Using Flashcards to Teach Children

Engaging Visuals

Flashcards are a wonderful way to teach. They provide a visual way to of learning for people of all ages. Visual learning is a style that appeals to many people. Flashcards can include bright and colorful illustrations to capture the learner’s attention and motivate them to want to learn.

Perfect For Home or School

Flashcards are a handy tool to have and can be useful at every age. They are a great way to present, practice, and review vocabulary and concepts. When students become familiar with the activities used in class, they can review concepts.

Flash cards are perfect for teaching students to work independently or for early finishers. Teachers can put flashcards in task boxes during center rotations or small groups too! Flashcards are also a great way for students to practice what they are working on at home, rather than with worksheets.

Perfect For Special Education

Flashcards focus on one concept at a time so they are not overwhelming for students. They are also a great way to practice IEP (individualized education plan) goals. Teachers can set up individual IEP bins for their students with flashcards like Channie’s for students to work on their goals. These flashcards are a convenient way to work on skills like letters, numbers, reading, handwriting, and math to help students reach their full potential.

Perfect for on-the-go

I now homeschool my 3 children who have autism and ADHD. We like to take our flash cards with us to restaurants so we can practice our academics while we wait for our food. It is a wonderful way to wait for our meal without screen time.

5 Tips For Using Flashcards With Your Child

  1. Practice regularly- Have child work on flash cards daily to reinforce learning and memory.
  2. Review flashcards that have been previously learned to build memory.
  3. Increase difficulty, gradually- once the child masters content, introduce more difficult concepts to keep learning challenging.
  4. Encouragement- praise and encourage your child for doing a great job to increase motivation.
  5. Incorporate all the senses- pair the visuals of flashcards with auditory input and tactile input to stimulate the senses and improve learning. Dry-erase flashcards that have children practice writing a word or solving a problem are great for this.

Pre-K Activity Flashcards

Sight Words

Kids can learn to read and write sight words using bright flashcards that let them trace and practice their words. 


Help children how to solve math problems and visually line problems up correctly. These help children to become more accurate at math while working on handwriting.


The blocks make children visually aware of spacing when writing and allow for self-correction if they write outside the box.

These are just some of the ways Channie’s can help your child with handwriting or math. Take a look at our online classes that offer individualized teaching to help your child succeed.
