Kids Flash Cards That Make Kids Smarter, Faster! By Robbie Johnson (parent & preschool educator) Kids flash cards are becoming increasingly popular as the #1 preschool resource (particularly for homeschooling but also in education-focussed preschool centers), and for good reason... Recent research has discovered the fact that a preschool child's brain has optimum operation and learning capabilities in the right hemisphere and that left- hemishere learning is inefficient without simultaneous image-based learning. So traditional teaching techniques that rely solely on the left-brain (logic, slow learning) don't actually work efficiently until much later in a child's development, and, even then only if the left and right brain hemispheres have already been sufficiently integrated. Preschool children learn best through their right-brain with images, which is why kids flash cards are so important. There are only a few providers of right-brain focussed cards, and only one or two that also provide how-to instructions and/or flash card DVDs to do it for you. Flash card DVDs provide the most consistent method of teaching preschool children and they also generally hold a child's attention for longer than mum or dad can! Kids Flash Cards Activate and Develop the Right Brain When the cards are flashed at high speed they develop a child's instant (photographic) memory - the right brain's memory is activated and it will develop quickly and easily. The Right Brain and Left Brain will be Connected When using right-brain cards, try to flash less than one second per card or as fast as you can and say the words on the back of the cards at the same time (make sure you find a brand of cards that does have the words on the back so you can read them easily as you rotate the cards to the front of the pack). The images are processed by the right brain and the words you speak are processed by the left brain. As a result, the child will also more easily learn new words through the activation of the left brain in conjunction with the right-brain images. Some kids flash cards systems are based on the incredibly successful Shichida Method and enables preschool children to easily reach their full intellectual potential - with a lifetime learning capacity often far beyond what we can imagine possible. “At the age of six, 70% of the brain is developed, and at around the age of 10, almost 90% of the brain is developed. To make corrections or changes later on will prove to be an incredibly hard task, and great effort will be needed for it. However, after succeeding to activate the right brain abilities, children can learn quite easily in any school." —Professor Makoto Shichida Shichida Methods offer a simple, successful way to form neurological pathways, effectively prepare your child for excelling in traditional, alternate or homeschool learning systems, and maximise their ability to preserve and develop their innate genius. ABOUT THE AUTHOR I am a dedicated parent, preschool educator, independent review writer and firm believer that kids flash cards are the way to go to help kids reach their full potential at an early age. If you're looking for some really great great kids flash cards, I can strongly recommend you take a look at UberKidsFlashCards.com — their system is a proven method to increase a child's learning capacity — and as they say; your kids will be smarter, faster!... (Oh, and I believe UberKids have got some fantastic Flash Card DVDs as well)
