FREE Candyland Sight Word Games with grade specific cards for Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st Grade, 2nd Grade, and 3rd Grade Dolche sight words. GREAT RESOURCE (homeschool, language arts)
The printable sight word cards I created are intended to be used with a traditional Candyland board, but these cards or Candyland Inspired game is in no way licensed or endorsed by the makers of Candyland.

I love making learning FUN!

Here is a really fun way for kids to practice learning sight words. You know those words that appear in about 70% of books kids will read and many do not follow typical phonics patterns. They just need to learn them. And learn them really well!

The easiest way for kids to learn sight words is with lots of repetition.

There are age specific cards for: Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 3rd grade kids.

Sight Words Candyland

students of different ages can play together with their own color coded dolch sight word cards

To play this fun sight words game all you need is:
  • the game board from Candy Land
  • player pieces (we used the ones that came in the box)
  • sight word cards (see download below)
The game is played like the traditional Candy Land except that kids must read the sight word on the card they draw before they can move their piece.

Sight Word Candy land game is fun for kids from Preschool - Kindergarten - 1st grade - 2nd grade - 3rd grade

One of my favorite things about this sight word game is that my kids can all play together. The sight word cards are all color coded by level. So as we play my Preschooler only reads the Pre-Primer Sight Words, my 1st Grader reads the Pre-Primer, Primer, and 1st grade words and my 3rd grader reads all the words.

This can be done by keeping separate piles or making one big one and just using the color code to read the ones that your child should be able to read.
