I’m a SUCKER for things that are school related and vintage. You may remember a certain vintage wreath I did last year? Fragile, sparkly, delicate, and lovely. So as we’re gearing back into school mode, I couldn’t help myself. I went back into vintage mode and made: A vintage book.
Let me explain why I love this project SO much:
1. I’m a teacher – and therefore, a hoarder and collector at heart. Try as I might, some things I simply CANNOT throw away. So when I saw these thick, glossy, papers (they’re pretty dang big, yo) I couldn’t THROW THEM AWAY! They were too darling.
My POINT? When I was in that teaching position, I learned how CRUCIAL nursery rhymes were – and starting at a VERY young age. It is important for a child to hear a song, recognize the rhyming, and notice the patterns – this will help with reading, phonemic awareness, etc. Crazy cool.
I was considering framing these cards, and then I saw the back. Wouldn’t you know it? NURSERY RHYMES. I was ecstatic.
