Printing and Cutting
A great way to keep these cards looking new for multiple uses is to print them off onto heavy weight paper.
I highly recommend using cardstock instead of plain printer paper. For added durability, you can laminate the set.
Since the cards are a digital download, you will need a printer available to print off the set.
Designed for a standard 8 ½ by 11 inch piece of paper.
However, always check the print preview before printing and adjust the size of the cards to make sure nothing is cut off when printing.
Using a paper cutter or scissors, cut out the flashcards. You can either leave the edges straight or follow along with the curved lines.
Your kids can use the cards as is or you can laminate the set.
How to Laminate
Laminating is a great option if you want the cards to last. Especially if using them with very young kids.
Helpful Tip: If you decide to laminate the set, I would do that after cutting them out. This will allow all of the paper to be sealed within the plastic.
I used this laminator and it worked great! Cut out the cards, place four within one laminating pouch, then run it through the machine.
It is such an easy (and fun) process that you can do at home.
This will allow the cards to be used for years to come. Your kids can also write directly onto the laminated card using a dry erase marker.
If you decide to take your cards outside, laminating them will also protect them from dirt and water.
Displaying and Storing
Placing the cards at a work station or along a wall is a great way to your kids to see the cards.
To store them, simply use a basket, small bag, or even a rubber band to hold the set together.
If you have a designated homeschooling spot, you can even nicely display them on a shelf or table.
How to Use
- A visual when recalling letters
- Match the uppercase and lower case letters
