Pot of Gold

When I was working with remedial students, I used monthly themed “flashcards” to help them practice specific words or skills we were working on at the time.  Although I didn’t use flashcards much in my regular classrooms, I found they were an excellent tool to help students isolate and focus on specific concepts with which they were struggling.  We used the flashcards to play all kinds of games and kept them in a basket to review throughout the year.  They were really very effective.
