Why Print Boom Cards?
I love Boom Cards because of all of the neat things they can do but once you print them, you sometimes lose some of that neat functionality. So why would you ever print Boom Cards? Let’s look at some scenarios:
- turn them into printable task cards for your students
- use them for a quick warm up activity
- hang them around the room and have them choose 5 (or 10, or 15..your call!)
- give each student a few cards to answer as an exit slip
- turn it into a worksheet for student review
- no tech option in case a student loses technology priviledges
How to Print Boom Cards
It’s very simple to print a set of Boom Cards. Go to your Library on Boom Learning, click Action and select Print. Then just choose your formatting, click print and follow the instructions on your device!
Don’t forget to double-check that you’ve tweaked instructions on your printed versions and removed any cards that simply cannot be tweaked for the printable version (like any listening dependent cards!).
