Flash Cards & Clip Cards ~ Why Buy when you can Make {Practical Mondays #54}


Here are some cards I made last month. They were *soooo tedious*, really broke my back. I mean I had to literally write down words on pieces of papers, all so my 5 y.o. could practice blend sounds. Huh. 

And the counting ones took the cake. He needs to practise counting up to 100, and he seldom forgets what comes after say 39. or 79. Hence I made cards card to clip the correct answer. 

Phew. I need a long hot bath, wine and a Walking Dead marathon to feel normal again!


{btw you can print Free clip cards for beginning blends from The Measured Mom, she’s got some fab printables that I’ve used!}

    1. You can custom make them to what your kid is currently learning and trash them right away.

  5. We make lots of our own cards or find free printables. I like that I can really personalize it to exactly what they need to know/learn.

  9. I'm all for DIY learning, somehow it feels more satisfying and engaging to make them yourself. Some lovely looking maths games too.
