How To Make Free Flashcards the Quick & Easy Way

How much time do you spend searching for therapy materials and making them?  If you are like me, you often feel like you are just spending too much time making therapy cards.

I am going to share with you my little therapy card “trade secret”.  It’s super easy, and even better- it’s free!  All you have to do is go to Quizlet (http://quizlet.com/).  This is a terrific site; it is a virtual community of people who use flash cards, make them and SHARE them.  To join, all you have to do is create a user name plus password.  You can search by topic and Quizlet will populate the results section with a myriad of choices for you to grab and print.  Or, better yet, (yes- it gets better!), you can upload whatever deck of flashcards that you want from Quizlet onto your iPad.  Poof!  Immediately, you have a deck of flashcards to use in your therapy or lesson.  No hassle, no cutting, no laminating, no fuss.  Now, if you do want to use the iPad as a platform for your flashcards, it will be necessary to have a “flashcard App”.  I like to use  the free App, “Cardboard”  (http://slidetorock.com/apps/Cardboard-flashcards-for-iPad.html).  There are other free flashcard apps such as, “Brainscapes” (https://www.brainscape.com/) and  “Flashcards Delux” (http://orangeorapple.com/Flashcards/).  It’s easy, it’s quick, and it’s even kind of fun to see how creative some people are in the Quizlet community!
