Trying to help your child learn some important facts such as multiplication, dates in history, or a new language? Struggling to get through those flashcards one more time? Flashcards don’t have to be boring. In fact, with a little creativity, they can be quite fun!
This spring my girls and I have been working on Spanish, addition, and subtraction flashcards. We had reached a dead end. Learning was no longer fun and there seemed to be little progress. That is when I decided it was time for something different. Enter 40 Fun Flashcard Games for Any Subject.
Why Flashcard Games?
As a teacher in the public school I used to incorporate some fun flashcard games with my students. Why I never thought to use them with my own children, I don’t know, but when I did, wow! The change was almost immediate. I heard words like, “That was fun!” and “Can we do that again?” and “That game is my new favorite!” No joke!
Now we play flashcard games nearly every day and the results have been astounding. Speed games and tests used to cause my oldest to flip out in frustration. Now she gets excited about seeing if she can improve her time.
