Flashcards are a great tool for memorization and studying, but buying them can be expensive. Did you know that you can easily make your own flashcards using Microsoft Word? In this tutorial, we will show you how to create flashcards using Word.
First, type out the list of words you want to use. Once you have your list ready, highlight all the words and go to the “Insert” tab. Click on the “Tables” icon and then select “Convert Text to Table”. Make sure to leave everything as it is and click “OK”.
Now, go to the “Layout” tab and change the height to two inches and width to 3.25. Sometimes the width may change, but this size works well for flashcards. To utilize the empty space, move the other words to the other side by clicking on the box and selecting “Columns” > “Number 2”.
Once you have two columns, go back to the “Layout” tab and align the words to the center. This will make your flashcards look neat and organized. To clean up the words, remove capitalized letters by going to the “Home” tab and selecting “Case” > “Lower Case”.
Next, change the font size to 48 or adjust it to fit your preference. Double-check your words and adjust the font size as needed. If you want to add blanks for extra words, right-click on the last box, select “Insert” > “Rows Below”, and add your new words later.
Finally, check your work by doing a print preview. Make sure that all the words are aligned correctly before printing. Once you’re satisfied, print out your flashcards on cardstock or thicker paper for durability.
In conclusion, creating flashcards on Word is a straightforward process. With a little bit of time and effort, you can make your own personalized flashcards for studying or memorization. Happy studying!
