Inside: an apple beginning sounds digital activity for kindergarten or preschool students
I was too far in over my head last spring to create any amazing new distance learning activities for you. We were all thrown topsy turvy, weren’t we…
Now that it looks like some of us may still be teaching remotely this fall, I went ahead and jumped into some fun new digital task cards for my store.
Apple Beginning Sounds Activity
Do you have an apple theme planned for fall?
Your kiddos are going to love these!
Each apple shown on the apple tree has a clickable audio button next to it so that students can listen to each word.
Then, they “pick” the apple with the given initial sound and drag it to the basket.
These cards are hosted on the Boom Learning℠ platform, and they are easy to assign with Google Classroom™ or with Seesaw.
Boom Cards™ are fun digital task cards that students can work on at school or on a connected device at home. They are self-checking, so students will get instant feedback about whether their response was correct or not.
There are two slides for each letter of the alphabet, so your little learners will have plenty to do.
Here’s a great video I found that shows you how different kinds of Boom Cards work:
These are SO engaging for kids, and you won’t have to sweat over the laminating machine to make a paper version – hooray!

Because kids need to associate auditory sounds with visual letters, being able to play the name of the letter sound picture is a game changer! (Plus, then there’s no confusion about what each picture represents.)
In normal times I’ve avoided on-screen activities. You’ll see that just about everything here is hands on and screen free.
But desperate times call for desperate measures.
And you know what? There’s a HUGE advantage to going digital for teaching letter sounds.
Yes, kids still need fine motor activities too. This apple tree craft would be a fun one to try. But don’t overlook the power of digital activities thrown into the mix.
