Along the last classes we have been working in how to use flashcards and how to enhance children speaking skills. We have noticed that at the beginning it's a bit difficult because you don't know what to do with the material and how to use it, but when you get used to it and open your mind you find a big world of possibilities and facilities to teach in dynamic way.
You just need a little imagination because it's a very flexible material and you can cover a lot of topics with them.
It's a way of visual learning and depending on the activity you create you can cater for all the multiple intelligences. We have always to bare on mind that each of our children learn in a different way and also because of the flexibility of the material we have mentioned before you can create activities which promote the developing of higher order skills making them thinking and reflecting on their own learning process.
We will continue researching on the subject.
