Bump! games have remained the favorite of my kids since I introduced them a little over a year ago. As life has gotten in the way, I realized we hadn’t been playing as many learning games as usual, so I set out to make these super fun printable digraph Bump! games as a way of reviewing digraphs with my 1st grader. We used them for review, but they would also be perfect for introducing digraphs to your kindergarteners!
Materials needed for the Printable Digraph Bump! Games:
Digraph Bump! download (found at the end of this post)
8 File Folders
8 brads (paper fasteners)
8 paper clips
Game markers in two colors for playing (20 markers per player)
While all the details are added for file folder games, it is NOT necessary to use them in that format. To use them without the file folder simple print on card stock and/or laminate for durability and store in your usual manner.
How to play:
-Spin the spinner.
-Put a place marker on the matching picture.
-If the other player has a place marker on that picture you can “Bump” them off and put your marker on.
-If you already have a place marker on that picture, you can place a second place marker on top to freeze the number. Frozen pictures cannot be “Bumped”.
-The game ends when all the pictures have been frozen.
-The winner is the player with the most pictures frozen.
I have included 8 unique games covering 5 digraphs: ch-, sh-, ph-, th-, and wh-. 5 games cover each individual digraph and 3 games cover all the digraphs together.

sh- words: pages 4, 5, 10-12
th- words: pages 4, 6, 13-15
wh- words: pages 4, 6, 16-18
ph- words: pages 19, 20, 22-24
Set 1: pages 19, 20, 25-27
