I decided that it was time to do some organizing here at The Palace. I was inspired by this post at My Three Little Lights. Since I have a preschooler and not a gradeschooler that I home teach I adapted her work boxes to fit our situation.
So I have 3 daily activities in shoe boxes and 1 quiet time box. (We only have 3 activity boxes because we are out and about on Monday and Wednesday mornings at this stage of our lives).
The four boxes stack nicely under a table in my living room. They have such cute patterns and the were a great deal on sale at Michaels.
So I have my week planned out with a different activity in each box. (our unit study this week is farms)
Day 1- All of the necessary materials to make cotton ball sheep.
Day 2- Empty. We are headed on a farm field trip that day.
Day 3- A premade book that we will fill with pictures of our farm tour.
Quiet Time- That's Not My Tractor board book and Little People farm animals, tractor and farmer.
I love systems! I am so excited to implement this one.
That said I am totally on the look out for more quiet time ideas so please leave me a comment with what you would put in a quiet time box. (It does not have to be farm related).
