Creative Ways To Use The MonkiSee Flash Cards
Show the cards using the word side only. You may also present the word, and then flip the card over and enjoy the picture.
Take the time to point out your baby’s own body parts, while you look at the word and picture. Your baby may enjoy the pictures and want to see them every time you use the flash cards. If your aim is to teach your baby to read, always show the word first and then reward your child by showing them the picture. You can spend more time looking at the pictures than on the actual word. It only takes a brief second for that word to register in your child’s brain. Do not attempt to have your child stare at it for long periods of time.
Use the picture side to discuss the objects and teach them to your baby. This will not teach your baby to read, but is a fun way to use the cards.
Place the cards in different areas around the house. Then, take a walk with your baby in your arms and point out all the different words you see. This is a great way to teach babies that are more active and do not want to sit still to read. Use magnets and stick some of the words on the refrigerator and view them severaltimes a day.
Your baby may like to see the words while they are sitting in their highchair. Be creative and customize your reading program to suit your baby’s tastes. If you are excited to teach your baby to read, you will find opportunities everywhere to point out words.
Words are all around us; just point them out to your baby as you encounter them in your daily life. This will make reading as natural for your child as speaking.
These cards are a tool for the parent or guardian. Babies should not be allowed to handle the cards. Babies may tear the cards and small pieces can be a choking hazard.
