Introducing: Studyclix Flashcards for Teachers

By Nessa Dinneen - 3 minute read

Here you can find our Leaving Cert and Junior Cycle Flashcards, along with tips on how you can use them in your classroom as a learning resource.

Flashcards have been a popular memorising tool among teachers and students for decades. When done properly, flashcards can be an efficient method of getting students to retain information as they are learning through active recall.

With Studyclix’s Flashcards, we’ve taken the hassle out of making your own and produced high quality and relevant flashcards for the Leaving Cert and Junior Cert syllabuses.

How do they work?

Click on the subjects below to see the topics where flashcards are available. They can be accessed through the 'Videos & Notes' section of the topic. Typically, the term is on the front side and you can tap the flashcard to flip it and see the definition on the other side. Use the previous and next buttons to move through the deck.

Students have access to the same flashcards. Use the share button to send any flashcard deck to your students for homework or revision. Please note that only students with a Plus or Premium account can access the full deck while students on a Basic account can access the first 5 flashcards only.

The full deck can also be downloaded and printed to use in class. Below is an example of what the flashcards look like in a PDF. There are 4 flashcards per 1 A4 sheet. Cut the flashcards horizontally and fold them vertically down the middle so that the keyword is on the front and the definition is on the back.

What subjects are they available in?

We have flashcards in the following subjects:

Leaving Cert

Junior Cycle

Using Flashcards in the Classroom

If your school has a laminator we highly recommend you laminate the flashcards. If not, try to print the flashcards on thick card rather than paper. Flashcards in the classroom are passed between many students so it’s important to keep them intact!

Flashcards can be used in a variety of fun activities. Here are some examples:

Pair Up

Divide students into pairs and give each pair a set of flashcards. Ask the students to take turns quizzing each other on the definitions. One student holds a flashcard up on the keyword side while the student sitting opposite them has to answer with the corresponding definition/vocab word. Repeat the exercise until they answer all the flashcards correctly before switching. Mix it up now and then by getting students to give the keyword for the definition instead.

Around The World

To play this game, get the students to stand up and form a circle. Choose a pair of students to go head to head to begin the game. To start, hold a flashcard up and the first student to say the corresponding word first gets to move on and compete with the next person as the other students shifts ahead in the circle. The goal is to get all the way around the circle and back to the student’s original spot.

Memory Matching

To play this game, two sets of flashcards must be printed out. Get students to stand over a table and lay one set of flashcards definition side up and the second set facing up the keyword side up. Have students take turns making a match until all the flashcards are matched up. For added competition, introduce races and time trials!

Get Creative!

Depending on the subject and flashcard topic, without using words, get students to draw or act out a definition for their pair/team to guess. This will allow them to have a bit of fun while learning the definitions.
