I don’t know what it is about flashcards, but my kids absolutely love them. They’ll collect them, lay them out on the table, pass them around, look at them, and toss them in the air for hours. Truly.
So, I’m beginning a series of free printable flashcards on the blog, which I hope you’ll find to be as useful as we do. We’re starting with a pack of free printable flashcards shape cards, which are great for toddlers and preschoolers alike!
I’ll also be sharing some ideas for how you can use the flashcards in your school lessons or in your kids’ after school learning activities.
By the way, if you have any suggestions for particular flashcard ideas you’d like to see featured, let me know!
What’s In the Free Printable Flashcards: Shapes Set?
To use these flashcards, you’ll need the following:
The pack includes 16 flashcards for the following shapes:
One set of eight flashcards includes the shape names and pictures, while another includes just the pictures. You might decide to use the first set to help kids learn their shape names, and then use the second set to test their memory.
You might also decide to print two sets of each group and use them in a matching game!
