ABC Jars are a fun way to play while learning.
I’ve wanted to do this for years, so am excited I can finally cross this project off my list of good intentions!
The original idea came from a woman who taught with Mr. P years ago, but she used white frosting tubs. Each week they highlighted a letter of the alphabet and the kids brought items for the jar.
