Let me show you one of my flashcard sets I use as a private tutor to teach English as second language to kids. This one includes wild animals flashcards. I actually love teaching English with the help of animal pictures and toys. Animals are the number one topic that can totally engage children into the studying process. After all the majority of their favorite toys are animals and their favorite cartoons feature animals. That’s why meeting animals during an English lesson is an exciting and fun event for little learners. And fun and excitement is something that makes them remember the moment forever while memorizing the presented vocabulary at the same time.
So I make sure my flashcards feature cute cartoony images and especially those created to help kids learn animals in English. I design three types of flashcards for each animal: the one showing an image of an animal and its name in English, the one showing a single image of the animal, and the one showing only the name of the animal. The flashcard with both the image and the word is used to introduce the wild animals vocabulary to students. The cards with a single image and a single word are great for vocabulary recognition and memorization activities. The activities can be as follows:
- Showing an image and asking kids to find the corresponding word among other words on cards
- Demonstrating a word to students and asking them to find the corresponding image among a few other image cards
- Asking children to match word and image cards
So here go the wild animals flashcards.
