Color Word Bump Game

 (dj inkers clip art featured in center of game)

Here is a bump game for Color Words!

 Before playing, place the colored crayons in a brown paper bag or small box.
This game can be played in partners or groups of three.  Give each pair of students a game board, a bag of the colored crayons, and bingo chips of different colors for each student in the group.  Remember to model the game in whole group before playing with a partner.

  I like to use colored bingo chips as game markers because the students can see through the chips.  Unifix cubes work well too!  

To play the game, a student reaches in the paper bag and pulls out one crayon.  The student names the color of the chosen crayon and places his colored bingo chip on the color word.  (For beginning readers, encourage those students to check and read the color word on the side of the crayon.)  If the color word is not covered on the game board, the student places his chip on the word.  If the color word is covered with the other player's chips, he may “bump” the other student’s chip off the board.  If the color word is covered with the student's own bingo chip, he may return the crayon to the bag and pick again.  The first student to cover the board with all of his colored chips wins. Play as time allows.  Add this game to the working with words station.



  1. Thanks Michelle! Our district just eliminated color words from our sight word lists so this works perfectly!
