This activity is a fun way to practice beginning sounds! There are two cards for each letter of the alphabet. These digital task cards are perfect for reading centers, whole group, summer review and homeschooling. Cards are randomized so that each time the students interact, the cards are presented in a different order.
This digital and interactive resource can be used with Boom Learning. Upon purchase, you will receive a PDF with directions and a link to redeem the Boom Cards.

Assign Boom Cards from your Google Classroom
To use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the Internet. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Apps are available for Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires. For security and privacy, adults must have a Boom Learning account to use and assign Boom Cards. You will be able to assign the Boom Cards you are buying with “Fast Pins,” (play provides instant feedback for self-grading Boom Cards). Fast Play is always a free way for students to engage with Boom Cards decks. For additional assignment options you’ll need a premium account. If you are new to Boom Learning, you will be offered a free trial of our premium account. Read here for details: http://bit.ly/BoomTrial.
Why do I have to set up an account with Boom?
To use Boom Cards, you must open at least a FREE Boom Learning account (just like you have to have a Google account to use Google resources). Free accounts include the ability to generate student progress reports for 5 students and to make up to 5 DIY decks. Free accounts also allow you to assign Boom Cards to unlimited students (without progress reports) using the Fast Play pin option available in the Library.
Cards Per Play
In the Library view, you can set Custom Play options for each deck.
- If you uncheck “Allow multiple plays?”, the student will be served every card in the deck on their subsequent plays.
- If you want to have students play a subset of cards per play, make sure Allow multiple plays is selected and click on “Number of cards per play” to change the maximum quantity.
- The circle in the student dashboard and teacher reports will remain red until the student has played the deck enough times to see every card in the deck.
- In many cases, students will need to play the deck, two or more times to play every card. Our algorithm is designed to serve new cards the student has never seen first. After all cards have been served once, it begins to shuffle in previously played cards.
