After I found the idea for an Alphabet Box on Counting Coconuts I went right out and purchased a container from Walmart. As soon as I got home I started filling it with miniature objects that begin with each letter of the alphabet.
Here is what I have collected for the letter a ~ apple, ant, alligator, and ax.
I finished filling the box and set it out in our school room. My original plan was to introduce a letter each week ~ guess I shouldn’t have left the box where the kids could get it. They have been exploring and playing with the box all week. Emily has been playing school with Aiden, having him trace our sandpaper letters with his finger and say the sound each letter makes. He loves to play with sissy so I have just let her take the lead and be teacher during some of our school time.
