These free self-checking Boom Cards will make learning math and literacy skills both fun and effective!
What are Boom Cards?
Boom cards are interactive digital activities that are often self-checking! They are hosted on the Boom platform which allows teachers to create or purchase digital activities and assign them to their students.
A group of slides are often called a slide deck. A slide deck is very similar to a group of task cards. Only these task cards are paperless and done digitally instead.
Why You Will Love Boom Cards
- Easy to differentiate - You can assign different decks to students. Plus, you are able to customize decks in a variety of ways. You can hide specific slides that you don't want to use, set how many cards from each deck you want them to see per play, choose if you want students to see the correct answer after giving up on a card, and more! *Note: Students must be logged in for these settings to be utilized.
- Audio Instruction - Another key area is how easy Boom Learning makes it for creators to add audio. Many decks give verbal instructions and guidance throughout the lessons! Perfect for students who are distance learning or working independently!
- Interactive - They are also fantastic when it’s come to interactivity. They have made it incredibly easy to drag moveable pieces to the correct spots. No need to double click and no worries about accidentally resizing pieces like in Google Slides.
- Self Checking - Boom Cards absolutely stand out above the rest with their ability to instantly give students feedback on their answers. This not only gives them accountability while working independently, but it also makes the activities much more effective!
- Saves time - For a very reasonable price, you can get a paid account that tracks student progress. The cards are automatically graded and you can see how each student did on every slide in the deck. This will save you SO much time!

These boom cards will make distance learning less stressful and more effective!
This deck includes 15 rhyming word work task cards. Students will use a picture of words such as “cat,” “truck,” and “cake,” to determine words that rhyme with them. The boom cards have a picture of the word along with the word in audio. Underneath the picture are three objects. Students will use the slides in an interactive way by dragging a checkmark from the side over the picture that rhymes with the word and illustration on the slide. This allows them to practice their rhyming skills along with sounding out words. Click here to get the free deck!

Once they have identified what number it is, they will drag that many bugs over to the jar. This continues until they have gone through all of the cards you have assigned. Audio instructions are included on each card. Click here to get the free deck!
