Posts Tagged ‘mini offices’


What is a mini office? Very simply, it is a handy-dandy portable visual reminder. It can sit on a desk or on the floor or be carried along in the car. It can be personalized to provide reminders, tips, and tools that the student needs. It can be made in lots of different ways using poster board or file folders, for example. It can be made large enough to serve as a study carrel or small enough to fit in a workbox or be carried easily.

I chose to make two mini offices for Dana. One is to help him with writing and one is to help with math. Mine are made by fastening file folders together with double sided tape. They have different helps on each side. The math mini office has facts charts, hundred chart, ruler, number line, math symbols and words, Roman Numerals, etc. The writing mini office has alphabets in manuscipt and cursive, punctuation, parts of speech, writing checklist, spelling rules, and how to write a paragraph on one side, writing and proofreading helps on the other. The writing mini office also has some empty space for new spelling rules as they are learned.  Have a look at the pictures to see how I put them together. If you Google “mini offices”, you can find lots of directions , examples and downloads to help you make your own.
