Use the format that works best for you and your learners!
Not all students may have access to technology at home during distance learning. That’s why the bundle includes different formats for your learners.
Printable worksheets, interactive PDFs, and Boom card options are all available for your learners. Whether you deliver learning packets to your students, share live lessons via Zoom or Google Meet online, or share interactive PDFs or Boom cards on your online learning platform, the different options will ensure every student gets something out of your instruction.
Foster independent learning!
Because the Made for Me literacy bundle now includes Boom cards, your learners can quickly self-check and correct while working independently at home.
In addition, you can also assign the digital task cards that individual students need to work on to differentiate instruction for struggling readers or those who have already mastered skills and standards. There is no need to create extension or remediation lessons for different groups. With 50 digital skill cards in each bundle, there are skills to practice for every student!
The Made for Literacy Boom cards (including interactive PDFs and printable worksheets) are perfect tools for distance learning! Try the Pre-K and Kindergarten bundles in your distance learning classroom or when you return to school!
