The game Bump is usually played as a math game, where you match the sum, product, or numbers to the game board. Players take turns trying to get rid of all of their markers. If another player's marker is already on that spot, you can "bump" it back to the player. If someone lands on that spot twice in a row, they can secure it with two markers, and no other player will be able to take the spot. More detailed directions are in this video below:
Use Bump to Teach Math AND Reading
Did you know Bump can be easily modified to teach other content areas too? All you need is a dice or Blank Spinner and Blank Bump Game Board. Here are some examples:
Fun for ALL Ages
What I love about this game is that it is easily modifiable for different ages to play AT THE SAME TIME. In my video example, you see how my 2 year old identifies letter sound while my 6 year old says a word that starts with the sound. For numbers, the younger child can match numbers while the other child solve equations. Print out this FREE blank template to personalize the game for your own children!
Hello and Welcome!
My name is Erin, and I started this blog to share resources and insights with other fellow parents. My teaching background is injected into most things I do with my 2 kids, "Jie Jie" and "Didi" (older sister and little brother in Chinese). I'm hoping to find some work-life balance as I juggle my roles of mommy, wifey, friend, and budding entrepreneur. Thank you for joining me on this journey!
