Whether you are a preschool teacher, a stay-at-home parent, or the principal of your town’s elementary school, you probably only have one question going through your head right now: “how do I keep my learners engaged for just a few more weeks?”
This is one of the hardest stretches of the year, and making it through during a regular year is no easy feat, much less a crazy year like this one. But guess what? You’re not alone! We are dedicated to meeting the needs of our teachers and parents and making things just a little bit easier for you. This is why we put this bundle together just for you!
Christmas Detective Math & Literacy Boom Card Bundle
If you don’t already use Boom Cards in your classroom, you’re going to want to start! With self-correcting features, these cards make for a great independent center where learners can strengthen their math and literacy skills.
Our Christmas Detective Bundle will have your students working on:
- Number recognition from 0 – 20
- Letter recognition for both upper and lowercase letters
- Comparison of quantities to determine which group has more
With Detective Santa and Detective Reindeer helping on each card, your learner will help them discover the correct answer by selecting the correct number, letter, or item.
Each card has a sound icon found at the top of each card which allows your pre-readers to listen to the instructions. This feature is perfect for enhancing listening comprehension, as well as encouraging independence.
There are five decks included in the bundle, each targeting different skills.
- Detective Santa Number Recognition (Numbers 0-10)
- Detective Santa Number Recognition (Numbers 11-20)
- Detective Reindeer Uppercase Letter Recognition
- Detective Reindeer Lowercase Letter Recognition
- Detective Reindeer – Which has more? (Number comparison)
In order to use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the internet and can be used on modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Also check out the app that’s available for Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires! For further instructions on how to distribute to your students, please check here.
Skills Covered in Boom Card Christmas Detective Bundle
Not only are these interactive Boom Cards engaging and fun for students, but they build up foundational skills. Along with number and letter recognition, these cards also help with:
- Listening comprehension
- Visual Discrimination
- One-to-One correspondence
- Greater/Less Than
Within each deck, your students will help detectives Santa and Rudolph find the correct letters and numbers by clicking on the correct Christmas items.
Once they move on to comparing quantities, there’s a deck for that too!
In that particular deck, your students will be tasked with counting the ornaments found on two different Christmas trees to determine which symbol (greater than, less than, or equal to) applies.
These are all great skills that are strengthened with the use of our Christmas Detective Boom Card Bundle!
