Sight Word Candy Land

I don’t know about your kids – but mine are obsessed with Candy Land. I, however, am not a huge fan of the never ending game. But, I love my boys and spending time playing a game as a whole family is something I really value. Family games are one of my best childhood memories!

Enter my idea to change up Candy Land into something a little more challenging: Sight Word Candy Land! And, it was indeed a hit with Micah – he loves showing off his reading skills. Thing 2 is a little young yet, but he did know some of the words. Because it is Candy Land younger kids who aren’t learning sight words of reading can still use the colors to move their game piece.

You can now get all 5 Dolch List Deck Sets in one handy download for just $1.99! There are also some blank cards included in each set so you can add other words your kids are learning. Your purchase helps me keep this sight up and continue to offer free printables, so thank you so very much for your support.

NOTE: This was previously my most-downloaded subscriber freebie for the past couple years. In an effort to find a way to support this growing website, I made a hard decision to make my Candy Land Cards a purchasable download. I realize this might anger some people, following a free link form Pinterest or wherever, but I hope as homeschooling moms and public school teachers (and maybe as bloggers yourselves) you understand my need make this webspace self-sustaining. Thank you!

But wait – there’s more {to come}! Check back with me next week for Addition & Subtraction Fact Candy Land Cards. Micah is cruising along in MUS Alpha and Addition Candy Land Cards would really help him commit those math facts to memory!

And….because, I have to keep you interested, right? :-) I’ll even whip up some multiplication facts cards too for those who have older kids (cause we’ll need them in a year or two ourselves).

  19. Micha says:

    This made my day,week and year!!!!! I love this! I will be teaching 2nd grade this year and my classroom theme is Candyland. I have been searching for decorations for my room and happened to find this. I was wanting to use the game in my room for something educational and this will be perfect! I was wondering if you have completed the other sets (multiplication, addition, subtraction, or the blank sets) ? How do you play the game with the sight words? Thanks in advance!

    • becca says:

      Addition and subtraction are done, they are here. I am working on the others.

      For the sight words, have the kids read the word(s) to move to the colors on the cards.

      I’m so glad you can use them!
