I stopped telling you what was in the boxes each day so I’ll give you a bit of an overview of what we’re doing and how I’m organized.

I have several bookshelves of school books but in our daily school area I have a shelf of all the books we are currently using. I also have a box filled with workbox fillers – scissors, glue, markers, pens, pencils, and erasers.
Also a plastic bag for each kid of sign language and reading words they have mastered. I fill Tackler’s boxes from the main box of cards, and fill Prince’s boxes from Tackler’s mastered cards. Eventually all the cards will be in Prince’s mastered bag.
In this box I also keep other small materials I might want to fill their boxes – little projects or games I create. Next to this box are larger papers we want to work on (mostly lapbooks).

As an example, here are today and tomorrow’s boxes. For more detail, visit this post.
