Thank Goodness for BUMP Games (and Sunny!)!

I don't have time to create anything cutsie, fun, or important. 
So instead I'm going to share what someone else is doing that is cutsie, fun, and important!

These pictures show a Bump Game that Denise at Sunny Days in Second Grade makes. She actually has several of them made for different seasons and holidays of the year. 

And here's the kicker. . . 

They. . . ARE. .  . FREE!

This particular one has the kids rolling 3 dice and counting their totals. This is a great skill for them to review since they have been away from learning school stuff since last June!

Can you see the happiness on their faces? 

I love that they snuggle in close together to play the game.

This also gives me a chance to do some assessing 
with students while they are busy playing.

If you are interested in grabbing some of these for yourself, 
you can find them at 

Not sure how your weather is where you are at, but here in south west Michigan it was HOT today. (My car said 94 degrees at 1:00.) Fortunately our school is air conditioned and we are still able to work fairly comfortably. I just can't imagine how other schools do it. Wearing jewelry makes me hot, Hot Flashes make me hot, sweaty kids wanting hugs make me hot! And we have the air on! If you are one of those schools with out air, please know that I do feel your pain. I do remember teaching in my school on these kind of days before we had a/c. 

That's all for now!
Stay cool!


  1. Thank you, thank you! I just found out that I'm having a student move into my class from another room tomorrow and I have nothing ready for the little guy! This will keep my kiddos busy so that I can get somewhat organized and then can begin my assessments! :)

Thanks for leaving me a comment after grabbing one of my ideas! It's like leaving a tip for a job well done!
