In Teddy Talk, Big Bear Banter and the induction packs for P4-7 and Secondary we have all used flashcards to learn new vocabulary.
MES have now put their flashcards online with audio. Great for use on chromebooks and during the current online learning. (slight warning in that uses American english so need to be careful using some of the vocabulary for UK English speakers eg trousers – pants)
Useful list of activities and games to use with any set of flashcards. These activities can be used with Induction packs at Primary or Secondary level, as an alternative to Big Bear Banter suggestions or to introduce new vocabulary for topics.
