I thought it might be a fun idea to give a look each week at one of the kids workboxes, to share ideas about how I am loading them, so today I will share with you what is in the crocodile hunter's 5th grade workboxes.
1 - latin flashcards, blank cards and colored pencils for adding new vocabulary words
2 - lively latin exercises
3 - math drill from Math on the Level, pencil, timer - he times himself and writes the time at the top of the page and turns it in to me
4 - strayor upton math book and pencil - this he will work with me to complete
5 - pattern blocks and 3 patterns to design
6 - Guns for General Washington - with a note indicating which chapters to read
7 - copywork and pencil - printed off from Evlogia
8 - Backyard Scientist experiment book, science experiment sheet, baking soda, tablespoon measure, cup, popcorn, vinegar - when he gets to here the little princess can stop what she is doing to observe
9 - Hooked on Drawing book, pencil, paper - instructions to do warm-up exercises
In addition to these assignments, his schedule strip includes morning time with everyone, piano practice and running on the treadmill. On Friday I am planning to post a schedule showing how I have incorporated the workboxes into our school day.
Anyone who wants to join me in this (sort of a workbox version of a weekly reporter), post a comment here linking to your post answering the question "what's in your workboxes today?" I am only going to list one child's contents each week, but you are welcome to share multiple kids if you wish (I didn't want this post to be too terribly long!)
