This first official set of Brashcards includes 96 sentences with a common ancient history theme. Beginning with Creation and with simple sentence construction, the cards will provide students with an opportunity to practice their diagramming skills in increasing detail as they progress all the way to the resurrection of Jesus and compound-complex constructions.
Designed with 4 cards per sheet (week), there are 24 weeks' worth of cards for students to use. Laminate the cards for extra durability and to allow students to write on the fronts of the cards with markers as they parse each word. After they're finished, simply flip over the card to determine whether their parsing and diagram is correct.
This product is a digital download: by your purchase, you are acknowledging that no physical cards will be shipped to you. The product is a PDF file that can be downloaded and viewed on a computer or printed on card stock and cut to make 96 individual cards (sized 5.5" x 4.25").
