Better Known Songs

Song SheetFor children's work, it is well worth the time to copy out the better known songs on sheets of card, two or three times the size of normal flash cards. Rounding the corners of the children's flash cards will also help them travel better and a clear book covering may be useful in protecting them from sticky fingers! For the little children, ordinary upper case lettering rather than bubble or ladder lettering may be more legible.

Words and Actions

Upper case letters on flash cards may be best for little children as this is how they first learn to read. No matter how you write out the sheets, be sure to speak the words out loud anyway for those who cannot read. Actions will further help to remind them of the words as in "Zacchaeus was a very little man," or "The wise man built his house upon the rock," or "If I were a butterfly." Many of the children's songs have memorable words when combined with had actions.
