They’re actually file folders that are covered with helpful information and used a la cubicles for your students. They have also been on my to do list for a while, but there are only so many hours in the day. (I do have my eye on some free time during Spring Break though.)
Being the Mom of a child with Autism, I thought that mini offices would be perfect for his visual learning, and hopefully cut down on some frustration of not always being able to easily come up with some facts off the top of his head. I also hope that seeing some facts over and over (visually) would help him commit them to memory.
And, then last night while looking around, I found another great resource from Jimmie from One Child Policy Homeschool on Squidoo. Here is the motherload of information on Mini Offices. This just may be what throws me over the edge into definitely needing to do it! Wish me luck!
Do you use mini offices or other types of graphic organizers for your children? What works for you and what doesn’t?
