I read about a way to transform the game of Candy Land into a sight word review and practice game on the First Grader at Last blog. We have a set of sight words that we use for each story with the Reading Street reading program designed by Scott Foresman. So...I decided to create some "Candy Land" cards for the sight words in the Scott Foresman series. I used just the words for the first unit. Then an awesome kindergarten friend (Sarah Ebbers) showed me a sight word game she had where the kids had to choose the word that went into the sentence before they got to move on the board. So...for units 2 and 3 of Reading Street, I've created sight word sentence cards.
To create these cards, print on cardstock. then fold in half on the line and glue the halves together. Finally, laminate the cards. To play, the kids read the sentence side and tell their partners the answer for the blank. Then turn the card over to see the correct answer. If they are correct, they get to move to the nearest color that is shown on the answer side. Remember if the card has two colored jewels, the move is to the second colored jewel on the board of that color.
