I've decided that it's not *really* a matter of conceit when I absolutely love a product I just finished, because what I love about it is the graphics - and we all know they were designed by Kate Hadfield of Kate Hadfield Designs, so I'm off the hook there.
A few months ago I was thinking about how hard certain spellings are for kids to learn - like the kn in knight or the ph in phone. (When I refer to my phone, I usually call it a "puh-hone," CAUSE THAT'S HOW IT'S SPELLED!) Anyway, since I'm a big-time visual learner, I was thinking about how effective it would be for someone like me to see a picture of a knight with the kn in red, and maybe a list of other words with a similar spelling pattern. And to maybe have them all together in a little book, to flip through when I needed a reminder.
You wouldn't think that making files of 17 of such pairs would be difficult, but it literally took me several months. I had a great idea, but I had to figure out all the details, then work on it and tweak it until it looked right. At this moment I am incredibly relieved to have finished, so I wanted to share some examples so everyone can see the fruits of my labor. :D These 36 files (plus cover image) are designed to be printed as photos and assembled in a photo brag book (available at any craft retailer or by the photo albums or craft area at big box retailers.)
