Custom Sight Words


The Boom! Card Creator creates a fully customizable set of Sight Words Boom! playing cards. You can use one (or more) sight words lists (Dolch, Fry, Top 150) and/or use your own custom words. To create your Boom! cards:
  1. Under Dolch Sight Words or Fry Sight Words or Top 150 Written Words, check the boxes corresponding to any sight words lists you want included in your Boom! card deck. For example, selecting the Dolch Sight Words 3rd Grade and 2nd Grade lists uses those words for your Boom! cards.
  2. Under Custom Sight Words, enter in any custom words you want added to the Boom! cards. For example, if you are doing a section on insects, you might want to add ant, beetle, and butterfly.
  3. Click Create Boom! Cards, and a PDF will be generated containing your custom cards. You can print the cards by selecting print from your browser window.

    I love this site. Is there anyway to change the font for the words in the games?

    ADMIN – Hi Dawn,

    Unfortunately, we don’t have any functionality to change fonts. The font used was designed to be good for young readers – particularly those with learning disabilities.

    This is an amazing and fun way to teach. Despite other ways I found in a blog, it is mostly better till now. The new words and phrases are difficult to learn.
