If you want to make learning enjoyable for kids, you’ll want to incorporate games into your curriculum.
Games have numerous benefits including:
- capturing the attention of learners of all ages,
- encouraging playfulness while learning,
- making learning seem effortless,
- helping children learn critical thinking skills, good character traits, and social skills,
- and making monotonous tasks like practicing math facts or memorizing state capitals enjoyable for learners.
Flash cards are another helpful tool for learning. They:
- give learners immediate feedback during study. Learners know right away if they were right or wrong,
- fit the needs of the learner because mastered concepts can be removed,
- encourage learners to actively recall information instead of being a passive reader,
- are a hassle-free learning tool because they can be used independently by the learner,
- encourage learning through repetition,
- are versatile because they can have any text or images on them that facilitate learning.
When you combine games and flash cards, you have a winning combination.
That’s what the flash card games on this page are all about, combining two useful tools for learning into one fun activity that can be used by any age group.
These flash card games can be played by 1 or 2 players and are non-competitive because each player is competing against the game itself rather than each other.
These games revolve around exciting story themes which makes them fun to play!
They take only 10 – 15 minutes to play so they are perfect for quick breaks, centers, or indoor recess.
These games are very versatile in that they can be played by two players of different age groups and ability levels who are studying the same or different subjects because each player uses his/her own set of flash cards.
The flash card games and cards on this page can be mixed and matched for your convenience. All flash cards are the same size so they can be used on any of the flash card game boards.
All flash card games and cards are listed below by subject. Also shown is a vanilla game board that has a flash card template instead of pre-made flash cards.
