This Compound Words BUMP Games Pack contains 12 different BUMP games to help students practice identifying over 100 compound words. These compound words BUMP games are differentiated into six different levels so that all of your students can play the games.

Level 1 - Picture + Picture = Picture of Compound Word

Level 2 - Picture + Picture = Written Compound Word

Level 3 - Word + Word = Picture of Compound Word

Level 4 - Word + Word = Written Compound Word

Level 5 - Identify the ending word of a compound word (multiple answers possible)

Level 6 - Identify the beginning word of a compound word (multiple answers possible)

These games are so simple to use, and take a minimal amount of prep. Simply print out the game sheet, get 2 dice, 2 game pieces, and 20 counters, and you'll be ready to go!

To play, students will roll the dice and find the corresponding compound word problem. Then, they have to identify the correct compound word (or picture of that word) and cover it with their counter. Students have to get all of the counters onto the game board without getting "bumped" off by the other player.
