Teen Numbers Boom Cards


These Boom Cards help kids learn about the teen numbers using base ten blocks. It’s a fun way to introduce the early place value concept of tens and ones.

Initially, I love using hands-on materials such as connecting cubes to introduce teen numbers. I usually get the kids to make one “ten” by connecting the cubes, before introducing base ten blocks. I do this because the base ten block “ten” is joined so it can easily be confused as a “one” when kids starting out. To play the following game, kids will need to have a basic understanding of a “ten” and a “one”.

The new trend towards distance learning has led me to get out of my comfort zone by learning how to create digital resources, and I’m so glad that I have! If you’re new to Boom Cards like me, they are essentially digital task cards which can be used on devices such as tablets and computers. The awesome thing about them is they are interactive and self-correcting.

How to Play – First kids can press the speaker icon to listen to the game instructions. Then they need to count the base ten blocks, which are shown in tens and ones. After that the kids need to find the pineapple with the correct teen number and drag it to the box. Once kids have submitted their answer they’ll be prompted to move to the next card if they got it correct or to try again if they picked the incorrect answer.
