11+ VERBAL REASONING VOCABULARY FLASH CARDS
– Build confidence & vocabulary knowledge
Farquhar’s Vocabulary Flash Cards have been specifically created by mother of two, Mary Farquhar, to help improve children’s verbal reasoning skills and ultimately succeed in the 11+ Entrance Examination.
Flash cards are a powerful learning tool; simple and versatile and used regularly will boost both confidence and results. To succeed in a verbal reasoning paper a well-developed vocabulary is essential.
Mary Farquhar commented: “The competitive nature of the 11+ can make it a very stressful time for both children and parents. Both of my sons were avid readers but it was the vocabulary area of the 11+ tests that they found most daunting. I decided to break down some of the lists into a series of flash cards and concentrate on a few each day. As the pile of learnt cards grew so did the boys’ confidence. “
Mary has liaised with various tutors to identify specific words that children regularly struggle with in mock exams. All of the words have appeared in 11+ practise material.
Sian Goodspeed from Flying Start Tuition in Chesham commented: “Great cards for building vocabulary in preparation for the 11+. An invaluable time-saving device for busy parents and tutors!”
The vocabulary flash cards are available as a pack of 3 structured sets.:
Level 1 – Confidence building
Level 2 – Serious about vocabulary
Opposites – Synonyms and antonyms
In response to demand from tutors, teachers and parents, Mary has also introduced a new set of Compound Words.
Each set contains 100 double sided cards, showing a key word with a child-friendly definition and a list of synonyms / related compound words.
