BOOM cards are digital task cards that require NO PREP and are self-checking. This is a super-motivating way to teach new concepts or review and provide practice for previously taught lessons.
Students read the analogue clock and click on the button to match it to the digital time. They are required to read time to the hour and half hour. The deck can be used independently at home or in class, for centres, rotations or small group work, to provide practice or as an assessment. It can even be projected onto an interactive whiteboards for large group use.
The deck has 20 cards that may be used all at once or in smaller groups. They will play randomly unless you change the settings in “Custom Play Settings”.
