This sentence may make me sound like a complete nut job – but the summer it the perfect time to work on some task boxes. Mix yourself a big pitcher of lemonade (or margaritas? hey it is summer!), throw on the netflix, open the windows and relax with a little work task box making. It is my firm belief you can never have too many work box tasks. And although it may be tempting to 110% check out this summer – you will thank yourself for getting a few tasks made. This will be the make or break component in having a successful fall. Work boxes are essential because you have GOT to keep those kiddos busy and working while you are doing other things like – dealing with new behaviors, teaching new students the routine, showing students how to follow their schedule, training staff … you know, just those minor things on your to do list.
I have loads of resources for Work Task Box Ideas & will share some brand spankin’ new ones here too. First off, be sure to check out my Pinterest Board – Word Tasks:
Also check out my 40 Work Task Mega Pack. This resource does all of the heavy lifting for ya. It gives you a shopping list (dollar store approved), instructions for setups, and all necessary visuals for 40 awesome work tasks.
