‘Between digital blackboards and flashy apps, the humble flash card remains the king of effective learning.’
Benefits of Flash Cards for New Born:
Multiple modes of play and learning
The most common way to gamify learning with flash cards is the ´flip and reveal´ but with a bit of imagination you can mix it up and create games like Memory or create sub groups of flash cards as part of a bigger game.
Gotta catch Them All
From Pokemon to Poker, people love cards. Flash cards are tactile and physical; you can spread them out on a table, flip them and shuffle them. They are ideal for idle hands and hopefully idle minds too. They are a great way to conquer the most stubborn of younger students.
Cost: cheap and powerful
The relative costs of flash cards over books and digital classroom content are clear. And if you have a knack for crafts you can easily make your own flashcards. All you need are some 3 x 5 inch index cards and a couple of marker pens. The most basic version of flash cards for language learning is target language on one side and your language on the other. A simple and effective way to boost your vocabulary.
Featuring bright, full-color illustrations and large, easy-to-read lettering, the First Words Flash Cards introduce and reinforce common early vocabulary words for toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners. Learning flashcards are a fun and effective way to introduce new words in a fun and engaging way. These first word cards promote increased concentration and help build the listening, memorization and recall skills necessary for student success.
A great teaching tool for both parents and teachers, the word flashcard set is ideal for homeschooling, small group instruction and the classroom, setting children up for reading success wherever they are. The flashcards are made with a glossy cardstock to easily sort words for practice with your child, and the resource card is a great tool for engaging students in fun, interactive learning games.
Portable and cordless
For kids, flash cards make the perfect game for long car journeys and for older students they can be revised while commuting and during any available downtime. Flash cards can also be dotted around your house at strategic locations. Laminated flash cards for hanging in the shower were a personal favourite.
You can take them everywhere and you can easily take them out an introduce new words to your child at any given moment. Imagine you plan a field trip; you’ll be able to bring flashcards with you and introduce new thing about the objects around you in an interactive way.
Flash cards show the essential information. Some students have a hard time focussing on a page full of other distracting elements. A flash card serves up the ´need to know´and nothing else. Sometimes it can be difficult for child to learn too much material at a time
Importance Role of Flash Cards in Learning
If you’re working with children, flash cards are an ideal way of stimulating children and making them interested in study in an engaging way. Children can’t focus like adults do, so you really have to get creative and integrate play into your teaching methods.
Flash cards are particularly useful parents who are trying to introduce a new learning to their children. When you prepare your infants to develop their skills before starting school, they will have an easier time absorbing a new learning because they already built a helpful association with flash card methodology.
Howard Gardner’s multiple intelligence theory is common knowledge by now and if you’re a teacher or you’re preparing to become one, then you know that there are indeed many types of learners in a classroom.
We all use different processes to understand the information that is given to us, and that’s why teachers aim to reach all the different types of learners. Flash cards are a great tool for visual learners because they are bright, illustrative and colorful. They make an impact.
Benefits of Flash Cards
When it comes to children and toddlers, flashcards help children improve their knowledge and ability to understand and improve visual memory.
Children are not known for their ability to focus, so flashcards make it easier for educators to provide small pieces of information in a memorable and interesting way. Personally I´m not a fan of ¨licensed properties¨ in education (think Paw Patrol ABC´s) but there is no denying that seeing a familiar face on an educational product helps ease the child into learning.
Flashcards allow children to make associations. And for language learning specifically we want them to associate a known word with it´s foreign language counterpart. When you show them both the images and the words, they create links in their brains which help them identify that object every time they see it.
If you bring a little bit of color and fun into your classroom, your students will have an easier time understanding and practicing the target language.
