Playing with Flash Cards

Thursday, July 19, 2012


I am a Spanish teacher who travels to different classrooms. I carry a lot in my bags, and it can be a painful at times. This is when having a set of flash cards can be really handy, instead of lugging tons of heavy materials around! Plus, my students really enjoy playing games like the ones you will find below.


Fly swatter

Place different flashcards on a table or the floor. Describe one of the flashcards. For example: It’s a big animal, its colors are black and white and it says “moo”. After the description, have one of your students tap or slap the right card using a fly swatter.

What’s missing?

Place 3 to 5 flashcards on a table or on the floor. Look at them with your students and name each of them. Have one of your students close his/her eyes while you hide one of the cards. Have your student open his/her eyes to guess the name of the card that is missing.

The jumping game

Place a line of flashcards on a table or the floor. Call out some of the vocabulary placed on the line and have one of your students jump next to the correct card.
Place a flashcard in a box and have a volunteer guess the name of the card in the box. You can give your child some cues about the card.

Little translator

Show one side of the card and have your students give you the word in the other language.

Storytellers

Arrange a set of flashcards in a pile. Take the first several flash cards and create a sentence. Have your students take another flashcard to continue with the story. Continue with the same procedure until all the flashcards in the pile are gone.
