You read that right- Boom cards are the perfect task card. Interactive, colorful, self-checking, and fun!
Have you tried a Boom deck yet?
More reasons to try this perfect task card!
Let’s take a close look at why Boom cards are so great!
- No printing, no cutting, no laminating. (Yes, we love our normal printable task cards, but we also love easy- #right.)
- No worry about ink- which goes back to no printing! I am having so much fun designing background scenes for the sets. Printing any of these would just not work!
- Self-checking! When a student hits the wrong answer they get immediate feedback.
- Students can complete Boom cards anywhere- as long as they have access to the Internet and a personal device.
- You can assign decks through Google Classroom or many other online platforms.
- You can use partial decks if you need differentiation. A lot of my decks have easier problems to start and then get progressively more difficult. You can assign students to complete the sections needed.
- You can display a deck on your smartboard and have the class use the task cards as a whole group!
What do you need to get started?
You and your students will need:
- You need a computer, tablet, Chromebook, or interactive whiteboard.
- You need an internet browser that is less than 3 years old. Safari and Chrome both work.
- You must have an internet connection.
You must also have a Boom account:
Boom Learning offers a 90-day free trial.
If you only use Fast Pins, a free account is all you need. If you need to set up classes and access data from student accounts, you will need the $15 account.

Now, let’s look at some of my sets!
These two are from my Science Boom card line and I love them both. One is for Animal Adaptations and one is for Landforms. Both have photos and clipart. The colors are gorgeous, aren’t they?
The two above are both math sets. Both are fourth grade level, but can easily be used for upper third graders or fifth graders that need practice. The space-themed set features division and the classroom-themed set features finding factors and multiples.
These two sets are both for third graders. The “monster” themed set is addition and subtraction. The area and perimeter set features grids and a flower theme.
And, finally, grade five sets! The zoo-theme on the left features solving problems using order of operations. I love the decor on this one! On the right is a set about finding the volume of 3-D shapes and I used dot people and watercolor decor.
I have so many sets in each grade level and add more all the time. My holiday sets are my current favorites because of the fun backgrounds!
