Oh, there are too many ideas out there.

I have been searching for ideas on how to implement work boxes, ideas on teaching the letters and sounds, and I have come to the conclusion that I can not follow anything anyone does! LOL

There are some really great ideas out there, especially over at Confessions of a homeschooler.
She has great ideas for implementing work boxes and she has her own letter of the week curriculum too!

I am just going to have to be creative and not worry about getting everything perfect, and just do it.
I am going to have to just use my own imagination and make stuff up! HA

I don't have time to look and print and and get supplies, etc..

So, I need to just be creative and start my own letter of the week system.

It will be better than nothing, which is all that I will accomplish, if I just keep looking and never start doing, right?

I am thinking of making an alphabet tree, like the one I saw on someones blog, I think it may have been over at confessions, but not 100 percent sure.

Anyhow I like that idea and I think that will work a little better for my son to make smaller letters, rather than big.

I guess I will use my imagination as to the activities.

I will ask my 5 year old for input, and I think that will be fun.

I don't know, I just hate all of the workbooks, and flashcards and stuff and want to make it fun.
He struggles with this area, so I do not want to push it at all.

I will let you know how it goes. Wish me luck!!!

I've had a hard time figuring out the ins and outs of workboxes too. I do my own letter of the week and incorporate things I may find or just make it up as i go along. I do the letters in the same order as OPG since we use that for our phonics. I think I have a post on my blog about K4 and K5 curriculum.

It was really interesting to look over all of the curriculum I used back in 2011!  Check it out . It may be useful in your curricul...
