Using Boom Cards in Your Classroom

Boom cards are self-checking digital task cards available on the Boom Learning website. They’re super easy to access and use, and I hear all the time from teachers how much students love using them.

What I love most about Boom cards is that they’re interactive, so they’re great for practicing TEI skills like drag and drop, typing in a text box, and selecting a multiple-choice answer.

Boom cards are such a nice break from worksheets! They’re actually fun for students to review place value and practice comparing, ordering, and rounding numbers.

There are TONS of ways you can use Boom cards in your math lessons! Pre-tests, mini-lessons, independent practice, small group work, reteaching, enrichment, test prep…
