ESL Flash Wheels - Colors

ESL Flash Wheels - Colors

Put some spin on your flash card work! Kids will love these flash card wheels. You’ll be amazed to see kids practicing just for fun! And they couldn’t be easier to make! Print, cut and clip together. I recommend printing on heavier stock paper and laminating them for longer life in the classroom. Fastening them together can be done simply by pinning them to a board, using round head expansion fasteners, or using a knotted string or ribbon. The “?” square can be cut out or used as a flap by cutting out three sides of the square.
