ABC BINDERS

As we began our alphabet last year we needed a very creative way to display our crafts. I found here at Pocketful of Posies that they created ABC Binders! What an awesome idea to have and hold on to till the end of the alphabet, and then send home to their parents as keepsakes.
As we created each craft they were placed in the binders. They are so very proud of their binders and brought them home this week. 
Soon we will start over with our alphabet and the binders again. I have almost all new children here at daycare. Only one child that is here has had the binder. And the new children are looking forward to it.

Below is the front of the binder. I printed this on cardstock and slipped into the front pocket. These are one inch binders with sheet protectors inside to hold the crafts. There are a few more than 26 of the alphabet. Sometimes we have two crafts to place inside, or I would place one of their worksheets in the binder.

Here are the crafts that are in the binders.
If you click on the link above the craft you can view the entire week of curriculum.
Or at least what I blogged, some things just do not make it here. :) 

















Thanks for visiting!

Lori I LOVE your binder! That is exactly what I have planned for this year w/my little Diva! I have our main letter crafts from this past year as well but we didn't do every letter so this coming year I really hope to complete our book! :)

so nice to see the completed list!!! The parents & kids will love this keepsake! what a fun thing to look back on in the future. I am so excited to be making mine with my youngest this year! :) I am going to make it like a mini portfolio highlighting the fun crafts we do for the letters. It will be a great way to display her work and keep it for years to come!
