A Workbox for a Big KidMy toddler is ill today, so I thought I’d focus on how I organize my older child’s daily work in a workbox instead of the little ones!

Raisin is in second grade this year. This is a difficult grade for me to get my mind around, simply because I know what he is capable of doing independently, but he does not always approach school with the confidence I know he can. He still needs parent guidance in getting all daily goals finished before the day is over! Thus, this year has still been parent intensive, more so than I would have liked. I need to be realistic, though: it is still second grade!

I track our learning in Scholaric, a web-based homeschool progress tracker. I don’t typically record how long things take, or what score my son gets. I just record what the plans are, and make a note of which things we actually accomplish. I can print it easily for my son.

I keep his books and papers in a cubby next to his desk.

Although this frequently becomes a mess, and some days we don’t even bother with a printed schedule, it’s nice that we can remain somewhat organized. I only wish I could make his workbox more exciting, like Strawberry’s are!

Every Wednesday, come here to link up your workbox/busy bag/busy box posts. If you cannot post it on Wednesday, don’t worry. The linky is open all month. So link up your workbox posts and let us know what you do to teach your kids and keep them busy. Please visit my co-hosts at Chestnut Grove Academy and Tots and Me as well! What is in your workbox this week?
