EL Education Kindergarten Skills Block | Candy Castle Fluency Game Cycle 1

If you're looking for a fun and engaging way to liven up your EL Education small group time--look no further! As a twist on a classic board game, Candle Castle is one activity that your students are sure to request time and again.

Candy Castle is the perfect interactive EL Education center activity that gets your kiddos practicing their cycle and high-frequency words. Embedded in the game are opportunities for both reading and writing. As students work with partners or in small groups, they will also practice speaking and listening skills. Students will strengthen recognition and fluency skills as they identify picture cards and review words from previous cycles.

Make sure to click on the preview to see more! This resource includes:

  • 2 game boards of various sizes
  • recording page for students to write the words
  • 20+ inclusive game pieces for students to choose from
  • cycle word cards
  • cycle picture cards
  • HFW cards
  • directions page

While it is aligned with the EL Education Curriculum, Candy Castle can also be used as a standalone product or as a supplement to other curricula. My 3 year old even loves to play the candy game, which is what we call it at our house!

As a part of your EL Education small group skills block, Candy Castle will allow your students to progress over time while still enjoying the routine of an exciting and familiar game. This means students will have the perfect context of play-based learning to both practice new skills and gain self-assurance along the way. As the content becomes more challenging, your students confidence and understanding will also grow. All this without having to continuously teach new games/routines--a major teacher-win in my book!
