Sometimes I see an idea on Pinterest...and there is just no stopping until I have used it. This is one of those times. I saw this storage box idea.
I thought about the letter tiles
that I use at the beginning of the year for names and just knew I needed a similar storage box. For one thing, it will be so much easier for the kids to find the letters they need. I also love the idea of the kids learning to put the tiles back in the appropriate sections.
I found it at Jo-Ann's today. It was $7.99 (less my 15% teacher discount). It's a Jewelry Designer NO SPILL Organizer by Darice. We sure will test the NO SPILL part... but it really does close securely. It has 32 sections (so a few will be empty).
I added these stickers (both inside the compartments and on the lid). I like associating a beginning sound photograph with the letters.
And here it is
I was surprised to realize how many of some of the letters I have. I know I have at least two sets but previously they were all dumped in a plastic shoe box. I will probably put some of them away to improve the odds that the kids put them into the right compartments.
