Flashcards: Things at Home

Looking for more flashcards? Check out our Free Flashcards Resource Page.

As recommended by Mel, I have added a tab under “Articles” in the “Menu” bar at the top of this blog titled “Early Childhood Education”.  It lists all the permalinks to the blog posts with flashcards.  I will be updating the page each time I post a new series of flashcards for download for easier reference.

When I bought the Doman reading kit, the sales person recommended me to start with three categories of words, using only five words from each category.  For example:

Parts of the Body: head, toes, nose, bellybutton, eyes.
Colours: red, green, blue, yellow, pink.
Fruits and Vegetables: banana, apple, orange, pear, kiwi.

According to the book “How to Teach Your Baby to Read”, Doman recommends starting with five categories, taking five words from each category.  You can choose to follow either depending on your preference.  As usual, always follow your child’s lead…

The flashcards in this series are of objects you would find around the home.

For further details on how to use the slides, I recommend you check out my blog posts on How to Teach Your Baby (the Glenn Doman way) or you can read the book “How to Teach Your Baby to Read” by Glenn Doman.

Here is a snapshot of some of the flashcards in this series:

  1. Just wanted to say THANK YOU for posting the slideshows. I’ve made my own for Connor as well but it’s nice to have yours as a comparison and dare I say – a benchmark.

    Thank you again – it’s very generous of you to post them because I know from experience how much time it must have taken to make them.


  2. I don’t know about benchmark but it’s my pleasure. Just hate to see all my hard work sit idle after the few seconds it takes to flash them to the kids… :-p If enough mothers actually use it, then it makes it more worth while.
