Mini Flash Cards

MiniFlashCards_653x490Mini Flash Cards

Years and years of flipping flash cards for the One Minute Club has left its toll on my old set of mini flash cards. I needed a new set, and while I was at it, I made a few changes. I moved up the placement of the staves so that my thumb has a place to hold the card without covering the bass notes. Then it popped into my head that some of my students with learning problems might do better if the bass and treble clefs are different colors. So far it’s really helped. Let me know if you think it’s a good idea, too. Of course, you can always print them on the same color card stock. I do not recommend laminating these cards if you plan to use them for speed.

The nice thing about mini flash cards is that they can sit on your piano all the time and not get in the way.

There are only two pages to this printable, one page for the treble clef and on for the bass. I know some of you are wondering, where are the ledger line mini-cards? Well, they are coming. Check back in a few days!

If you are looking for larger flash cards and a file with answers to print on the back, click here for the flash cards and here for the reverse side with the answers. This is a good set for parents to print out for their children.

  1. Wow! I colleague recommended your sight because she loved your many games and activities and I can see why. I too appreciate your heart for your students and many excellent materials. Thanks also for your generosity in sharing them with us.

    I really needed some new ones, and I am not yet able to make things on the computer.
    Good idea putting them on the grand staff too. Thanks you…

    These are a terrific size! And room for my thumb…..that is just pure genius!

    While I often use red for treble notes and blue for bass, I think that lighter colored card stock may be easier to read when attempting the one minute drill. The set I just printed are yellow and springy green! I can’t wait to use them tomorrow.

    As always, thank you for sharing and helping us!

    I use green for bass clef (grass) and blue for treble (sky)…another teacher uses these colors in her teaching (can’t think of who right at the moment!). I also use those colors when highlighting.

    There is a set like this in the W. Schaum lesson book series. It has treble and bass clefs on both sides ( one side is upside down),
    So you get 4 notes for each card. A very good
    Idea! I use them for the One Minute Club.
    Thank you Susan!!!!
