Uhmnn... I�d also love to get more ideas for how to use flashcards, but I can�t find Vickii�s Flashcard fan club. Is it another website or one of Vickii�s workshets here?
Thanks for helping!  Smile

Sasa, in the same web page I found these games for the flashcards

Five flashcard games

1. Alphabet game

Take six flashcards and give one each to six children. Children have to look at the item on their card and line up in alphabetical order. You can also turn this into a team game. Divide children into groups of six and give each group a different set of flashcards. The first team to line up in the correct alphabetical order is the winner.

2. Little by little

Choose a flashcard, cover it with a piece of card and hold it up for the class to see. Ask �What is it?� Move the piece of card so that you reveal a bit of the flashcard beneath. Keep revealing a bit more of the flashcard until children guess what it is.

3. Spelling game

Divide the class into two teams, A and B. Put a flashcard on the board. Choose a child from Team A to come and write the word on the board next to the card. Award one point if the child identifies the object correctly, and one point for the correct spelling. Then choose another flashcard and ask a child from Team B to come and write the word. The team with the most points at the end is the winner.

4. What�s different?

Put ten flashcards on the board. Ask children to close their eyes. Swap the position of two of the cards. Tell children to open their eyes and ask �What�s different?� Children say the two cards that have changed position.

5. Disappearing cards

Put six flashcards on the board. Point to them one at a time and children say the word. Remove a card. Children say the words again, including the card that has been removed. Repeat the process until children are chanting all the words with no picture prompts.
