Using Boom Cards in the Classroom



I have to tell you all, I am LOVING Boom Cards in my classroom. Even better, my students are loving them. If you are not familiar with Boom Cards click here to read about getting started.

How Am I Using Boom Cards?

Boom Cards are used in my classroom daily during Math Centers. During centers there is an option for "At Your Seat". Instead of having my students work with paper and pencil we utilize our laptops for Boom Cards.
Students use Boom Cards on laptops during centers.


Feedback From Students

Boom cards are still relatively new, and therefore my students have not been exposed to them. I know this because I am teaching coworkers about Boom Cards! Since they are new for my students there is a huge buy in from my students. One reason students are enjoying the cards is that they can work on them from home and redo sets that they enjoy.

Student Data

I created log ins for my students and assign all decks to my students. This allows me to collect data on my students, as well as analyze their errors.

With data and I am able to analyze that the student did not know or listen to the word. 

Great for Early Finishers

Including centers I have also left out laptops for students to complete ELA cards when they are finished with an assignment. My students quickly understand how to sign in and select their decks to complete. Decks do not require teacher support as there is audio included in some slides.

Homework

Send home your log in codes for your students to practice at home! During conferences I had some great feedback from parents that their child was excited to practice!
