I have 18 Candy Land Games available & wanted to offer this one for free to try it out in your classroom. This game includes 57 different contraction words on look-alike Candy Land cards. Have your students say the contraction on the card in order to move. To challenge them they can say the contraction and the full words that make up the contraction. You just need a game board & game pieces. Print out cards on card stock, laminate, cut & use for years to come! My kids LOVE this game! This can be used in a Work Work station in Daily 5 or as a literacy station. This can be used for your at risk, on-level, or advanced students depending on your grade level. This can be used in an RTI group or larger group depending on how many game boards you have. Print as many games as you want for one class only though. I will be making this game for dolch pre-primer & primer sight words, compounds, blends, dipthongs, nonsense, Fry's first 100, 200 & 300 words, addition & subtraction games! So get all those Candy Land boards & game pieces from your family & friends & let your students have a blast learning their long vowels with a familiar game board!

What a great way to review contractions! Your "Candy Land Contraction Game (FREE)" was the featured "Free Lesson of the Day" on "The Best of Teachers Pay Teachers."
Hope you are having a great school year,

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
I was wondering if you could make a candyland game for me with our sight words? I have struggling to find fun games that keep their attention to help them with their sight words. I have bought a couple of your other candyland games and the kiddos LOVE them! I have no idea if this would be something you are interested in or not, but I am willing to pay whatever for a game personalized to our first grade words! Thank you so much!
I am wondering why you mixed upper and lower case letters in the spelling of the words. I try so hard for my second graders to only capitalize the letters that are suppose to be capitalized. I love your ideas and the colorful format but would like to see everything in lower case.
Hi Mel, I enjoyed your product. I was able to confidently give it a perfect rating. Thanks for sharing!
I just listed a new type of Sight Word PowerPoint for Kindergarten and First Grade. It is listed under First 50 Sight Words PowerPoint. It includes the words in isolation and within the context of sentences with picture support. I wondered if you might consider taking a look at the free 4 slide preview to see if it might be something you could use. Thanks! Anne Gardner

I love your idea of using Candy Land to practice various skills. I work hard to break my students' habit of using capital letters in inappropriate places. I think the font you used is adorable but would prefer a font all in lowercase letters. Is there a way I could get these cards in a different font?
Thank you so much,
