Boom Cards are engaging and fun, and this comprehension focused set for the book, Thank You Mr. Falker by Patricia Polacco, works beautifully for independent work during and after reading or as a group activity as an interactive read aloud.
Each digital task card has full audio support. Students respond (drag and drop activities) to comprehension questions, sequence the events of the story (2), identify the story elements, sort cause and effect events, and extended responses. This resource is best used AFTER reading or listening to the story. If you'd like to have your students listen to the story, the link below is to the story on Youtube. You can save it for later.
