How to Make Flashcards on Word
Flashcards are an excellent study tool for learners of all ages. They are easy to create, portable, and effective when it comes to memorizing information. With Microsoft Word, you can create flashcards that suit your learning requirements – and without needing to use an online flashcard-making service. Here’s how to make flashcards on Word:
Step 1: Open Microsoft Word and Create a New Document
To get started, open Microsoft Word on your computer, and create a new document. Select the “Page Layout” tab, then click on the “Size” tab for an extensive dropdown menu. From there, choose the size you want for your flashcards. Standard flashcards usually come in sizes 3” x 5” or 4” x 6”. However, you can choose any size that works for you.
Step 2: Change the Orientation
To make the most out of your paper, you need to change the orientation of your document. Head to the “Page Layout” tab again and click on “Orientation” to choose either landscape or portrait. (Landscape is usually ideal for flashcards because it lets you fit two cards on one page)
Step 3: Design Your Flashcards
Once you’ve chosen the size and orientation of your document, it’s time to start designing your flashcards. To mark the separation between cards, you can use the “Insert” Tab, click “Shapes,” then insert a shape that works for you (a rectangle or square). Then, resize that shape to cover the whole rectangular document. To add content to each of your flashcards, simply select the shape and the document area within, and then insert text, an image or anything you want to add using the “Insert” tab.
Step 4: Print Your Flashcards
After designing your flashcards – don’t forget to print! Microsoft Word makes it easy to print multiple pages at once. If your flashcards measure 4” x 6,” you may be able to get two flashcards per page, making printing easier and far more economical.
In conclusion, making flashcards on Microsoft Word is extremely simple and customizable to your needs. Before long, you’ll have your study materials ready to memorize, revise and learn with. Happy studying!
