*Note* This version of Bump has a trail game around the edges where you can write your words, letters, or facts. I sell a different template product with just the inner shapes - no trail. Click here for a Bump game without a trail - just shapes
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, ELA such as word families, homonyms, and foreign languages such as Spanish vocabulary or Hebrew alphabet.
Each game board has an editable text box that says, "text". Simply click your mouse on the text box, and type your own sight or spelling words or math problems. Then, you can leave it (as is) or change your font style and size. You can also delete any of the text boxes. Last, print and laminate. It is easy peasy!
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. Games for every season and selected American holidays.

The Candy or Bubble Gum games have a generic theme that can be used for any classroom party with candy, 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, even though, I did include St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, and Halloween, too, in this product. Therefore, I included many seasonal-related themes, such as Apples and Leaves, and Winter, Gingerbread, and Penguins, along with Spring, Earth Day, and Bee 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. For those who want a matching set, you can choose to print the themed game pieces and themed spinners that match the holiday/seasonal themed game boards.
