A few months ago, as I was perusing Pinterest (seemingly my most favorite thing to do) I came across the most amazing idea for my preschool-aged daughter. A write wipe workbook filled with practical pages to help her learn her acb's!
At the time, she was having some difficulty recognizing her numbers and letters, and her handwriting looked more like scribble than anything (and this was after an entire year of preschool too!) We were soon to be heading out on a 10+ hour trip to South Carolina, so I decided to light the fire under my rear and get this together for her so she could use it while on the road. Oh my, and I so very glad I did!!
1. Sheet protectors
2. 3 ring binder (size depending on how much you plan to "stuff it"!!)
3. Workbook sheets
4. Dry erase markers (preferably the ones with the erasers on the caps!!)
My luck, I just happened to have purchased a huge workbook for her a month before, so I got down and dirty with pulling out all the relevant pages, and gathered together the sheet protectors and binders I've had lying around now for nearly 14 years (from my college days)...
I'd wished that I had a presentation binder so that I could have made it more "pretty" like I did with my other binders. One day I'll upgrade! Maybe even make a new binder as my she progresses through the grades and hand this one down to my son! But, with working with what I had, here is the finished binder...
Simple, easy and CHEAP!! Especially if you already have the binder and protectors lying around the house!! You could even throw in a pencil pouch to keep the markers handy. I love the ones with the erasers already built in...reminds them to erase when they're finished. But, kids will be kids and forget to erase so all you have to do it wet a paper towel and you're good.
Again, I can't say it enough how completely useful this project is, especially if you have preschoolers! It's so adaptable that you can update the worksheet based on the age of the child, or even for your household needs! I've also made a menu planner and recipe binder!
Are you going to make one for your kids? Or how about for your household? If you do, send me your pictures! I always love to see what you all have made!!
