I tried the workbox system, but that was just too tedious for my son and by the time he got to the third box he would say "OK, I'm done!" So, how did I get him through the rest of the day... pretty much just playing and leaving the workboxes alone, otherwise I was in for a fight.
So, I transferred the workbox system into a daily folder and voila! it worked!!! I put all the activities for one into one folder and let him pick and choose what he wants to do in what order. To keep me sane, I compile a lesson plan of ALL the activities and then I break them down into a Daily School Schedule. Here is an example:
It's not the best picture, but it gives you an idea. I just use a different color manila folder for each day. I label them "Monday", "Tuesday", etc. instead of by date to keep it less expensive.
This system works the BEST for us and it saves me lots of time.
