Have you noticed how cheap flashlights have gotten? It seems like everywhere I go there are cute, colorful LED Flashlights! Have you also
noticed how much kids love flashlights? When you put both of these things together, you have an opportunity to make some magic happen in
There are 32 CVCE Magic Flashlight Cards.
The magic happens when students hold the flashlight behind the card and the "e" magically appears. Take the flashlight away and it's gone.
My students LOVE this and I know your's will too!
Start by printing the cards on card stock. Since ink isn’t getting any cheaper, I have include colored and black and white versions. :)
Choose the colored version or the black and white. They both work great! To print, you must print on both sides of the paper. This can be tricky if you aren't sure how to set up your printer. So you don’t waste paper and ink, do some test prints with scrap paper until you figure out how to get them double sided using your printer. I use
ink/toner saver mode to do this. There is a picture of my settings. I have an HP Laser Jet Pro 400. My printer doesn’t print double sided
automatically when I print on card stock, so I have to manually insert the pages. This took a couple of practice trials to see if I needed
to flip on the long side or the short. The short side was the one for me. Your printer will probably be different.
It will definitely be worth your effort, though.
Once you get the cards printed, laminated and hole punched, put them on a loose leaf ring and let the magic begin.
You could start with the activity in a small group and move it to a station/center. Set down some rules about using the flashlights, not
shining them in anyone’s eyes and being sure to turn them off. To see the magic, hold the flashlight behind the card. Move it around until
you see the “e”.
Now your all set! Enjoy!
