Categories speech therapy activities with Boom Cards!

Number of pages: 102


Practice categorization and sorting skills with interactive, no print Boom Cards! This activity is the perfect addition to your speech therapy sessions.

These digital, self-grading task cards are a thorough, well-planned way to build categorization skills. There are five different ways to work on categories and sorting, and these differentiated levels make it easy to scaffold and build upon skills.

Categories are a foundation for how we learn, relate, store, and recall words. Categorization is important in language because it allows us to group our thoughts, process information, store and retrieve ideas, and describe items!

Target category concepts with these interactive, self-grading cards for teletherapy, at-home learning, or in-person therapy sessions. Perfect for teaching these concepts in repetitive, consistent activities that keep kids engaged. Designed specifically to target these foundational categorization skills!


A home page with 5 sections:
Each section has 20 questions for a total of 100 questions.
Includes multiple-choice, fill-in-the-blank, and drag-and-drop features.

Strategies used to target categorization skills in this resource:

  • CONVERGENT NAMING: Choose the correct category out of a field of 3 when given pictures.
  • DIVERGENT NAMING: List 3 items in a given category.
  • WHAT DOESN’T BELONG: Find the picture that doesn’t belong in a field of 4 and discuss why. Find the word that doesn’t belong in a field of 4 and discuss why.
