WORD WORK WITH BOOM CARDS
Word Work with Boom Cards is the perfect way for your kindergarten, first grade and second grade students to practice word building skills. So… I’m here to talk about Boom Cards AGAIN! I know… but after we were all thrown into distance learning without much, if any, HEADS UP – I think this is the perfect time to talk about my NEW FAVORITE Boom Bundle!
So this one is called Guess The Word (It’s a play off of my Early Finisher Guess That Word – you can check that blog post out here!)
HOW IT WORKS
So, with these self-checking, interactive, Boom Cards – students will be given a picture of a word, along with the letters to build that word. BUT, they are mixed up. Students will have to drag the letters to the correct box to build the word. If they drag them all correctly, they can move on to the next slide, but if they don’t place the letters in the correct boxes, the ones they missed get dropped back down and they have to try again.
WORD WORK ACTIVITIES
Why is this such a good skill? I believe that we have to give our students as many opportunities as possible with sounds and words. The more fun we make the task, the better readers, writers, and spellers we will create. This is not the one all be all, but this is one of the ways we can help students start to understand the beginning, middle, end of sounds with our CVC words, to blending with our beginning and ending blends, as well as other phonetic opportunities.
CVC WORD PRACTICE
With these CVC word practice, students will be able to blend the letter sounds together to create words. This set is perfect for your kindergarten students who are learning their sounds, as well as first grade students who might still need help with building words.
I have these broken up into the different vowel sounds so that students can practice with each set and master not only the vowel sounds, but consonant sounds as well.
BLENDS, DIGRAPHS, CONTROLLED VOWELS OH MY!
Once your kiddos have mastered the CVC word practice, you can move into the more in depth decks. As your students start to learn that ch says /ch/ and dge says /ge/, they can begin building all kinds of words that will help them become better readers and writers.
I have tons of decks for students to practice:
- Double consonant words
- Long Vowel Words
- R Controlled Vowels
- L Blends (beginning)
- L Blends (Ending)
- LE Syllables
- S Blends
- CVCC words
- Magic E words
- R Blends
I am still adding to this set – so if you have ideas, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me! I’d love to hear from you.
