These 20 Boom digital task cards on the BOOM Learning website are great for teaching figurative language, especially while teaching remotely. Seven figure language types are included. These digital task cards can be accessed on a laptop, desktop, Chromebook, tablet, or any other mobile device that is able to access the internet. They can also be used on your Smartboard, so that the whole class can play. The most exciting things about these cards is that they are self-grading, allow you to track student progress and require no prep (no need to print, laminate or store).

This product includes:

  • A link to access 20 Digital Task Cards on Figurative Language (1 card per slide) on the BOOM Learning website
  • Teacher Notes on how to use these BOOM Cards™ in your classroom

These task cards feature one sentence per card, with the following 7 different Figurative Language devices, presented in a multiple choice format:

  • simile
  • metaphor
  • alliteration
  • personification
  • hyperbole
  • onomatopoeia
  • idiom

Please take a look at the thumbnail images and the preview file above to get a better idea of what the digital cards look like.
