Alphabet Organization

This year we are going to be doing a letter of the alphabet each week starting with the letter A and working towards Z.  This is what I am doing to keep all of our alphabet stuff together and organized.  I am not quite finished, but I thought I would share now.
Most of the alphabet stuff I'll be doing with my boys is from Confessions of a Homeschooler.  If you have not visited her blog before it is a MUST!  Wow, she has some awesome stuff available on her blog. 

I got a binder.  I am hoping a 2 inch will do, but not so sure at this point.  I plan on making a cute cover for it as well.
 Then get some plastic page protectors.  If you don't have a ton of things, one for each letter should work, if not do as many as you need.
 Stick all the stuff you need for each letter in a page protector.  Here is my letter "D" stuff.
 To keep the individual activities together I either use a plastic baggy or a paper clip.  (This is Confessions of a Homeschoolers Dino stuff for the letter D, didn't I tell you it's awesome?!)
As you can see I still have a ways to go, but I am optimistic that this method will work well for keeping all of our alphabet activities together.

I love that idea, I printed EVERYTHING as I made it, so I'm not sure it would all fit in a binder like that, but it's a GREAT idea! Thanks for sharing :o) Hope you are having fun!
