Hiding or Changing the Total Number of Boom Cards

I think you know by now that I am a big fan of Boom Cards. Today I wanted to share two tips for teachers.

Tip #1 You can change the total number of cards your students play.

Sometimes the deck has more cards than you want the student to play in one sitting. 


Tip #2 You can hide specific cards.

Perhaps the deck has a few cards that include a skill you have taught yet or are a bit too difficult.


Here is quick video to show you how!

Coins Bundles of Boom Cards & Google Slides

Do your students need to practice the prerequisite skills needed for counting money in CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.C.8?

I made 4 spring puzzle reveal money decks, in increasing difficulty, for Boom cards and Google Slides.

The Identify Coins & Values deck shows the front of back of each coin and the student needs to click on the correct name of the coin. The second half of the deck asks the student to identify the value of each coin. 

Students will recognize the penny, nickel, dime, quarter, and half dollar since I have used realistic images. Each time the student clicks the correct answer, a piece of the spring puzzle is revealed. 

Counting Coins: Pennies, Nickels & Dimes asks students to count the coins and click on the correct total. Each correct answer earns a piece of the spring puzzle.

Counting 
Coins: Pennies, Nickels, Dimes & Quarters increases the difficulty a bit.


And finally, Counting Coins: Pennies, Nickels, Dimes, Quarters & Half Dollars.

Retail Therapy!

 Did you hear that TpT is holding a site-wide sale April 6th & 7th?


 My entire store will be 20% off and if you use the code FORYOU21 you will get an additional 5% off!

Do you pre-shop? I habitually add things to my wishlist when I see something interesting so I will go through there an add things to my cart. Also, I visit my favorite shops to look at bundles since those are by far the best deal. 25% off an already discounted product? Yes please! While I am visiting, I make sure to grab all the freebies I can, don't you? 

I have a few bundles you may be interested in. Many teachers tell me book studies have been helpful during this pandemic year. If you'd like to try before you buy, I have a  FREE Chalk Box Book Study.




And of course digital centers have been great during distance learning. Has your school banned traditional centers due to sharing all the manipulatives? If you have access to digital devices, wiping down an iPad is quite quick.


I have a FREE Boom Card Vowel Digraph OO Sort you might like.



I also find sale days the perfect time to buy a more expensive item so it doesn't feel like as much of a splurge. 

At this time of year, I am already starting to think of next year so I sometimes buy with that in mind.
This product is one of my labors of love that made a tremendous impact for my students. I can't say enough about how valuable I think DAILY practice is to building skill and confidence. 


I have a FREE week of these available if you want to give them a try first.

I have many more FREEBIES so it might be worth a visit to my store


I hope you find something that will make your last couple months of this crazy year a little easier.
