What's in the Box?

I've decided to join up with "What's in the Box?" Wednesday at Confessions of a Homeschooler. The boxes listed here are actually from last week, but I'm just getting around to writing the post. To read more about our workbox system check out this post.

Preschool Workboxes

1. Leaf Addition Match - Lexy matched the leaves with simple addition problems with the leaves with their answers. 2. Our theme for the week was leaves. This box contained the book "Leaves! Leaves! Leaves!" We read the book. We also picked fresh leaves off of three trees. Then we observed the changes each day and learned why the leaves change colors. She colored the leaves and described the changes she saw each day.

3. Rhyming Card Game - She found picture cards that rhymed.

4. Story Notebook - We got out her story notebook. She used this to create her own story. Sometimes she cuts out pictures to use, and sometimes she draws her own pictures. She makes up a story to go with the picture, and I write it down.

5. "At" family game - Our phonics game of the week was an "at" family word game. She used the letters to create "at" words and match them with the pictures. She was reading CVC words for the first time! That smile shows how proud she was of herself!

6. Patterns - Lexy used small die cut leaves to create a pattern on the construction paper. We turned this into a leaf hat and glued a large die cut leaf on the front.

7. Fine Motor Skills - Lite Bright

8. Bible - Our Bible curriculum that we're using has puzzle sheets that go along with it. Lexy always enjoys doing worksheets.

9. Music- Her music box contained her books from her music class. She did her home assignments.

Tot School Playboxes

Here's a picture of Josiah's playboxes for the week. I didn't get individual pictures of them all.

1. Felt - Creating faces

2. Blocks - matching colors and shapes

3. Finger Puppets

4. Mr. Potato Heads

5. Building - Lincoln Logs

6. Fine Motor Skills - Lacing Beads

7. Counting - Number puzzles

8. Imaginary Play - Dinosaurs

9. Sensory - Clay

As you can tell, we are really enjoying our new workbox system!
