Organizing preschool supplies can be a daunting task, so today I am going to show you an easy way to get alphabet boxes ready for an entire year.
An alphabet box is a tool used to teach children sound recognition. There’s a container for each letter and inside each container are several objects, each beginning with the sound of that letter. To organize my alphabet boxes, I took 26 plastic tupperware dishes that I purchased at Dollar Tree (3 for $1) and placed an uppercase and lowercase letter in each one. These letters are bulletin board letters that I saved from when I was a classroom teacher. If you don’t have letters, you could write them on paper.
This makes my life so much easier! When it’s time to learn about a letter, we have our materials ready to go! To learn more about alphabet boxes, please see my alphabet page.
I also organize our printables for each letter in an accordion file. I found this one at Office Max for around $12. I love how easy it is to organize our printables.
