Digital Task Cards for Maths (5 Deck Set)
Pre-K, Preschool, Kindergarten & Reception
There are five decks of Boom Cards in this set which all help children learn about early addition through number bonds. These cards are appropriate for kids ages 3+ and are in order of difficulty, with the easiest being number one and the most difficult being number 5.
If you're not sure what number bonds are or why they are so important for kids Maths, check out this article I wrote explaining how kids learn number bonds and how they use them starting at the age of three years old.

How to Use these Boom Cards
There are five decks in this bundle. Each deck contains between 8 and 15 cards and there are 56 cards all together in the bundle. The decks are numbered to show which order to complete them in. Younger children might need more support with the trickier cards (decks 3, 4 and 5) whereas kindergarteners and kids around 5 years old might be more capable of using any of the cards independently - especially if they are able to recognise numbers 1-10 well.
1. Digital Icons for Initial Number Bonds Practise
This first set is open-ended. This means that there is no right or wrong answer. Kids should make two groups of icons by dragging them up into the pink squares. Next kids can practise counting how many are in each group. Finally, kids can find out how many there are altogether (across the two groups) by counting them.
2. Making 10 with Ten Frames
Kids complete the ten frames by dragging icons from the bottom into the empty squares. Next kids can begin to practise saying how many they had at the beginning, how many they added and how many they have altogether (always 10 on this deck). For example: “First there were five, then I put in five more and now there are ten”. The cards will self-check when kids press submit and show any spaces that have been left empty.
3. Number Bonds to 5 & 10 - Drag and Drop Missing Number
For this deck, kids will need to be able to recognise numbers 1-10. Kids drag the number that completes the number bond into the empty circle and then press submit. For example, 3 and 2 make 5.
4. Type Missing Number - Number Bonds to 5 and 10
Kids need to be good at recognising numbers 1-10 for this deck. Kids type in the correct number that will complete the number bond and then press submit. For example, 3 and 2 make 5.
5. Make Ten & Fill in Number Sentence to 10
For this deck, kids should be somewhat familiar with number sentences and know what the + and = signs mean. There are two parts to each card in this deck. First kids drag the icons from the bottom up to the ten frame to fill in each empty space. Secondly, kids type in the correct number to show how many more icons they added in the first step. Note: In some cards, the missing number is the number of icons that were already in the ten frame, not the number of icons they added.
