The folders are a heavy duty plastic (there should be a link in the post showing ones that are similar to what we have) and then there are multiple pockets inside that you can flip through, just like a book. I took two of those plastic ones apart and put them together with a larger comb binding.
Thanks! That explains it for me!
I have free printable workbox downloads here: http://www.confessionsofahomeschooler.com/workbox-printables
When my kids were younger we used the cards but now that they’re older we don’t use them. They kind of became a nuisance and the kids got tired of having to do the cards so I stopped using them. I think it’s kind of up to you and what your kids need as reminders based on their age
Now they just go though their drawers and put finished work on my desk to grade. I also print out their assignments on a weekly sheet and they cross off the items as they go.
Hope that helps! Erica
@erica, thanks for the printables and thanks for the suggestion! I’m doing my first trials with workboxes, I think my kids will love the cards. I will see how much cards I can manage . I appreciate you reply! Thank you very much!
