Hands up if your kids are also learning at home with digital learning resources? It is quite a time to be a school kid! My one kid loves it, the other one, not so much. But, it is good to have technology at our hands to use in this trying time. I am going to list all the digital learning resources I have made on Boom cards here, have a browse, play the previews(free), kids love these Boom cards and so do parents and teachers!
What are Boom cards?
Boom is a digital platform for learning. It presents like a game, hence the words card and deck. Children love to play Boom cards since it feels like a game and not just learning out of a book. Parents can join for their children as can teachers for their class. Teachers will find that Boom has brilliant ways to track progress remotely too.
We have a variety of literacy activities for younger students from Pre-K to early elementary in our store the Teach me Store. (There are more activities still in the making!) Mostly literacy, since that is my area of expertise, but you will find other decks there too. Some are free too! Scroll down for our updated list!
To use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the Internet. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Apps are available for Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires. For security and privacy, adults must have a Boom Learning account to use and assign Boom Cards.
You will be able to assign the Boom Cards you are buying with “Fast Pins,” (play provides instant feedback for self-grading Boom Cards). Fast Play is always a free way for students to engage with Boom Cards decks. This is great for teachers teaching remotely. For additional assignment options you’ll need a premium account. If you are new to Boom Learning, you will be offered a free trial of the premium account.
You may be eligible for a free trial from Boom Learning. Read here for details: http://bit.ly/BoomTrial. If you choose not to stay on a premium account after your free trial, you will still be able to assign all your Boom Cards to as many students as you see fit using Fast Play pins (which give instant feedback for decks that are self-grading).
