BUMP is a very fun game for pairs or small groups of children to play. Many teachers use BUMP as a math game. However, I envision BUMP to be used across the curriculum. For younger students, BUMP can be used for identifying alphabet letters, numbers, color words. For older students, BUMP can be used for multiplication and other math, homonyms and other English language arts (ELA), and foreign languages such as Spanish vocabulary or Hebrew alphabet.
You might like to keep the games in a file folder in a center or use for small groups. 2-3 players per game board. Includes game boards, spinners, dice, game pieces, and instructions for both teachers/parents and students for every season and most holidays. The best part is that you have no flashcards or game cards to cut, which means there is almost nothing for students to lose.
Customize the games for math, phonics, alphabet, sight words, foreign languages, special education (resource) needs.

The Candy or Bubble Gum games have a generic theme that can be used for any classroom party with candy like Halloween, or a birthday party theme. Also, since many of us live in a multicultural neighborhood, I thought it best to avoid a specific religious theme such as Christmas and Easter unless I were to also include all Jewish, Muslim, and other religious holidays. However, I did include St. Patrick's Day and Valentine's Day. I think a multicultural mix of students would feel more comfortable using a seasonal theme rather than a Christian holiday theme. My themes for seasons are Apple, Falling Leaves, and Fall Bump for autumn, Winter, Gingerbread, and Penguins, for winter, and Spring Bump, Earth Day, and Bee Bump for spring, and one Summer Bump game, are included with all the holiday Bump Games.
For anyone on a printing budget, you don't have to reprint game pieces and spinners for each holiday/season. I included some "regular" game pieces and a generic spinner that can be used over and over with each themed board throughout the year. But, you can also choose to print the themed game pieces and themed spinner that match the holiday/theme game boards with adorable clip art.
