Can I ask you post pics of your workboxes (or your version of it). I'm way to inquisitive for my own good, LOL.

I'll post our first

I don't have space for the "traditional" workboxes, so I use document shelves



Our "timetable"



You can see more information on our workboxes here

These aren't my ideas, but a blog I frequent uses work boxes with her school aged child-
1+1+1=1: Workboxes

And she uses tot trays for her little one-
1+1+1=1: Tot Trays

She used little bins for her work boxes which I thought was interesting and would also take less space. She's waaaay more organized than me!

I will be glad to post mine after my cubbies are built! It may be a few weeks, but I will be sure to share either here or on my blog.

I love her site. In fact, my labels for my "workboxes" come from her

Wow, this is really inspiring! I'm looking at all the links and photos and I'm really interested in the concept! I didn't quite get it at first, but now I do. Thanks for sharing the pictures/links!

Mine are like Heather's. Just hanging file folders with each child's name on the tab. I have 2 sets, one for work to be done and one for completed work. I am thinking about doing the workboxes when we move bc we are hoping to find a house that will allow the room for an official school room.
