Rule Cards

Rule cards can be a very useful study aid for students in any grade. They can be used in any subject. A rule card simply consists of a rule on the front side and one or two examples of the rule on the back.  Students can add examples throughout the school year.  By carrying the rule cards with them, students can gain mastery of the rules through frequent review.
