Bumpville is a simple but exciting game which gives young children practice using a number line to add and subtract, and helps them build fluency for facts within 10 (Common Core State Standards 1.OA.C5 and 1.OA.C6). Each of the four colorful game boards provides practice with a different strategy (see below), and includes a 0-to-10 number line. As players travel around the game board, they must correctly solve the facts they land on. But, watch out! If a player lands on an occupied space, he/she bumps the other player back to the nearest corner! The first player to travel all the way around the board and get back to "GO" is the winner!
Bumpville is a great choice for math centers, small-group work, or a free choice activity. No matter how you use Bumpville, your students will have fun building math skills!
The set includes four full-color, easy to assemble Bumpville game boards, each of which provides practice for a different computation strategy. Teach the strategy, then provide extra practice using the appropriate game board:
• Board #1: Subtraction Facts (Strategy: Counting back 1, 2, or 3)
• Board #2: Subtraction Facts (Strategy: Counting up)
• Board #3: Addition Facts (Strategy: Counting on)
• Board #4: Addition Facts (Strategies: Counting on, using doubles, and doubles +1)
Also included is a set of "Luck" cards. Kids love drawing these cards, which direct them to one of many picture spaces on the board.
Complete game directions can be found in the preview. You can also "zoom in" to get a closer look at the game boards.
It takes lots of practice to acquire fluency with math facts. That's why games are so great--children love the fun, and I love all the practice they're getting!
