Well, flashcards can work with older students, too.
Instead of 2 + 2, students must now memorize algebra and geometry formulas. Foreign language words become easier to handle when written on flashcards. Dates in history and scientific facts are perfect for flashcards as well.
Most kids like working with flashcards. They’re inexpensive to make and easy to use.
And now that your child is older, he can make them himself. The time he spends deciding what cards to make is extra time he’s studying.
Older students like flashcards because they can make the decision about where, when and how long they study. Flashcards are easily stowed in a backpack or pocket. Many kids pull them out during study hall or any time they need to brush up on some facts.
Flashcards are just as useful for teens as for younger children. Encourage your student to make—and use—flashcards for study.
