My friend Chari's planning to do them. She makes it sound so good. My issues:
- It can't cost any $$$ or require anything we don't already have around the house.
- It has to actually be a plus for my homeschool or at least be entertaining for me; it can't complicate things or make me feel guilty.
Here is a link with visuals and more links.
It looks to me like they are compact workstations, either that or spatial-concrete checklists, or perhaps a form of structured strewing, depending upon how you go about it. Sue Patrick, the lady who devised the idea, did it for her autistic son so he'd have a concrete, visual way to see what he had to do for the day.
Chari and her family are visiting now and her blog post is still in the works but almost done now. In the meantime, I thought I'd brush up this very scattered post and publish it since this is what we are talking about right now!
More here that Chari found online and shared with me -- A Comprehensive Review of Sue Patrick's Work Box System. I found this -- there may be a lot of duplicate links but it's a pretty site.
We are also planning for next year while we're together. You know you're homeschooling moms when..... but it is more fun to write out plans when you are sitting out on the deck with a good friend whose kids are the same age.
