Hello I just wanted to share a fun learning tool for my son using Emma's envelope and pocket dies. My son is in 1st grade this year and he comes home with 12 spelling words a week that he must learn to sight and spell. I just used 3 x 5 index cards and cut those in half. They fit PERFECTLY in the envelope die!!! So we just flip through them first day ~ so he can site the words.
Now for the actual alphabet part I let him chose what shape he wanted to work with ~ he chose Emma's pocket dies. So we die cut, yes we both took turns die cutting 26 pockets out. He LOVES to die cut. I have extra dies for later when we need to add more letters ~ for example the word Dad! We needed 2 D's. Let me say the little envelope die that holds the pockets letters has plenty of room to add more letters. I also decided that I wanted to keep our weeks separated and organized~ so I just used the new tag from the last release and the alphabet ! I used one of my MCT background stamp to give them a little flare. My son actually stamped a few of the backgrounds too! I have to tell you these are FABULOUS to just shove in your purse and pull them out if you are out to eat and need something to occupy the little one ~ plus they actually learn too! We really do have fun with learning his words!
