What are Boom Cards?

Boom cards are simply put, digital task cards.  Students can complete a variety of activities from fill in the blank to drag and drop to clicking the right answer.  Boom Cards are fully digital and require internet access to play, but can be accessed from a computer, phone, I-pad or tablet.

Why should I want to use Boom Cards?

Boom cards are fun, engaging and provide immediate feedback for students who are working on them.  They can be shared on screen in programs like Zoom, for teachers to walk students through, or assigned individually to students to complete on their own.  Boom makes data tracking available so teachers can see student progress, how well they performed and even which answers they chose on each cards.  

Read sight words and vocabulary words then type the sentence you read.  Audio files included to help remind students of proper sentence structure.
Students read simple sentences and then type the sentence in the box.  This deck targets sight words and themed vocabulary words.

Is it free?

Boom does offer a free option.  This option allows up to 5 students in one class.  You do not, however, receive the data tracing.  Another way to use Boom for free is to assign the decks using a fast pin.  Fast pins do not allow for data tracking either, but you are able to assign these to as many students as needed.  Boom offers tears of membership depending on the size of your class or your individual teacher needs.  There are many free deck options to explore, or you can choose to purchase decks to use.

Drag and drop the correct ending punctuation on each sentence.
