 More About these flashcards and teaching materials:

These flashcards and vocabulary teaching materials are all PDF files to be opened online and printed. The large flashcards are full page, but using the PDF print features you can make small flashcards as well. There are some small game cards you can print and most sets have ready to print bingo cards to match. The small game cards work well for vocabulary games, board games and for use in other language games to build the students' lexicon or grammar via use. For more information see the classroom language games section.

The handout can be printed off and given out to students to collect in a vocabulary builder folder. They can also take them home and use them for games and language practice.

These materials are integrated in to other teaching materials on this site and there is a lot more you can do with the same vocabulary sets across other MES sites. You can find listening materials, vocabulary worksheet makers, online games to practice this vocabulary and more.
