Are you looking for a cool way to jazz up your math lessons? Well, look no further, because today, we're diving into the world of Boom™ Cards!
WHAT ARE BOOM CARDS?
Boom cards are interactive, self-checking digital task cards that make learning maths a blast. These little gems live on the BoomTM Learning platform, and they're like digital math wizards, helping you bring the magic of math to your classroom.
WHY SHOULD I USE BOOM CARDS?
1. They are fun!
Boom cards are interactive and eye-catching, instantly grabbing the attention of your young learners. Drag-and-drop, multiple-choice, and fill-in-the-blank activities turn math problems into games! You can also find Boom cards for English, HASS, Science, Languages and much, much more.
2. Students can work at their own pace.
Boom Cards are flexible. Students can tackle math concepts at their own pace. If they ace a topic, they can zoom ahead. If they need some extra help, no worries, they can take their time.
3. There is instant feedback.
When students complete a card, they'll know right away if they got it right or if they need to have another try. This takes the pressure off those students who don’t like to be wrong!
4. It is easy to provide differentiated learning.
As teachers, we know that every student is unique. With Boom Cards, you can allocate different decks for each kid or group. Need extra practice for one student? No problem. Want to challenge another? You got it!
5. You can track your students’ progress.
Want to be in the know about how your students are doing? Boom Learning gives you data on their performance. With an account, you can access detailed reports on user activity, including information on logged-in users, completed student decks, completion times, and performance results. The reports section contains a wealth of valuable information.
6. No More Printing:
Say goodbye to endless printing! Boom Cards are accessible on all sorts of devices, from phones and tablets to laptops and computers. So, your students can learn in the classroom or at home.
7. Endless Topics and Formats:
Boom Cards have got you covered, whether you're working on basic arithmetic, more advanced math concepts, or anything in between. They're perfect for drills, assessments, reviews, and even as a warm-up activity.
