The Best Space Flash Cards!

Going along with our space theme, I decided to give flash cards a try. We have never used flash cards before, but I have been wanting to see how effective they were on my 3-year-old and also my 20 month old. So I searched online and all through my favorite tot school/homeschooling blogs and found these amazing flash cards! I printed them out and used packing tape to give them the “laminated” feel. I know, I know, ghetto right? But hey, it works!
My girls LOVE LOVE LOVE these flash cards. They seriously demand to show everyone how well they are learning their planets. Well B wants to show everyone, and A just does anything and everything B does. And when we do the flash cards for someone, we do them at least 3 times each, so 6 times all together. A doesn’t talk very well yet but she is super cute when she says “Mars” and “Earth”! B gets super excited and starts going to fast, and she sometimes calls Pluto, Goofy! Haha! She says that’s how she remembers it, is to think about Goofy.

The cards include all the planets (including Pluto) and the sun and moon as well.

After doing it off and on for about a week, B knows 6-7 out of 11 cards, and A knows 3. Pretty good I think.

    Isn’t awesome how much they love to learn! I have a 3 year old and have been thinking of putting flash cards on things like the door and the refrigerator – because he loves letters and when I tell him how to spell things he’s fascinated! MIght as well teach him if he’s interested, right? Good job Mama!

    Such a great idea! I have sign language flash cards and I haven’t started doing them with my 15 month old because I wasn’t sure if she would be able to grasp the concept. Now I know she’s closer than I thought!

      Most def! It’s never too early to start. My little one was even slower to begin talking, so she may be more than ready. I would def try it. It’s amazing how much they learn when they are so little! 🙂

  5. This is a great resource!
