How to Prepare the Flash Cards
Print out the pages of flash cards on printer paper or card stock paper.
Use scissors or a paper cutter to cut them out. You can print out every page or only the ones you need at the moment.
Glue them to construction paper and/or laminate. Again, this is completely up to you.
How to Use the Sight Word Flash Cards
Most of us have used flash cards at some point in our education. What you may not realize is that there are different ways to use them.
Traditional Flash Card Use
When most people think of flash cards they think of the traditional use. And this is a great way to use them with your child. Choose the words that your child is working on. Show your child a flash card and ask them to read the word.
There are four flash cards to a page, making them a little larger than your typical flash cards. If you have room in your home, you can hang the ones you are working on with your child on the wall.
Choose the words that your child is working on. Print out and prepare TWO SETS of the words. Play a memory game with your child, where they try to find the matching words.
If your child has been working on this skill, have them put words of your choosing in alphabetical order.
How to Store the Pumpkin Themed Sight Word Flash Cards
Once you have printed out and prepared all of the flash cards, you will find yourself with lots and lots of cards that you don’t want to lose. You could store them in a Ziploc type bag or you could store them in an index card or photo storage case like this one. I love how you can organize so many sets!
