Your students will love playing Bump to learn their teen numbers 11-18. Just spin the spinner, read the number, and cover or bump! This game should last a good amount of time since students can bump each other off - teacher win!
If you have never played Bump before, it's super simple and you probably already have all the materials you need in the classroom! For this game you will need counters and a spinner of some sort.
How to Play:
This game is intended for2-3 players. Each player will need 12 counters. Be sure to have different colored counters for each child. You will also need a spinner, like a paper clip and pencil.
After students select the order in which they will play, player 1 will spin and read the number they land on. They will cover that number with a counter.
1. If an opponent already has one counter on that number, they can bump it off.
2. If they already have one counter on that number, they can lock it with a second counter. Locked numbers can not be bumped.
3. If the number has no open spaces on the board, their turn is over.
Players take turns until someone uses all their counters. That person is the winner!
There are multiple versions of the spinners on pages 5-8 but you will only need one. Choose the one that works best for your class! I have included a chart from 1-20 on each one. This will allow students to use a number they already know as a reference point and count on to help them identify the teens.
