One morning Kenzie got up way too early (in my opinion). While the rest of the house slept, we worked on her letters. As a private tutor, I found flash cards to be an amazing way to teach kids. Whether it be math, reading, or memorizing facts, flash cards were the way to go. It’s how I got through high school and college. What I do is always start with a small pile. Once those are known fairly well, we add a couple more. You continue to go through the pile with the additions and as you learn those well, you add a couple more. Eventually, you’ve got the whole pile down. We also play our own basketball game. You see two piles above. If she gets it right it goes in the, “I know this pile,” and she gets to shoot a bean bag in the bucket. If it’s wrong – no shot, and it goes in the “I need to learn this” pile. It’s a fun way to get kids learning without really knowing they’re working at something.
