Bump Freebie for R-Controlled Vowels

Classroom freebies
Hi, Teaching Friends!

I'm back. No excuses. Sorry. Would a freebie help you forgive me? :)

I've been mulling over the idea of using literacy concepts in Bump games, because, hey, who doesn't love a Bump game? So, now the "mulling" has progressed to obsessing. While I'm working on the whole set and the list is growing longer and longer, I finally finished this set and posted it at TPT!Here's a little taste for you to sample.

Here's a closer look at the set of all seven games. Like the freebie above, each of the games includes a game board, cube, and student response page. You'll find CVC words, silent e words, long a words, words ending in -er, words with a final consonant/ -le syllable, words that begin with digraphs, and even (my favorite!!) a version for compound words.

This game set will serve well for Common Core practice throughout first grade, but will be especially helpful for some from-the-starting-gate easy assessment for your new second graders! Click here or on the picture to see it at my store.

I'd love to know what you think!  Please leave a comment!

    1. It's always nice to hear from you, Arlene! Thanks for the kind encouragement.

  3. This is a great game. As a new Literacy Coach and Interventionist, I am building up a bank of games and activities to help my students and teachers. I am thrilled to have discovered your site and this game. Thanks you!

    1. You're very welcome! Be sure to check out the Freebie tab at the top of the page (although I must admit I'm kind of sloppy about keeping up with it!) Much good luck to you in your new position - so exciting!

  4. This is so cute! It will be a great fun review for my daughter when we get back to school in August! :) Thanks for sharing!
