing this week. Kaden has some tree coloring pages to color, a puzzle to play with and some counting beads.
