Groundhog Day is right around the corner! I love incorporating fun holidays and events into our school routine – just for a little fun! One way I like to do this is to use themed flash cards. Both ZooKid (grade 1) and Princess Super Kitty (preschool) love working with any kind of manipulatives, especially if we make a game out of it. I find flash cards to be very versatile: I can use them in most subjects and curricula in every grade for whatever we are working on at the moment.
On Groundhog Day, I’m using groundhog flash cards to …
Practice letter sounds and phonemes
Practice matching rhyming words and onsets
Practice words on our reading list
Practice identifying and sorting parts of speech
Practice mental math problems
Practice identifying and sequencing numbers and matching quantities
Practice telling time
Practice defining vocabulary words
Practice memorizing our science poem
