Each of the folders originally only had 8 pockets,
so I bought a few extra folders, took the comb
binding off, and added a few extra pocket pages
so they all had 12 pockets.

The inside folders are clear. If something that
we are doing doesn't fit into one of the folders
{a puzzle, a manipulative, or a 'hands-on
lesson'} the kids have a have their own special
box for oversized items {see picture below}.

When they finish what is in the pocket, they
remove the number from their number strip and
match it to the same number in their folder. If
there is another tag on that page already {see
the picture tagged 'folder page for spelling'
above} they return the extra cards to a basket
for me to sort later.
Our first year using workboxes we used the
traditional numbers and number strips. This
worked somewhat for us, but eventually the
numbers were laying all over our house
{thanks to a certain little preschooler} and it
was driving us all a little crazy.

For the next year, we switched things up a
little bit and replaced our number strips, but
still used the workfolders ~ since they worked
great for our family!
Those big and bulky items need a place to be
stored for the kids to find. Kaleb's workboxes
follow along with the traditional setup and
his shelf has 12 boxes. Four of the boxes are
oversized. Kaleb's school things are in the top
8 boxes and if there is a puzzle or special
game the older kids need to work on, they
find them in the bottom 4 boxes.

The workbox activity cards I made include a
variety of subjects and activities including
outdoor activities and special trips. There are
also 'help' cards and minute cards for timed
activities such as computer or reading.
Overall, there are a total of 72 picture cards,
20 minute cards, and 8 blank cards.

Enjoy them! Don't forget the
fun preschool
workbox number cards for your little ones!
Our activity cards are stored in a
simple pocket chart that hangs in one
of our cupboards
