Explore writing through flash cards

for word building 

 

PROCEDURE: Depending on the child's interest and need, choose a theme like Animals, Birds, Fruits, Vegetables, Colours, Shapes, Transport, months of the year etc.

In this presentation we use the topic Animals. Choose around 10 pictures of animals with 3 to 4 lettered names like cow dog cat etc .

Take print out. Make two sets. Laminate one set of the cards with the name of the animal. For the other set laminate the picture of the animal and the label of the name separately.

Flash cards helps in visual stimulation and overall cognitive development.

 HOW TO USE FLASH CARDS: Flash cards are very versatile and this material can be used in four stages for different age groups.

MATCHING PICTURES: At the first stage, for children aged 30 to 36 months can use the pictures as matching cards. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MATCHING LABELS: At the second stage children over 3 years who can recognise and read letters can match the cards and recognise the name of the animal and label it.

 

 

 

 

 

FORMING WORDS: Children over 3.5 years who have not started writing yet, but can recognise the letters and words can pick letters from the letter tray and make words. A letter tray tray is a tray with moveable alphabets. It is available in Dollarstore.

 

WRITING WORDS: Children who are ready to write can use the label as a reference and write the words. 

Cards can be made for different topics like animals, birds, fruits, vegetables etc. Children can learn with the help of these cards.
