Digital Toothy ® Task Cards – an original idea from Angie Olson at Lucky Little Learners, LLC.
Digital Toothy ® Task Cards are a fun option to practice and review reading concepts using a device. Devices that are compatible with this digital resource are iPads™, Chromebooks™, laptops, and desktop computers.
Digital Toothy Task cards do work with Google Classroom and SeeSaw. They can also be shared in Canvas, Class Dojo, or simply email the link. Step by step video and printed directions are shared inside the product.
There are 27 different reading sets included in this bundle. Each reading concept includes a sentence, paragraph, or passage along with questions that focus on the skill being practiced. These digital reading task cards are self-correcting and self-paced. They provide a fun incentive to stay focused on the reading task by offering the ability to add a tooth in Toothy’s mouth for every correct answer.
BONUS: All digital reading sets include the option for the student to play the audio of the passage being read to them. This is a wonderful upgrade to the digital set and great for differentiation!!!
Digital Toothy® Task Cards are a great option for your students to use as centers, early finishers, morning work, or even Digital Learning Days!

How does the game work?
Students read a sentence, paragraph, or passage on a digital task card within every skill. For every sentence, paragraph, or passage that is read, there are questions to go with it that focus on the reading strategy being practiced. Then they choose the answer from three choices. If the answer is correct, a tooth gets placed in Toothy’s mouth. If the answer is not correct, they go back to the problem to solve again.
What kind of devices are compatible with Digital Toothy®?
Digital Toothy® works great with iPads™, laptops, desktops, and Chromebooks™. This file has two digital versions. PowerPoint™ will work on the iPad™ with the free PowerPoint app (no sign-in required). This file is also provided in the form of Google Slides™ for Google Classroom™. We have been told that this can work for Kindles™ through sharing the Google Slides™ link through SeeSaw™ but we haven’t tested this.
Can I check their answers?
We recommend using the recording sheets that are provided if you want to grade this activity. We have also included answer keys for every skill set.
Can more than one student play at the same time?
Yes! One license will provide your entire class to all play these games at the same time.
If I already own a printable Toothy® Bundle, how do I upgrade?
We will keep the cost of the digital bundle low to allow for an affordable additional product if you already own the printable version.
