If you click on the "sheet" at the bottom, you get the word list, if you click on "gadget" you get the actual flash cards. You can use mine as a template or use the official one at Google Flash Card gadget
**Important Note: My students had some difficulty accessing my flash cards! I was sure I had set them up with easy access. I learned, after the first class couldn’t access them, that they need to be set up so that anyone can access them. Giving the link only seems to work if the recipient is logged in to their google account; otherwise they must ask for permission to access. I should have read the details more closely the first time, but in my enthusiasm I must have missed that. My students were then able to access the cards from both school and at home. I emailed the link home so that parents would know what we were studying and that a tool for review was available.
I especially like the options that are available for the flashcard user. Reverse allows the reader to see the definition and guess the vocabulary word and shuffle mixes up the order of the flashcards. Giving anyone access to the cards only allows them to use the cards, but I kept the editing privilege for myself. I have already created more for the next unit that my students are working on, and by the time we get to the assessment review the students will be able to use all of the sets to review. I think that this is such a great tool and incredibly easy to set up and use. I can’t wait to see what else I find!
If you want to start one from scratch, it is really easy to do. You can open a new Google Docs spreadsheet, and then go to Insert, Gadget, and then choose from any gadget listed. There are many to choose from!
