Weekly Workboxes

It's been a really low key week here as my mother in law has been to visit from out of town. We did workboxes twice this week, but unfortunately, I didn't have the forsight to take pictures of each box those two times, and school didn't happen Thursday and Friday due to my mother in law visiting.

However, I keep a record of what I put in their boxes each day, so I can list for you what was in the workboxes one day this week!

In Little Bean's boxes:
Box 1: Read Aloud--Curious George
Box 2: 100 Lessons
Box 3: Tactile bucket with puzzle pieces hidden inside. Bean is supposed to find the pieces and complete the puzzle
Box 4: Right Start Math--Recognizing 1 through 8 without counting and working with the Abacus
Box 5: Stamping
Box 6: Sustained Silent Reading
Box 7: Handwriting Without Tears--forming capital "E"
Box 8: 24 piece puzzle
Box 9: Explode the Code--Consonant Pretest

Miss O's Boxes:
Box 1: Read Aloud--Curious George
Box 2: Tactile Bucket with unpopped popcorn. Miss O finds foam letters in the popcorn and puts them in the correct place in the foam puzzle
Box 3: Explode the Code "M"
Box 4: Playdough, using twisting and pushing tools
Box 5: Handwriting Without Tears PK--Aim and Scribble
Box 6: Sustained Silent Reading
Box 7: Magic Pics--this is that special paper that you can write on with one marker and the picture will be colored in all sorts of colors
Box 8: Working with the Handwriting Without Tears tactile materials, forming capital "E"
Box 9: Tangrams

I was missing new posts from you!! I'm glad you guys got to spend time with your mother-in-law and get school in, too. I love the idea of the popcorn kernels and foam letters. Maddie would LOVE that and I will absolutely have to try it. Thanks!!

Your workboxes are so fun! We finally got all set up and joined in! I'll have to work on the fun factor, I realized that a lot of our boxes are workbooks, oh well.
