I have been investigating and tweaking a workbox system for our family home school and so far it has been a real positive move. I will go into it more another time (when we are a little more "tweaked") but here are a few workbox links that I found helpful.
For me I wanted an organisational system that more or less runs itself through the days and fits around the various mini-crises that seem to crop up in our house. I also wanted something that would work for toddlers right through to high school if I needed it too. This may or may not be a fit, it is worth checking out though.
