Flash Cards

When used correctly, flash cards can be effective tools for teaching children.  When teaching kids, learning should be fun and engaging. While using flash cards with my toddler I try to make a game of it and only use them for no more than 10 minutes at a time, unless she wants to continue.  If she shows no interest in them, I do not press to continue but rather try again later.  More often than not, she asks to play with the cards.  Sometimes, I give her between 5 and 10 cards and let her look at them. She sits down and says the words, letters or shapes as well as the pictures.  These flash cards are something she gets excited about and truly enjoys using.
