Review: Sue Patrick’s Workbox System

Sue Patrick’s Workbox System
Pros: Very easy to use, super flexible, inexpensive, expandable, good for any number of students, great for visual learners and children with special needs
Cons: Can be difficult to decide what to fill your boxes with, does require some spaceI LOVE this organization system. The Workbox System is exactly what it sounds like, you use boxes to organize your daily lessons for your child. Everything they need is right there available to them and it is so simple to “reboot” your classroom at the end of the day to take out completed work, add new work and make any necessary changes for the next day. We are able to include much more independent work with this system and my daughter is very comfortable understanding and managing her work load each day. I would recommend this system for any home school family that wants to have both structure and flexibility as well as the desire to have independent work accomplished more easily by their children.

There are a number of resources and blogs of other who are using this system or a variation so I am finding lots of ideas to help me with workbox ideas, organization ideas, etc.  In future blog posts I will share what we fill our boxes with and any modifications I may make to have the system truly customized for our needs.

Here are some pictures of our workboxes and number strips:


About jreed1920

I am a mom to a beautiful daughter with Autism Spectrum Disorder. We started homeschooling in January 2010 and it has been the best educational decision we have ever made. We use an ecclectic curriculum combining online learning with lapbooking and lots of hands-on, natural setting learning. We use Sue Patrick's Workbox System to keep it all together.
