Alphabet Activity Storage

If you downloaded my Letter Of The Week curriculum, you're probably asking yourself what the heck to do with it all now...so, I'm not sayin' this is the best answer, but its what I do for storage: I already had these plastic bins from Lakeshore, so I used them. I think that hanging file folders would be good, or even a large Rubbermaid bin. You could also use Manilla Envelopes instead of file folders. For the individual letter games, I use ziplock sandwich bags to keep all the game pieces separate. Then I put all the activities for one letter into a file folder, label it with the letter, and store all of the letter folders in a plastic bin. I also take out the rings I use to bind the little pre-writing books etc, so I can re-use them on other letters. Plus they're bulky to store. That way when we get to a letter, I just pull out that folder and all the activities are right there. All these containers are stored nicely in my homeschool room armoire for easy access. I've had … [Read more...]
