Here are Creative Ways Parents Can Use The Flashcards At Home:

I HATE flashcards! Life should NOT always be a test! But, if you use them as "skill cards" that can change EVERYTHING!

Here is how to use flashcards in FUN ways at home:

1. Send home a set of flashcards based on the skills each student needs to practice with just one click on ESGI.
(Directions about how to use ESGI for FREE are at the end of this post.)

2. Parents can choose a few "skill cards" (let's not call them flashcards any longer) and have the child cut them out. (Use fancy scissors to make it more fun and to build fine motor skills as they are usually a little trickier to use.)
Have them cut around the
first (a great word to discuss)
and keep the scraps.

                 Use the scraps for an art project!

3. Place 2 skill cards, back-to-back, inside a sandwich size zipper bag. 

4. Remove the air from some of the bags and seal.

5. Add air, by inserting a straw and blowing air into the bag, to some of the bags and seal.

6. Now, let's play! In the bathtub, or even in a sink, they can play "Sink That Skill!" Let the bags with air in them float as your child scans all of the bags for the skill you call out. "Sink the letter Q." "Sink the letter P."
Imagine the tub filled with floating bags of skill cards!

And use the bags without air to stick skills to the tile. And don't forget to talk about sinking and floating to get a bit of science in too! 

What Else Can I Do With These Skill Cards?

~Stick individual cards to your child's bedroom door or at the bottom of the stairs and have them slap the skill card and say the letter, #, sight word, etc. as they pass by.
~Hide a skill card under each dinner plate at the dinner table tonight and each person gets to look at their skill card and give clues to the family to help them guess the letter, #, sight word, etc.
~Copy a 2nd set of skill cards, cut them out and attach them, face down, to the refrigerator with magnets. Let your child play the Memory Game as they peek at skill cards and try to match them up.
~Use skill cards as "brag tags" and let your child tape the cards that have the skills they have mastered onto their shirt and wear the brag tags all day long. 
Whatever you do, make learning FUN!
