    “DIVE” and then “Draw”….as your word bank has “DRIVE” as in drive a car….

    But overall great cues!!!

    • Karen

      Oopsy! I’ve updated the two printable word lists as well as the list on this page.

      Thanks for catching that!

    Hi, just wanted to say that your material is FANTASTIC! My son has speech and processing delays, and his SLP assigns homework in between our weekly sessions. The one we are working on now is conversation starters, and these flash cards have been a life saver! So much good stuff all in one place, it’s unbelievable! Thanks for making this available to learners of ALL kinds!

    I have recently started teaching English classes on-line in a one-to-one setting. My students are all EL learners from China. These cards are AWESOME for reinforcing the lesson, exposing students to more vocabulary, and just wrapping up a lesson in fun ways! I’ve also used them for assessing a student vocab/reading skills when working with a student that is new to me. Thanks so much. I love these flashcards. Wonderful tool for teachers in various settings.

    • Karen

      Thanks for the feedback! It’s great to hear that you’ve found multiple uses for the cards ๐Ÿ˜€

    I have my doubts about swim, You swim in the water, and there is someone jumping the rope in the picture. I have never used swim for a different action.

    • Karen

      The word list doesn’t line up with the picture cards perfectly– I think you might be looking at the wrong card. There is a card for “jump” and another card for “water ski” which have ropes in them. The card for swim does not have a rope.

    I am a co-founder of a small private Christian school. Thank you so much for sharing your cards. These are going to be used daily!! God bless you!!!
