Robbie and I have been playing modified versions of Candyland and Chutes and Ladders. I made word cards to use instead of the color cards (Candyland) or spinner (Chutes and Ladders). Each card has a word for the player to read and a value (based upon phonetic difficulty) of 1, 2 or 3. I don't wish to discourage him by using only difficult words. This older photo shows some of his first set of cards.
When it's his turn, Robbie draws a card and reads the word. If he gets it on the first try, he can move his game piece the number of spaces listed on the card. If he doesn't read it correctly on the first try, I help him and it is set aside to be re-read at the end of the game.
