Most children love playing games. And let’s face it games make learning fun, so why not take advantage to sneak in some extra practice? I love incorporating games into learning time, whether it is math or reading.

This simple Bump Game is a fun way to have children practice reading CVC words. We know that practice makes perfect when it comes to reading, so a game is the best way to make it fun.

If the kids are having fun, they will want to do the activity and that makes life so much easier.


What are CVC words?

A CVC word is made up of a consonant, vowel, and consonant sounds. In these words, all the letters are pronounced, so that children can easily sound them out. Example of CVC words are cat, tap or map.

These words are perfect for early readers. They are easy to decode and so help children to experience success in reading. Something that is almost as important as practice.

Teacher Tip: Difficulty hearing individual sounds and blending them is a symptom of Dyscaulia. Watch out for students who fall behind and continue to struggle even with extra help. Find out more here.

Kindergarten Games

To play this educational game for kindergartners you will need to give each player different colored game markers.

  • The first player rolls the cube and sounds out the word.
  • They then find the corresponding picture on the game board.
  • Place their marker on the picture
  • They can bump off the counter belonging to other players and place their own counter on the picture.
  • If a player already has a marker on the picture, they place a second one on the picture and that is now frozen. Frozen pictures cannot be bumped.
  • The game is over when all the pictures are frozen.
  • The winner is the player who freezes the most pictures.


Use a permanent marker to print the words on a cube shaped wooden block.

Make a paperclip spinner and print the words on it. You can find instructions here and a blank spinner template here (you will need spinner #3)


  • Invite children to roll a cube and write a sentence that includes that word.
  • Older children could roll 2-3 times and write a story that uses all the words.
