The children and I have just implemented a new-to-us organizational system for our homeschool work. It's called the workbox system and works marvelously! It keeps us well organized (which I love!). Each of the children have their own set of workboxes where their books and workbooks go for each subject (the subjects we do together such as Bible and Music are kept with me).
For the past couple years, I had a box (and lid) for each child to keep their schoolwork in. This has worked decently for us...however some of the boxes (mostly of two-silly-boys-I-know) were attracting random paper clips, erasers, broken crayons and the like in the bottoms of their boxes. This made it messy. When getting out one workbook and putting one back in the box, they would get their pages bent and sometimes ripped. We just needed a better way! When I saw THIS post, I found our answer!!! We don't need a workbox planning sheet as she does...ours is mostly for organizational purposes. I keep track of what subjects are done by making little x's by each finished lesson in our planners.
We keep our crayons, colored pencils and markers (of which we have..um...a few) ever ready on the workboxes!
The boxes aren't exactly beautiful dining room decor...but that's okay. This is my season of life right now and to keep them in the *freezing cold* (which is the very reason we don't do our schooling in there) school room is just silly because then the children would be going in and out between each subject. It works and I am glad! :)
