Think Tank Scholar makes bright and beautiful flashcards that will pique your little one’s interest and keep them interested. Featuring flashcards for school subjects such as Math, Sight Words, Preschool and more, Think Tank Scholar also teaches you how to best teach your child.
For example, the sight words flash cards decks each contain 100+ of the most frequently used words that do not necessarily follow phonetic rules. They cover up to 75% of the words found in beginning books. Learning to automatically recognize these words without decoding them greatly increases your child’s reading speed accuracy, fluency, and comprehension.
I especially love their tips on how to maximize the flashcard’s effectiveness. For example, you might think a flashcard is simply “flashed” at the student, and the student then says the answer. But, there’s a lot more to it! They give six methods, which may work better for your child. In other words, you can have the child say the answer and then spell it. Or, you can do it more quickly: show the flash card and then hide it while learner says sight word and spells it. Or, even have them create a sentence from the words they have already mastered.
When my daughter and I have used flashcards, she started out very slowly and was reluctant to “play”. But, the more familiar she became with the material, the more fun it was for her. And, by the end she was so proud of herself for mastering the lessons it made learning so much fun!
Speaking of fun, here are Six Sight Words Games Include:
- Complete the Sentence – Create a sentence with 1 missing word. Learner selects a sight word card that fits and reads the sentence.
- Create a Sentence – Give the learner a subset of flash cards. Learner then creates a sentence from the cards.
- Interactive Sentence – Divide the deck between two people. Take turns playing cards to create and modify a sentence.
- Slapjack – Lay out 3 or more flash cards within arms reach of each player. Call out one of the words. The first player to slap down on the card with that word gets to keep it. The player with the most sight word cards at the end wins.
- Search the Deck – Choose a sight word from the index card. Learner searches through the deck to find the corresponding card.
- Word Hunt – Give players old magazines, flyers, newspapers, etc. Then select a sight word (or more) from the deck. Players then race to find the sight word(s) in their magazines and receive 3 points for the first instance of the word and 1 point for each additional instance. Player with the most points wins.
Here is to a lifetime love of creative thinking and learning!
