Interested in going paperless? Whether you need computer-based work for distance learning, are in a 1:1 classroom, or just want to save paper, there are some great options out for paperless learning. My favorite paperless activity is French Boom Cards.
What are Boom Cards?
Boom Cards are paperless, digital task cards that can be played on devices with modern browsers.
What’s so great about them?
They are entirely self-checking, so students get immediate feedback.
With an upgraded membership on the Boom Learning℠ platform, teachers can get reports. This means you can collect grades right there for work students do at home. It’s also amazing for informing your instruction, because you can see which questions students are struggling with. There is also always a free Fast Play option to play the French Boom Cards that you have purchased without the reporting feature.
They can be used on a variety of devices, so kids can play them if they have internet connection.
Kids who hate to write (like my little one) often like this much better than paper-pencil tasks.
They are fun!
What kinds of French Boom Cards do I make?
I have made tons of Boom Cards for French beginners to practice vocabulary, verb conjugation, and basic grammar. This is perfect for students who are just learning all the basics. I’ve bundled them up to offer a huge savings to teachers.
I’ve also got a beginner bundle that has audio for students to hear as they practice new vocabulary words. This is great, because they can hear the words spoken over and over by a native speaker, helping them practice listening skills even when they are on their own.
My beginner bundle set #2 has fun practice for beginning French students who have some of the basics down. With concepts like direct and indirect objects and the passé composé plus useful vocabulary cards, this bundle is ideal for students who have completed at least one year of French. I’ve been making additions to this bundle, and I’ll continue to add to it as I make new resources that are appropriate for this level.
My intermediate bundle has topics for students who have completed at least 2 years of French. With concepts like the passé composé versus the imparfait, multi-tense verb reviews, and practice for concepts like the conditionnel, the futur simple, and the subjonctif, this can also be a great review for more advanced classes.
Where can you buy them?
Boom Cards are available at the Boom Learning platform. There are many cards out there for all subjects, including French. 😊
