Granny's Candies® Board Game

Let Granny treat your students to some old-fashioned fun! Combine the excitement of picking colorful "candy" tokens from Granny's candy jars with hundreds of opportunities to expand vocabulary skills. First, you fill up the "candy jars" with "candy" (soft, foamy, and colorful tokens). Then, players choose question cards from one of eight semantic areas (or mix and match cards). Students answer the questions, roll the die, and pick "candy" from the jars. The player with the most "candy" at the end of the game wins. Sounds yummy! You receive 672 word-meaning cards (3" x 1") (84 for each area below):

  • What belongs in this group?
  • Which one doesn't belong?
  • Give a describing word.
  • How are they alike?
  • What do these have in common?
  • What is this used for?
  • How are they different?
  • Give an action word.

Your extra ingredients include a colorful game board (18" x 18"), 144 "candy" tokens, a lesson/activity book, card holder, and die. Let's cook up some fun!

    I love this product! I bought #1 when it first came out and have added all of the language rich series since. I use a fun flashy spinner and timer with the cards and the kids request it offen to work on their language goals. My middle school, upper elementary and my stuttering students enjoy the challenge. Thank for a great product Granny!

    Both of my boys with ASD (ages 7 & 11) enjoy playing this game. The oldest thinks it's a bit easy (but fun), so I'm glad I purchased the other booster sets. Their therapist seems to like this game too & has reported that it's been a great tool for building Vocab skills, Grammar & a variety of other LA skills, while also working on social skills (including being a good sport). My boys are quite competitive, so they thoroughly enjoy competing for the candies. This game is proving to be a great addition to our educational resources for both therapy & home-schooling. I love that they're working on LA skills (which is a weakness for them both) without feeling like it's work.

    I work in a middle school and always hesitated to buy this product thinking it was for younger grades. I was so wrong. My students, colleagues and I love this product!! First of all, the vocabulary and concepts are pretty high level and just what my special education and English Language Learners need. And those foam circle candies are so cute and attractive that we all love handling them (even the 8th grade boys!). My only complaint is that Super Duper doesn't sell an extra game board and packs of foam circle candies. My colleague and I "fight" for this product every day since we got it. An extra board and candies would solve that problem nicely. Especially since we have the add on sets too. Don't hesitate to get this for older students!

I'm hoping to get the expansion packs to add more questions to the already huge repertoire. You can also use the question cards with other games, so it's very versatile!

    I first used Grannnie's Candies when I was in graduate school- my supervising SLP had a copy in her classroom. I recently decided to invest in my own copy and I'm so happy I did. I find that I can use this game with a variety of different learning-levels and styles and I can adjust the questions as needed. Though it's a simple concept, my students really enjoy the game. I haven't used any of the worksheets that come with the game yet, but it's a nice additional resource.

    This game is great for practicing a multitude of semantic skills including describing target vocabulary by function and category, comparing and contrasting, and providing actions words. This game can also be utilized to address pragmatic skills including turn-taking, maintaining topic, and engaging in communicative exchanges with peers. The game board and candy pieces can also be used as a reinforcer for any other goal/s the students may have.

It arrived at a perfect time; the week before Christmas break. My students needed something to keep their attention and still address their IEP goals. Granny's Candies fit the bill. They loved it and the variety of questions allowed me to use it with many different groups and ages. Even the 4th graders thought it was COOL.

I have been very happy with this game so far. The one tiny complaint that I would have is that the questions have a WIDE range of difficulty so they need to be read previous to administering to make sure they are age appropriate. Thanks for making a great product!

    Quality

    I purchased this game to address basic language concepts with elementary-aged children on my caseload. There is an excellent mix of concepts and varying degrees of difficulty within the target concept. I simply select the target concept on which I'm wanting to focus in therapy and before the child comes in, sort through and choose cards that won't be too difficult for them. Sometimes, I select easy target concepts and pair them with a harder concept so the child will experience success in some areas while being challenged in others. This is a great game and quite motivating. It is easy to adapt as well (If the child answers the question correctly, they get to choose a candy. If they miss the question, they give the therapist on of their candies - the kids REALLY want to keep their candies so they work extra hard not to miss any questions).

    You can use this game in therapy and target 3 separate goals with 3 seperate kids simultaneously! LOVE IT! One of the best purchases I've made so far as a practicing SLP.

    I really like the flexibility of the kit. If I have a group that is mixed articulation and language, I can still use the board, tokens and dice, but use the language cards and add in the vocabulary cards as needed.

    My students ask for Granny's Candies every time! There are cards to target many areas of langauge so that it is adaptable to meet many different IEP goals and objectives. In addition, the foam "candies" are reinforcing for students. At the end of our treatment time we can count, compare stacks, etc. to determine a winner. Another great product from Super Duper!

    This is a great game. The cards are colorful and interesting, but focused on the targets. The gumball machine is a great way to keep kids motivated. I have a few kids who ask for this game regularly!
