While younger students are getting into the swing of curriculum, older college-bound students are doing final preparations for SAT and ACT scores. Prep courses, practice tests, and flashcards are all useful tools in preparing to take a college entrance course. Boom Cards resources provide on-the-go practice (available on iOS, Android or Kindle) for students preparing for these tests.
Here are some specific resource collections to help your students prepare.
- Prime numbers
- Order of operations
- Manipulations of fractions and decimals
English Language Arts Skills
Boom Cards resources supplement traditional study aids where students need to refresh or build skills around topics like:
- Identifying words in context,
- Standard English conventions,
- Figurative language,
- Grammar concepts, and
- Understanding complex passages.
Students can practice reading comprehension skills with a book unit, such as Gay Miller’s book unit on Gary Paulsen’s “Hatchet.”
Social Studies, History, Science, and Humanities
A variety of materials is available for the student who needs to extend understanding of areas of social studies, history, science, and the humanities to have the foundations to perform expected critical analysis.
Beyond test prep courses, test prep booklets, Boom Cards supplements, flashcards and other tools, make sure students also develop habits to make studying effective: prioritizing quality sleep, regular exercise, and a distraction-free studying environment. Attention to these preconditions for success will make enable students to get better results from their preparations.
