This week we’re featuring a FREE Mini Office for our newsletter subscribers!
A Mini Office is basically a custom built learning resource for your student. Â The goal of a mini-office is to serve as a self led reference chart for children, freeing up time for teacher to work with other students and encouraging children to find answers to their own questions. Â The benefit of making a mini office is also in the size and the minimal supply list. Â All you’ll need is a couple of file folders, scissors, glue, and your printable pages. Â (Free Mini Office Printables Below)
To assemble your mini office simply cut the tabs off of two file folders and glue them back to back. Â This will create a three panel office. Â You can make a larger office if you want to include extra information, however I find that the three panel is useful for small hands and when it’s stood on end it makes a great privacy blocker. Â (This is especially helpful if you’re teaching around the kitchen table.)
Really you can add whatever resources you want your child to study. Â In a homeschool setting, I’ve found these reference folders to be helpful for PreK-3rd graders, but you could certainly use them with older children as well. Â You might consider ways to build your folder so that you can expand and adapt it as your child grows. Â Alternatively, you can create multi-leveled folders for each student year. Â The resources provided below can be adapted to suit your needs.
