This game includes Fry's 1st 100 sight words on look-alike Candy Land cards. 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. 30+ Candy Land games: Dolch pre-primer,primer,first,second & third grade sight words,contractions, compounds, blends,digraphs, diphthongs, nonsense, Fry's first 100, 200 & 300 words, addition & subtraction games + many more! So get all those Candy Land boards & game pieces from your family & friends & let your students have a blast learning sight word phrases with a familiar game board!

Great idea to use Candyland boards! I just wish the background colors were a bit paler...some of the words are difficult to read. But a fun game nonetheless!
I love your Candy Land games! Do you have a blank template for the Candy Land game that I could plug my own words into? Thank you!

I love your idea of using the game Candy Land and was all set to purchase as a great game for our reading support students during this busy season. However, as I viewed your samples, I was struck by the font you chose. It utilized a combination of upper and lower case within the word. Students will never see a word such as "tHe". We struggle with our students mis-reading those small words often enough. Is there a possibility of changing the font?
Thanks! That is something I would consider. My students do not have a problem at all. I do these games weekly & I have never had a student say anything about the font nor bring it to my attention. A teacher would notice but not a student. Everything you read is in a different font & they should not have trouble. If they were writing the words I wouldn't have used this font. The newer games I make I used a different font but it's just really time consuming to change each individual font.
