Snacking on Sums is an engaging game for students to practice their addition fluency through either 5 or 10. Game boards and cards are included for both,m so you can differentiate as necessary for your diverse learners.
Here's a snapshot of the supplies and rules for Bump:
Connecting Cubes– 10 of the same color per player
Place board where all players can read the numbers.
Place game cards face down in a pile.
Players take turns drawing a card and adding the two digits together., placing their counter on the sum on the game board.
If a different player draws a card that equals the same sum that player “bumps” the initial player’s connecting cube off the number and places their cube on it instead.
If a player draws a card that uses the same sum as one they have already claimed with their color of counter, they may stack another counter on top of the first one. This double stack makes them “safe” from being bumped by other players.
When players run out of cards they should shuffle and keep playing, as more ‘bumps” will occur the second time through the cards.
The game ends when the teacher calls time or when a player runs out of counters. The winner is the player with the most counters on the board.
Note: to play addition to 5, copy the cards directly after that game board. To play addition to 10, copy all cards in the file (The ones that go with adding to 5 and the ones that follow the adding to 10 bump game board as well.) I usually make a double set of the cards for each game board as this helps more “bumps” occur more quickly.
