What’s In The Box Wednesday

This is my first ever post like this, and in fact my first post here in over a year!

I am in charge of homeschooling three little girls, ages 4, 5 and 5. They are all in Kindergarten this year and all learning the same things together. We have one set of workboxes that we work on together for school time. I work with them through every box, rather than looking for independent work right now. I’m sure that as they get a bit older and are fluent readers, we’ll be able to work on having more individual boxes, but right now, this system works really well for us.

Box 1: Pledge of Allegiance and Calendar Time
Box 2: First Language Lessons of the Well Trained Mind (Next lesson)
Box 3: Ordinary Parents Guide To Teaching Reading (Next Lesson)
Box 4: All About Spelling (Next Lesson)
Box 5: A Phonics Reader (each child reads a page in the story)
Box 6: Learning about Birds (Observing the feeder outside and reading about flight)
Box 7: History: Making bread like ancient Egyptians
Box 8: Draw. Write. Now.
Box 9: Read Aloud – Mary Poppins
Box 10: File Folder Game: Vowel Sounds

Nice work boxes. It does make it easier to do when all the children are sort of on the same levels.

I love the idea of one set of boxes. I have wished I could merge my 3year old and 5 year old many times but the 5yo needs to be challenged just a lttle bit more than that: We do have several boxes that I switch tho after lunch. Thanks for the post:)

    I am in the fortunate position that my twins are only 11 months older than my 4 year old. It’s pretty easy to just give the 4 year old a little extra attention to keep her up with her sisters. We did just have another little girl, so when she starts, we’ll have to rearrange things, but that’s a few years away! 🙂
