Education is compatible with modern day technology. Traditional literacy practices such as using flash cards, reading repetitious book aloud and highlighting key sight words are staples in literary education, however, these standard practices can evolve with the times as well. Here at Kids Corner, we have listings of FREE YA Titles and top 99 Cents Titles to load up your Kindle to promote and encourage reading in the classroom and/or home.
Today, we have a special listing for our readers: FLASH CARDS! Flash Cards are a great way to present and practice vocabulary. Flash cards can be particularly important in the literary education of visual learners. Flash cards are stimulating to younger kids and make learning fun for all kids.
Flash Cards on Kindles are a great way to start reading in your household. Here is a brief list of FREE and 99 Cents flash cards:

This fifth part of The Big Book of Sight Words series contains the 42 Sight Words on the Dolch List for 3rd Grade school children.
The Dolch List is named after Dr. Edward Dolch who in 1948 compiled the 220 most common “service words” found in children’s reading books at the time. These are words that cannot be phonetically sounded out and should be memorized.
The 42 words in this edition (Vocabulary Words for Third Grade) make up 50 to 70 percent of the text in books preschools are reading. It is recommended that most students learn to recognize all 220 Dolch Words and the 95 nouns by the end of First Grade.
Fluency in reading the 220 Dolch Words and the 95 nouns is essential to literacy. Teachers and parents use a variety of techniques to teach them. Repetition and practice are key to making recognition of Sight Words automatic. Once this core of basic sight words has been memorized, children read more fluently, with greater comprehension.
Because children love technology, this version was created to be viewed on a Kindle or any Smartphone with a Kindle application. Just one more tool in the parent’s toolbox to help their children master reading!

Section 1 features the cards in alphabetical order with the name underneath.
Section 2 features the cards in alphabetical order, but the name is not revealed until the next page.
Sections 3 – 7 feature the cards in different random orders which helps children learn without relying on a fixed sequence.
