Word Pairs Flash Cards
The MonkiSee Word Pairs Flash Cards reintroduce words from the first three volumes in a fresh new way. Words are combined into pairs to advance babies reading skills while increasing their understanding of how words work together to form new meanings.
This set contains 40 flash cards with a word on one side and a full color image on the opposite side. Babies should already be familiar with these words since they were introduced in previous volumes, allowing them to quickly advance from reading single words to word pairs. Some of the words included in this volume are frog legs, bath water, square crackers, and blue eyes.
Each flash card displays a word on the front and a full color image on the opposite side, which is very useful for aiding babies in understanding what they are learning and what the words mean. These oversize flash cards are easy to handle due to their large size, making them ideal for teaching babies and young children to read. The words should always be shown first and for ease of use and quicker viewing the flash cards flip forward to reveal the pictures on the back of each card. There are multiple ways to use the cards. You can read more on how to use flash cards here.
How do I teach with these flash cards?
Teaching babies to read with flash cards is incredibly easy, fast and effective. Young children learn best in short, quick sessions. These sessions take as little as 20-30 seconds each and you would do that 2 -3 times per day. You can teach your baby to read between 10 – 20 words in a week, or more depending on your child’s level of interest. The amount of time you would be investing is about 1 or 2 minutes per day. That is really all it takes. Continue showing your baby the words until you have completed the whole set.
Why teach babies to read by sight?
Knowing how to read these words allows the child to read more fluidly, without getting tripped up on words. This increases comprehension of what is being read and makes for more confident readers. Sight-reading can lead to an understanding of phonics if it in introduced during the first three years of life. By teaching babies to read with flash cards, they quickly learn the words and commit them to memory so they are never stumbling blocks in their reading.
