Polishing Up Your Children's Math Skills With Math Flashcards

Raising your kid's math skills is challenging, sometimes. As soon as one lesson has been learned, the classroom is off to a new lesson. This means your child may have trouble keeping up. Math flashcards are important when you need to focus on skills your child has not yet mastered. You can even keep the flashcards in two boxes: one for skills mastered and one for skills that need more work. Your child will find it encouraging as the "skills mastered" box fills up. You could also consider taping the more challenging flashcards to the fridge so that your child sees them daily. This could help accelerate the learning process.

What are the different kinds of math cards?

The kinds of math flashcards you need will depend on what you'd like to focus on with your child. There are flashcards that are just multiplication, division, adding, and subtracting. You can also get preschool ones that focus on skills learned in preschool, such as shapes and colors that you can associate with math. For older kids, there are flashcards that emphasize fractions, decimals, or more complicated math problems.

Do math flashcards come in different designs?

Yes. In fact to make learning even more fun, you can select designs that your child will like. Some styles that eBay offers are:

  • Animal Print
  • Children's
  • Modern
  • Traditional
  • Vintage/Retro

Vintage and retro cards are great collectibles to have. You can not only help your child master some skills, you can even use the ones you had growing up. Themed flashcards are another fun option. If your child likes Disney, getting Disney Princess-themed flashcards, for example, could be a great idea.

Another way to select your flashcards is by color. You can choose clear, white, green, pink, and more. By selecting your child's favorite color, your child may enjoy the idea of learning through flashcards.

Finally, since flashcards can fall apart after much use, eBay also offers laminated flashcards. These can see years of use and still look like new.

Do specific brands sell math flashcards?

Yes, some brands specialize in making flashcards, and they make flashcards for different grade levels. If you'd like to browse through flashcards by a specific brand to see what they offer, here are some to consider:

  • Disney
