Here's how it works.
Each kid has their own set of 10 drawers. In each drawer I put a different activity/worksheet/project, etc. There are numbers labeled on the outside of their drawer. They start at the top and once they are done with whatever is in their drawer, they take their number from that drawer (its velcroed on) and place it on their chart. They, then, move onto the next! The famous line around here is "Ready, Set, To your workboxes!"
They like this concept so much that I have came up with a brilliant idea!!!...I've included their chores right into their workboxes! I sneak a job or 2 into their drawers, and they complete it just as they would any other task. This limits the amount of complaining about doing chores I hear and also makes for everything around the house that needs to be done (school and cleaning) done at the end of the workboxes! I even included a "clean up your work area" card for their last drawer to remember to tidy up their spot before leaving the room. It works great.
Here are a few pictures...
T, C, & B's workbox charts on the wall. After the 4th drawer is completed, I have a "15 min break & potty time" square on their chart so once they get to that, they know what to do. I also keep a box with their own crayons, pencil, glue, glue stick, dry erase marker, and scissors next to them for easy access.
The boys' drawers. Ariella's is along the other wall.
"clean bathroom"--love this one! :)
