These Boom Cards™ will help your students with reading comprehension by answering Who? questions in this 25 card deck. These reading passages are designed for grade K-2 depending on your level of students (possibly high kindergarten, most first grade, and second grade students).

In this deck of self-checking digital task cards:

  • Students will read each story and questions independently.
  • NOTE!! The stories, questions, and choices are NOT read aloud to the student. Students should use picture clues provided to help students figure out (decode) words in the stories.
  • This deck has 25 different stories.
  • Each story is on one card with one Who? question about the story. The cards in this deck are randomized so that the cards are in a different order each time the deck is played.
  • Students will choose from four multiple choice answers by selecting the correct answer from the story. Students should look back in the story to find the answer (finding the evidence in the text).
  • Answer choices include names.
  • Correct answers are rewarded with a bell sound which automatically advances students to the next card.
  • Incorrect answers hear “whoops” and students must keep trying until the correct answer is chosen.
  • There are 25 cards in this deck of self-checking cards.

This deck of cards is great for center time, early finishers, homework, distance learning, and so much more!

**Be sure to take a look at the preview and click on the link included in the preview to play a sample of the task cards.

NOTE: When you purchase this resource, you will not download the cards. In the purchase download, you will find a link that says "Click Here to Redeem Your Boom Cards!" This link will take you to the Boom Learning℠ website where you will access the task cards. You will be required to create an account (FREE or you can upgrade) or to sign in if you already have an account. You will assign the cards to your students.

**This single license allows only you to use the cards with all of your classroom students.

Students can use a free option called "Fast Play" or your can upgrade to track student data. Fast Play is useful if you are using a free account or using Boom Cards in a group activity (like a smart board). Fast Pins do not record student progress, but are great for demonstration, teaching, or practice. Fast Play does NOT collect individual student data, so it is not appropriate if you want to track student performance. You can upgrade to a premium account to track data and have more options.

What are Boom Cards?

A set of Boom Cards is called a Boom Deck. Boom Cards are digital (hosted online), self-checking (No grading for you AND students get instant feedback), task cards. You can assign cards to all of your students at once or differentiate for groups in your class(es). There is no need for printing, laminating or cutting!

**Use the fast pin links to assign task cards to students via e-mail, Seesaw, or Google Classroom. Read HERE for more details!

How Do I Use Boom Cards?
