Our new workbox system

I decided my original way of doing workboxes just wasn’t working for me, too much in such a little box with too much stuff! Thankfully my husband’s work didn’t have any use for these drawer storage units so he grabbed for me to use. I like them because the drawers pull out all the way so when we do a subject, we pull out the drawer & place it on the floor which is where we do our homeschooling.
Our new way!
For my preschooler’s workbox
A big thanks to Homeschool Creations for her printable workbox tags. I also made a few more for additional subjects (Spanish & co-op) which I made with clip art. Then I laminated them. I made a simple flip book for us to move our tags to once the subject is completed for the day. Then I put velcro on the front of the drawers, back of the tags & on the tag flip chart. After each subject is complete then I will put the following days work in the box with the tags for each subject we will be doing on the front of each drawer.

For my toddler’s workbox

I am not using the workbox tags just yet, I still have time. He is only 2 years old. His system has 8 drawers so it’s set up for the whole week. I have 2 drawers for each day full of activities for him to do. And any additional activities I want to set up then I can add stuff throughout the week. His drawers pull out as well so all his supplies will be at hands reach.

With the storage shelf on the top I am able to place things on it that do not fit in the drawers. Such as crayons & jumping beans chip  game.

Here are a few examples of what’s inside my toddler’s workbox this week:

  1. Very nice! I love the tags! You are motivating me to finish mine! Later I will post up whats in mine.

  2. It looks like they turned our great. Thanks for sharing the link for those printable tabs. I already have my workboxes set up my way using magazine holders and some tabs I made myself but these tabs have pictures so they will be fun to use for my preschooler who is now asking for workboxes too.

  3. I love this! I have a 3 and 4 year old that I’m trying to set up the system for. Thanks for the pics!

  4. Glad to help! If you blog take a pic & add it to the what’s in your workbox McKlinky. 🙂
