Printable reading & math flashcards from K5 Learning
Chose your subject:
Flashcards are one of the most effective ways for motivated learners to study and retain factual knowledge. Students who use flashcards:
- engage a mental faculty known as active recall (remembering a concept from scratch rather than staring at a passage in a textbook);
- engage metacognition (by looking at the answer on the back they reflect on how well they answered compared to the correct answer on the back), and this metacognition tends to ingrain memories deeper into your knowledge;
- engage in confidence-based repetition (as flashcards are loose and can be separated into piles based on whether (or how often) you need to study them again). This repetitive practice is the most optimal way to improve memory of facts.
