This week I wanted to share some more details about what currently goes in the girls' workboxes each day. Typically, each day's boxes will contain the following:
Workbox 1: Handwriting
Currently their handwriting consists of copywork for the Little Lads & Ladies of Virtue curriculum and...
...our weekly memory verse. This week we are playing catch up so we didn't have a new My Father's World memory verse. We are learning about trees though, so I decided to have them learn a few verses from Psalm 1. When we don't have a student sheet to use for memory copywork, I will write the verse for them and have them copy it into their handwriting notebook.
Workbox 2: 100 Chart
Each day we actually have "lesson time" we have a number of the day they are to write on their 100 chart. We have been using MFW 1st grade for 20 days worth of lessons to date.
Workbox #3: Math
This week the girls' math is coming from the Complete Book of Math that comes with MFW. Fortunately we have the 2 bigger cereal boxes, so each girl can have 1 for bigger books. I will write their assignments on a piece of cardstock that I place in the first page they are to complete.
Last week they also had some math to go with our Poppins Book Nook unit from Martina the Beautiful Cockroach.
Workbox #4: Manipulatives
Recently we have been reviewing several products from Learning Wrap-Ups and I have been placing them in the girls' 4th workbox.
They may get a couple of actual learning wrap-ups, one math and one vocabulary.
I may just put a slip of cardstock in the workbox telling them to work on their Learning Palettes.
The reason they get a slip of cardstock is because the Learning Palettes are too big for the cereal boxes.
What is in your workboxes?
