What is Bump?
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, homophones, and foreign languages such as Spanish vocabulary or Hebrew alphabet.
How to use:
Each game board has an editable text box that says, "text". Simply click your mouse on the text box, and type your own curriculum - sight or spelling words, math problems, etc... Then, you can leave it (as is) or change your font style and size, as you can do in any Microsoft software. You can also delete any of the text boxes. Last, print and laminate. 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. It is easy peasy!

Bubble Gum Bump
The Bubble Gum, Chocolate, and Candy Bump games have a generic theme that can be used for any classroom party with candy or a birthday party theme.
Also, many of us live in a multicultural neighborhood. I included a selection of a few religious Bump games, but not all the holidays of all religions. There are many seasonal-related themes, such as Apples, Pumpkins, and Leaves, Winter, Gingerbread, and Penguins, Spring, Earth Day, and Bee Bump games, as well as a Beach and Vacation summer themed games. There are social studies and science themes such as Dental Awareness, Martin Luther King, Jr., Earth Day, Ocean, and Space (Outer Space) Bump.
All that, for ! What a terrific deal!
Do you have a low printing budget?
You don't have to reprint game pieces and spinners for each holiday/season. Just print one game board and some "regular" game pieces which I included, and one generic spinner that you can use no matter what the theme, any time throughout the year. So, you only need your printer for the actual game boards.
For those who want a matching set and have a higher printing budget, you can print each page of the themed game pieces as well as the themed spinners that match each holiday/seasonal themed game board.
