Bible Verse Box

You'll need a divider for each book of the Bible for this box. As you come across a verse you would like to memorize, or meditate on, write it down:

John 3:16

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

Memorizing it this way will allow you to automatically hear the verse in your head if only the reference is given. The same is true if you only hear the verse—you'll automatically think of the reference at the end! Write just the reference on the back, for quizzing yourself.

Lesson Plan Box

How you set up this box will depend on what curriculum you use. Here are a few ideas:

Daily Lessons: Place the date at the upper right of the card. List the various lessons you will be teaching, such as Math- p.86, Spelling- p.27, History- pp.172-177, Science- pp. 205-210, Penmanship- John 3:16, Reading- 10 pages, etc. As your child completes the activity, allow them to initial and date it on the card. This gives you a hard copy of exactly what was completed each day.

Unit Studies: Use large, 4"x6" cards for this. Write out your objective for the day, and at the top of the card list the classes the activity will cover. For example, if you are building the Tabernacle, you would list Bible, History, and Art.

Weekly Lessons: Have one card for each subject for the week. List the assignments to be completed, and check them off as you go. Note the dates covered at the top of the card. You can combine subjects that only take place once or twice a week onto one card.

School Box

This box makes a great catchall for those tidbits of fact and trivia that you learn during life. Divide the box into subjects like math, reading, science, history, etc. As your child learns different things, record the info on a card and file it under the appropriate heading. Things like multiplication tables and prime numbers can be listed and stored in the math section; books that have been read, or that you want to read, can be listed in the reading section; and important dates and events can be kept in the history section. Homework can be listed on a card at the front of the box, noting the date due, the class it's for, and the child who needs to do the assignment.

You can also use the box to hold vocabulary words. The example below shows Latin root words created to accompany the book English from the Roots Up

Writing Box

If you have a home business, such as writing, you'll get great use out of index boxes! Use alphabetical dividers, and one card (or more, stapled together) for each magazine or publisher. As you submit articles and queries, list it on the card. Be sure to mark the editors response, publication date and payment as well. Or, still using alphabetical dividers, write a summary of each article on the front of a card with publication info on the back. Again, keep track of publication dates and payment.

Another idea, for non-fiction writers, would be to create characters. Use dividers labeled with the gender and age range of the characters in each section. On the cards, list physical attributes, personality quirks, character traits, etc.

For home businesses that involve selling, use the box for your client and contact list. Color-code the tops of the cards so you can easily identify who you sell to and who you buy from--use the backs of the cards to list favorite purchases of customers, or supplies that contacts provide.
