You have got to try Boom Cards! These digital task cards are easy to use and keep students engaged in meaningful practice. Not only will your students love them – you will too!
A couple of years ago I stumbled across this relatively new platform and I fell in love! I tested Boom Cards out with my students at the end of the school year. Boom Learning provided great paperless practice for my kids and they really enjoyed it! Whenever they had extra time, they would beg to work on the Boom Learning app! Wow! I can't say no when they WANT to practice skills!
What you will love
1. Boom Cards are digital!
For you this means no printing, cutting, laminating, storing and NO CLUTTER! Boom Learning gamifies practice to keep students interested. My kids had a blast buying new avatars with the points they earned by answering questions.
Boom Cards can be used on ANY internet connected device – NO capability issues! Also, you can assign decks to individual students or the whole class. Students can use the Boom Learning app at home or at school. Boom Cards are perfect for a whole class setting, math stations, and individuals practice.
