Celebrate Digital Learning Day with Digital Task Cards

Do you use task cards in your classroom? If you answered YES, then you should give Boom Learninga try because it is basically a task card’s trendier cousin aka a digital task card. Boom decks can be used on interactive whiteboards, computers, and tablets that have modern browsers (released within the last three years).

There are many things to like about Boom Cards™, but here are some reasons why I LOVE them:


1. Boom Cards™ are paperless! They are ah-mazing because they save time. There is no need to print, laminate, and cut! Anything that saves time is a win in my book.

2. They are self-checking. Yes, you read that correctly. Students receive instant feedback while working through the cards. Sounds indicate whether a student has answered correctly or incorrectly.

3. You can access data. In today’s teaching world data collection is important. Collecting data with Boom Cards™is quick and efficient because it does it for you!

Aren’t they amazing?

Using Boom Cards
Boom Cards™can be used whole class, individually, or as a math center. They can also be assigned through Google Classroom (my personal favorite!).

You can find Boom Cards™directly on Boom Learning or you can purchase them on Teachers Pay Teachers. In order to use Boom Cards™you will need an account. There are several different account options. Free accounts include the ability to play purchased cards on interactive whiteboards and with individual students using Fast Play. Fast Play does not record student progress and will not gather data.

If you purchase a deck from Teachers Pay Teachers you will get, for three months, at no charge, the premium feature of student progress reporting. This free promotion is for 150 students. At the end of the three-month window, you will need to renew the account to continue having access to student progress reporting. Customers receiving the promotion will be able to upgrade to a higher service level account and to buy points to purchase additional decks like any other customer.
There are so many ways to use Boom Cards™ in the classroom. They can even be assigned for homework. Find some of my favorite decks here.

  1. My middle school students love using Boom cards. I love checking out the data on them. Finding something engaging that gives great data can be difficult. Thanks.

  2. I have just recently been introduced to Boom Cards and my kids and I love them. We use them for review and Fast Finishers (student who get done early). I have also used them for small group challenges where the winning team gets bonus points. I am interested in learning how to make them.

  3. I use task cards as muchas I can in the classroom…kids love them! But, Boom Cards are new to me. They sound like so much fun! I can't wait to check out your favorites and create an account. Thank you so much for this helpful info! 🙂

  4. I am definitely looking into Boom Cards now! My students are younger, but I love how BC are self-checking. My young students thrive on instant feedback and this would be a great resource to use. Thanks for the information!

These are great and my student loves them! These Boom Cards are perfect for my students to provide extra assignments to continue reinforcing the skills they are working on in their general ed class (virtually). I wish I had the skills to create them myself!

I love the way the graphic organizers are scaffolded so that students work on each step of a RACES answer. I'm a tutor who works with students with language LDs and this approach has been fantastic for them. Having the editable graphic organizers makes it easy for me to keep creating new and different pages for students who need to extra practice on a particular part of the RACES answer. Thank you so much!

Amazing resource! Students loved working on this to show their parents during fall conferences. Their faces lit up as they went through the slides and read aloud their goals for the trimester and what they were proud of.
