This is the easy part! Once you’ve uploaded the flash cards to your Kindle account, simply open up your Kindle or your Kindle app.
Download the file onto your device and you’ll see the images appear! Swipe the pages to “flip” through the flash cards just as if you were holding them. The great thing is, you can use the cards vertically or horizontally, depending on what works best for the design.
Flash cards will work best on the following types of devices (as long as it has the Kindle Reader App ):
There is more than one way to do this.
- If you have an actual Kindle reader, you can simply transfer the files from your hard drive to your Kindle device via a USB cable. Plug the cable into your computer and into your Kindle and bring up the reader’s file. Bring up the file on your hard drive where your downloads are stored, and drag and drop them into the reader file. Easy peasy!
- You can also send the .PDF files via email to your Kindle account and they will show up within minutes on your actual device (or app, if you’re not using the Kindle reader). Log in to your Kindle account on Amazon, and click on “Personal Document Settings” from the sidebar on the left. Your settings will show you what your Kindle email address is (it’s usually a variation of your user name with @kindle.com on the end). Simply compose an email and address it to your Kindle address. Attach the .PDF files of your flash cards to the email (I think you’re allowed to send up to 5 files at a time), and hit Send! The files will appear on your Kindle or in your app in just a few minutes (or the next time you sync). There’s no need to type in a subject line or anything in the message area; just be sure you add the attachments and that’s all you need. This option is perfect for those who don’t have an actual reader, but instead use the Kindle Reader App on a different digital device.
These flash cards are from Confessions of a Homeschooler's K4 Curriculum.
- Kindle Fire
- Tablet (any kind)
- Smart Phone (ideally one with a large screen like the Samsung Galaxy)
I don’t recommend a regular Kindle for this purpose because it’s black and white and would be difficult to utilize as a visual aid. I also don’t think a Nook reader would work because as far as I understand, you can’t download .PDF files to Nooks (but I don’t actually have a Nook so I could be wrong about that).
This week’s Ultimate Homemaking Bundle is chock full of some awesome educational resources, including an entire K4 curriculum, and a K5 alphabet/phonics curriculum. Besides that, you’ll find eBooks on home-schooling and child-rearing, as well as several different types of organizers, planners, and other household helps! Altogether, there is more than $700 worth of products (including the bonus items) that will benefit every homemaker, and the cost is just $29.97. (But only until May 4!)
