We have climbed aboard the Sue Patrick Workbox Sytstem and enjoying the ride. I loved to organize and this seemed right up my ally. This is what ours looked like at the end of the day. A complete mess, yes, but it was quickly righted and set for the next day.

This is my breakfast room in this small house. It will be getting a little overhaul this weekend and I will post some pictures next week. I feel a trip to IKEA coming.

C has 12 boxes and we roughly fill about 9 of them a day. This week we are stressing reading, so I have laid off some other subjects. We are not done with our year by any standards, we are just laying a little low.

J has 6 boxes at 4 yrs old. We do 3 and take a break and then do 3 more. He is adamantly against all schoolwork and so everything has to be a tricky. If it looks like schoolwork he is headed out of the door.

I keep some of the boxes prefilled. For example, we have a play dough box, a sorting game with colored pom poms, tweezers, and a egg carton, dot markers, colors, etc. i just pull out the box that I want to add, mostly to J's day, and add the number.

You can order the book as an e-book, which I highly recommend and see what all the hoopla is about. You can also see a list of other bloggers that use the workbox system over at Cheeky Monkey. Enjoy.

This system is exciting isn't it? I like how it reduces the constant question of what next (in my mind mostly) and allows my son to see his progress. Hope you were able to get the area how you wanted it. Blessings
