Using BOOM Cards at Home

SHARE THIS POST

I wrote all about the basics of BOOM Learning in this blog post. Today, I will be sharing how you can use BOOM Cards at home! COVID-19 has changed so many things! At home/distance learning is one of them. BOOM Cards are another tool you can use to keep you students/child learning and engaged. The best thing about BOOM Cards is that they are perfect for Pre-K – 12. I use them often with my preschooler.

I’ll be linking to some other great technology tutorial posts, so make sure to stick around until the end.

BOOM Cards App

BOOM Cards can be done from any device connected to the internet. When using the digital task cards it is best to think about your child/student. I know that for younger kids it can be harder to use the mouse. With my son, I downloaded the BOOM Cards app so he could play the decks directly on my iPad. To download the BOOM app follow the steps below.

Go to the app store on your chosen device. Enter “BOOM Cards” into the search box and hit enter.

Click on the app titled BOOM Cards and download it.

I already have the app downloaded. If you do not have it on your device you will click download where it says “Open.”

Voila! The app is now on your device! Please note, you will need to create an account to use BOOM Cards (See this post to learn more).

How to use BOOM?

BOOM Decks are self grading. Your child/student should be able to complete them on their own. Immediate feedback is given.

This is an example of an incorrect answer.

If the student chooses the correct answer the card switches to the next. Likewise, If the student chooses the incorrect answer the child must figure out the correct answer in order to advance. However, children can skip a card and come back to it at the end.

Once you click on the app you will be taken to something that looks like the page below.

This is what the home screen on the app looks like.

From the home screen you can click on library in the bottom menu bar. Here you will see all of the BOOM Decks you have.

Go to the deck you want your child/student to play. Click the blue action button and choose the option you would like to use to assign the deck.

If you are using the free BOOM account you will have the option to play decks using “Fastplay.” This is a great option for practice and reinforcement.
