A-B-Cs for Me

I just bought this set of "Nerdy Baby Cards" on Etsy. (click on image to enlarge) I was driven to it by seeing the same set of letter/sound cards in every room of the school...including the office. I totally get why they're there, but I have to say that these cards are more my style.

Etsy is a dangerous site. I've been able to resist the Molecular Muse, but just barely. I don't know if I will be able to resist the charms of The Builder's Studio for much longer.

I'll content myself with these letter cards for now. I'm going to have to find a very special place in my workspace (a corner of a classroom/storeroom) for these. As a trained secondary science teacher moving into an elementary school world, these should help ease the transition.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE those! I just might have to get a set for MY classroom (I thought I was being oh-so-rebellious when I bought the Martha Stewart alphabet cards)- elementary students LOVE words like those! They love trying to pronounce them, they love stumping their parents and older siblings with knowledge of them- "big words" are COOL!

Yep, Etsy can suck you in and never let you go. One of the better addictions, I'm thinking.

There are definitely worse things than Etsy to become addicted to. :)

I think I picked up the last (currently available) set of these last night...but I'd bet the artist will make more.

I can hardly wait until they get here!
