When teaching vocabulary we want to reinforce the information we are giving students verbally and in writing with visual information. This allows us to provide further visual information that visual learners can process to go along with the verbal information for auditory learners. We can also address the needs of tactile and kinesthetic learners by using activities that require student interaction with the learning materials. We can accomplish all of these goals through the use of flash cards. This session will present 20 flash card activities that allow us, as teachers, to meet the needs of students with all language learning styles.
