The Purpose of Speed Play Flash Cards

Showing flash cards to children is not specifically for giving knowledge to children. There are four important reasons for showing flash cards to children:

  1. High speed flash cards activates the right brain.
  2. It develops the child’s photographic memory function. Children usually learn with their left brain memory function. However, when they are given information at high speed, the right brain memory is activated and developed.
  3. It helps develop the connection between the left and right brain. During a flash card session, pictures are shown while words are spoken at the same time. This helps the connection between both brains because the pictures and images are processed by the right brain, while languages are processed by the left brain. Flashing cards strengthen both processes.
  4. It activates the left brain and teaches your child language.
