Monday was our first day using Sue Patrick's Workbox System and it went great! Our plan is to do the workboxes Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursdays we are going to focus on Five In A Row and take Friday off. I worked with Ellie pretty much the whole time to teach her how to use the system and she was very excited!! I am trying to use it how Sue recommends (except I am using 9 drawers instead of 12 boxes) and then I can tweak it however needed as we go along. Here is what our workboxes look like:Here is what I put in the boxes on day one in no particular order: (I tried to mix a good variety of easy in because I didn't want to overwhelm her or me the first day!)
Valentines books with snack (Cookies for the first day because I am a cool mom:) )How to Build an A: Letters A, B, CCounting WorksheetPuzzleLacing CardReading Lesson (which I am not loving)Sequencing CardsPutting the numbers 20-29 in order
I think this system is going to work great for us and really keep me on my toes!
