Sugar Plum was happy to use the boxes today. She set the order of the drawer colors herself and I am just glad they are not all wildly mixed up and it has a nice flow to the colors. Purple is her favorite so it got top billing.
Sugar Plum cart only has 10 drawers, but it works great for us for now.
Drawer #1 Daily Journal Writing & Drawing
Drawer #2 Beginning Sounds Worksheet
Drawer #3 Phonics Game
Drawer #4 Explode the Code Book
Drawer #5 Math Teaching Workbook Page
Drawer #6 Which Is Bigger? Dice Game
Drawer # 7 Do It Carefully Page (fine motor skills)
Drawer # 8 Pom Pom Sort in Groups of 10
Drawer #9 Piano Book Practice 10 minutes
Drawer #10 Read Book With Mom
Tiger Boy was thrilled to have boxes like his big sister. He worked quietly and even asked for more boxes when he finished them. I only got 4 because they were on clearance at Wal-Mart. I think I will have to check fore more since he loves them.
Here is a picture of the 4 workboxes I set up for Tiger Boy.
Box #1 Marble Sorting with a Spoon
Box #2 Coloring Sheet of our weekly theme
Box #3 How Many Dump Trucks Counting Game
Box #4 Paper, Scissors & Glue
(He could do whatever he wanted with them.)
Overall, it was a super successful day.
Tiger Boy did his work at the coffee table and had a blast with the marbles.
Sugar Plum really enjoys playing the games and has no clue that she is learning while playing.
So there you have it. Our first official day with workboxes. It was wonderful and I am looking forward to using them again tomorrow.
