January Bump Math Games

January Bump Math Games | Technologies in the Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it

Bump is a math game that's been around for a while. Basically, the kids roll dice, figure the sum and cover the answer with their marker. There is a twist to the game though. The full directions are included in the download file. Both addition and multiplication versions are included. Enjoy these math games from Denise Boehm of Sunny Days!

Esther Kang's curator insight, October 28, 2013 10:48 AM

This is a similar math board game that my mentor used for a math center recently.  But it is different that it has a twist to it.  I really like how students are able to bump their friends' marker off if they land on the same space, and that there are "locked spaces" if there are two of the same markers in one space.  This will engage students even more.
