Addition Bump and Addition Cover Up Games
Bring play into your classroom while teaching essential standards.
Teach your students how to play Bump and Cover Up once and they will be ready to play all these games independently.
The set lends to differentiation. Students can play the games for the addition facts they need to practice.
Each of the following games comes in color and black and white
. I print the color versions and laminate to keep in the classroom. The black and white versions can be used in class or sent home for fun number practice. There are 24 different game boards. Each level has two games: one bump and one cover up
Roll 2. Add.
The games can be played with six sided dice or the number cards included. Some students don't have dice at home so I'll provide number cards for them to use.
What is Cover Up?
Students roll a six sided dice or draw a number card. Then they add the given number to the card and cover up the answer. The first player with five and a row wins.
I enjoy playing this with students because I like to see them strategizing by choosing which answer is best to cover to help themselves win and prevent their partner from winning. Besides memorizing facts, using strategies helps their problem solving skills.
