Find the word
AGE GROUP: 5+
The e-book “Find the word | VOCABULARY FLASHCARDS” is the ultimate tool for improving children’s vocabulary in an amusing way, through play. It comprises 120 flashcards that are suitable for children in Year 2 and 3 of the primary school, especially for those in Year 3. The words are simple and can be easily understood. Both older students with language difficulties and non-native learners will find it very useful. It is worthwhile noting that the pictures of the e-book make it suitable for younger children as well.
- Print, laminate, and cut the flashcards. Each player takes turns reading the definition in the flashcard. The others try to guess the word formatted in blue. The person who finds the word wins the flashcard. Whoever collects most cards wins the game. There are also other alternative ways of playing this game; the teacher, the parent, or the special therapist read the definition, and the children try to guess the word.
- Finally, children can play the game all by themselves. In this case, they hide the word formatted in blue, read the description, and try to make a correct guess. Alternatively, they read the word and try to define it. Then they check the definition to see if they have answered correctly (self-correction process).
The flashcards are suitable for younger children too. Emphasis is now placed on the picture of the flashcard. Each player describes what they see, and the others try to guess the word.
