Hi dayani, you’re most welcome and thank you for your kind words.
For flashcards, I usually use A5.

I use A4 for:
– Mathematics dot cards (cos need to squeeze in 100 dots at the end)
– famous paintings (to show the pictures clearly)
– song images and lyrics

A5 is easier to flash fast compared than A4.

Hope this helps.

P.S. I’m planning to do a Tutorial post on how to make flashcards.

Hi Lee Ying, my sandpaper letters pdf is from Karen Tyler’s Language Album, so not shared here. Only shared Chinese strokes and Numerals, which I created.

Hi there, I stumbled upon your blog while looking for a paediatrician in kl. I have a one yr old, n we live in the uk. I want to introduce the shichida method in his upbringing but unfortunately I couldn’t find much info from it online. I m currently in kl for 3wks, and would like to buy some materials to bring back to uk so I can teach my little one. You mentioned worksheets on your blog, what are they n where can I get them? Would you mind if i give you a call to ask more? This can save me time with to n fro emails as I m not able to access Internet much during this coming 3wks. Please email me by return. Thanks.

Hi Usha, thank you for visiting Mummy’s Homeschool! I received my Montessori albums when attending Karen Tyler’s Montessori course, suitable for teaching 2.5 to 6 years old. The review is here: http://www.mummysreviews.com/2012/02/01/review-karen-tyler-montessori-teacher-training-program/

Have fun! :)

Hi Mievee,

As i know u are using Epson Ink Jet Printer, I just bought mine L210. Somehow i find the colour printing is faded in its colour tone. Wondering did u facing the same problem?

Thank you.

mievee @ mummyshomeschool.com October 24, 2014 at 10:42 pm

Hi Gillian, mine is L800, which is a photo-printer with more ink cartridges (6 versus 4), so printing on art card produces normal colours.

Reply

Serena October 15, 2014 at 8:33 pm

Hi Gillian,
I also just bought L210, when I direct print on the art card. The colour will faded, but I print on the a4 paper is ok!

Gillian Soon October 16, 2014 at 9:31 am

Hi Serena,

My hubby pointed out the reason of getting faded is due to the art cards i used are matte finish type.

So last night we tried to print photo on photo paper and surprisingly the outcome is good. Guess i need to buy some glossy type of art card and try again see will it be better.

By the way, wondering if you print on normal paper, you cut and glue on art card?

Reply

mievee @ mummyshomeschool.com October 24, 2014 at 10:47 pm

Hihi Gillian & Serena, I bought art cards with 1 glossy side and 1 normal side (texture is like paper). Now I’m wondering if matte is different from no-finish?

When I printed on the glossy side, ink couldn’t be absorbed well and ran at the edges of each picture.
When I printed on the paper-like side, it was ok.

Yes, when printed on normal paper in the past, I cut (in bulk using paper trimmer) and glue on art card.

Serena October 18, 2014 at 2:27 pm

Yes, I print on A4 paper cut & glue on the art card. My art card is glossy type, but when I print on the 3rd paper above it will faded too..

Hi mummy..can you share with me if there’s any way to print the flashcard directly from printer in that exact size without having to do the cut n paste style since it’s time consuming?

And where do I get the template or softcopy file to print these flash card? Do I have to design it myself or buy from a particular source?

Apologies if these information are already shared by you and I missed it out..

Thanks: )

mievee @ mummyshomeschool.com April 27, 2015 at 11:03 pm

Hi Siti J, I’ve updated my method to printing directly. Here’s the blog post:

As for soft copy files, you may print get some free by joining Mummy’s Homeschool’s mailing list.
Some topical flashcards are downloadable here: http://www.figur8.net/resources/flashcards/general-knowledge-flashcards/
Some math ones are purchasable at my store, .

It’s always good to create some topical flashcards that your child loves. This would have maintain his interest in watching the entire set of cards. For my kids, they love cards on cars, buses, trains, etc. So I always have some of these in the week’s stack.

Hi Mievee,
I am a first time visitor to your site. I have heard a lot abt Schida method, but never attended any classes with my daughetr. Will you be able to guide me ? I am a bit confused after visitng your site. What is the best point to start for my 4.5 years old daugther ? Can I buy few of the general knowledge flashcards? I am ok to buy them as I dont have the time to make them. We know only english. (no chinese). Is there something else that you can suggest ? Any help in this regards will be highly appreciated.

Hi Mie Vee,

Thank you so much for providing all the useful tools and information for the general public. I am not sure if I it went through but I sent in a request last week to get a quote shipping quote to purchase the Shichida flash cards but have not heard from you. Let me know if you have gotten the request and is working on it or did it not go through?

Also, I have a question on speed reading. How do you do it? I have a 11 month old and so far I have just been reading from books and showing her the pages very quickly but I am not sure if that is the right way to do it but she seems to be interested. Do you run your fingers through the words and point to pictures in the book? Or is that for older kids? I also have a 3 year old who loves books and constantly wants me to read to her.

Reply

mievee @ mummyshomeschool.com January 18, 2017 at 6:38 am

Hi Paula, apologies for the overdue reply. Int’l shipping is being stalled at the moment. I’m trying to engage help and get it going again.

Speed reading: for a baby, I usually read at normal speed, talk about the story / pictures and fills his reactions. Then at high speed, with NO change of words or added comments. At high speed, it’s not necessary to point at words / pictures. Baby captures it like in flashcards.

If baby loves it, feel free to keep repeating to his delight.

For an older child, during the regular speed round, you may also point out phonetic sounds and answer his questions. Then move to high speed.

Hope this helps and all the best!

Jazz Tan November 7, 2017 at 3:43 pm

Hi MieVee,

May I know shall I buy the double glossy size for the flash card or just single side will do? If using single side glossy art card, which side shall I stick the adhesive paper? Thank you!

Reply

mievee @ mummyshomeschool.com November 14, 2017 at 10:37 pm

Hi Jazz, if you’re sticking paper on the card:
– 1 glossy side: for sticking the paper
– 2 glossy sides: the other side, you may use thick marker pen to write the word. I like to use marker pen on glossy side.

If you’re printing (eventually):
– need to test a sample on your printer. May not be able to print well on glossy side. If so, use paper-like surface.

Hope this helps!
