by Teach2Tell
Kindergarten - 4th Grade

⭐ In this fun set of 25 digital Boom Cards, students will identify each animal’s unique footprint from a choice of three. Students will drag the correct footprint and drop it on each animal.


✅ Card 1 provides students with a brief overview of the task.

✅ In Cards 2-24, students identify each animal’s footprint.

✅ Card 25 signifies the end of the activity.



⚫ You will find a link to the digital Boom Cards in a pdf file on download. By clicking on the link, you will be directed to the Boom Learning website.

⚫ Set up an account with Boom Learning (if you are new to the site) to add this resource to your library.

⚫ You may set up a classroom to assign these cards to your students or generate a ‘Fast Pin’ or a ‘Hyperplay’ link to share via your online learning platform similar to Google Classroom and the like.



✅ Boom Cards are interactive digital task cards that can be used on Smartboards, computers, tablets, or any other mobile devices.

✅ Boom Cards are self-grading and provide both teacher and student with an instant evaluation of student progress.

✅ Boom Cards are paperless and hence require no preparation in terms of printing, cutting, laminating, or physical storage.

✅ Boom Cards set students up for success by requiring them to correct incorrect responses and re-submit them.

✅ The use of Boom Cards in the classroom is an effective way to integrate technology with interdisciplinary areas of learning.

✅ Boom Cards are versatile and can be accessible any time students have internet access and their mobile devices.

✅ Boom Cards promote independent learning. This is useful for students who are absent or during substitute teaching.

✅ Boom Cards are a form of subtle learning. Students have fun while assimilating conceptual information.

FREE MATH LESSON - “Count the Colors Animal Theme”

by RoShamBo Homeschooling
Pre-Kindergarten - 1st Grade

This FREE printable helps kiddos practice counting objects AND learn colors using cute animals! This is great for learning counting and one-to-one correspondence, as well as practicing fine motor control and handwriting. If your child isn’t quite ready to write numbers on their own, feel free to write the numbers for them after they do the counting. This still will help with mastering number recognition!

Sometimes activities like this are tricky for littles because the items are mixed up instead of in an orderly pattern. But counting in every context is important to learn! To help your kids clear away some of the chaos, I like to use plastic counters to cover the animals they’ve already counted, or for kids just starting out, cover all the animals except the blue ones at first, then all the animals except the red ones, and so on. It will still give them practice counting with a disorderly pattern, but you can start with the easiest stage and work your way up!

Please let me know if you have any questions prior to purchasing.
