These cards were created to work on basic categories in three different formats (two expressive and one receptive).  I provided a quick categories review to use with students if needed. The main purpose of this deck was to provide practice but you can use them to teach the concepts too. The picture stimuli are real photos that children can relate to. Print and Digital options (Digital options on BOOM cards) 

This purchase includes: 

  • 37 Name the Category Cards: These cards have an image of multiple items and the students are prompted to name the category. There is a carrier phrase at the bottom that you can use to help elicit the category (“They are all _____”). I also included a hidden clue in the digital version to use if the child is having difficulty naming the category (optional). The student will slide the box down to reveal the clue. If you are using the printed card, you can provide a verbal cue as needed. I have included 20 main categories and subcategories for food, animals, and clothing. The purpose of these cards is for the student to respond orally (there is no self checking element or multiple choice option in the digital version). 
  • 25 Name 3 items in a Category: These cards have three checkmarks for the students tap as they name three items in the category prompted. There is a hidden clue to help the student if they need help getting started (there is picture of one of the items to help them get started naming in the digital version). The student will slide the box down to reveal the clue. The purpose of this card is for the student to respond orally, there is an interactive element of tapping the checkmarks as you name the items in the digital version.  If you are using the printed version, they can tap the boxes or use a dry erase marker to check the boxes as they go. 
  • 16 Tap the Category: There is a grid of 12 pictures and the student is asked to tap all of the items in the given category. In the digital version,  the student will click “submit" to see if they selected the correct pictures. This is a receptive task (unlike the other two tasks that are expressive). In the printed version they can tap the pictures with their finger or circle them with a dry erase marker. 

BOOM CARD Instructions: Follow the instructions on the top of each card. I included audio for all instructions, prompts, and clues on the cards (the student can tap the speaker button when needed). 

Printed version instructions: The student can use a dry erase marker to circle the answer or simply point to it. The therapist, teacher, or student can read the instructions/prompts if needed. I recommend printing and laminating for continued use! The printable version includes all of the cards from the BOOM deck in a printable format. 

This purchase is for printable cards (full page size cards and 1/2 size page cards) + a link for the digital BOOM Cards.
