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 (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.

Granny's Candies:

  • Colorful game board (18" x 18")
  • 672 word-meaning cards (3" x 1")
  • 144 "candy" tokens
  • 58 page lesson/activity book
  • Card holder
  • Die
  • Sturdy storage box
Customer Reviews
  1. Granny's Candies Makes Meaningful Connections!
    I have been using Granny's Candies with a student that likely has a Developmental Language Disorder and his brother who is dyslexia, and has difficulty with recall. They both love this game and think very hard about the connections between words and it has stimulated a lot of conversation! I love the way you can increase the difficulty for a particular student. The additional worksheets are also very handy. A great game and I'm looking forward to adding the additional games to this starter game. Excellent value.

  2. Granny’s Candies is the Best Tool
    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!

    I have borrowed this game so often from another therapist that I had to finally order one for my personal use. Love the game and the handy worksheets!

  5. Granny's Candies
    I love this game because it targets all of your language students in a big group, it works on word meanings, WH questions, and if a student is working on EET such as function of objects and similarities and differences. It is a great product!

  6. Granny’s Candies
    Granny’s Candies is such a great tool to target multiple goals in one session. It has so many language elements, and I especially love that there are additional cards that can be added to the game. My students love playing it. It’s very motivating. I definitely recommend this game.

  7. Game to target many goals.
    This game is great for groups of students with different language goals. My elementary students beg to play this game. It is a fairly simple game (collecting the bubble gum) but the students truly enjoy it. It is easy for them to play and understand.

  12. Who doesn't like candy?
    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.

    My students really enjoyed this therapy material. They liked classifying the candies into different categories. They didn't even know that they were learning concepts, for them they were just playing. We had a lot of fun.

    Quality

    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!

    This game is fun, can be played with many students at one time and targets many different areas of semantics. I like it b/c with one game, I can target many goals. A big bonus for this item is that each category has many stimulus items. I don't like that the cards are so little.

    This is a great game to address categories, explaining, describing, and more! It can be tailored to many age groups/levels and kids are highly motivated to win the most "candy." 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!

  28. Great classroom resource
    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.

  35. Favorite Speech Game
    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.

  37. Helpful tool for language development
    Granny's Candies was recommended to me by a speech and language therapist I really respect. She suggested I use it with a 6 year old boy who has significant expressive language delays. Just started using it, but so far it is engaging and well focused, meeting my (and the boy's!) needs.

  39. Great therapy tool!
    This is a great therapy game. I've used it with just language kids and with articulation kids mixed in. Even my high schoolers have enjoyed it. I purchased the add-on sets too and are very pleased with them also. I have found the books that come with the games really beneficial as I have been using the worksheets as my speech homework sheets.

    Granny's candies is a great game for students who need reinforcement of vocabulary and comparing and contrasting.

It offers motivation with stimulating questions re: synonyms and antonyms and comparing and contrasting with added fun using the "candies" and filling up the candy "jars."

  47. Good game...bad cards
    I love the game but the cards are terrible. I hate how small they are. They won't stay in a stack and spread all over the table. When I go to pick them up it takes forever. I'd rather have bigger cards.

    I had hoped to order Granny's Candies for next year but due to reductions, I had to remove it from my budget. I was thrilled when it appeared as a 50% off item online in December. 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.

  50. Tons of Questions
    We absolutely love this game. It comes with tons and tons of questions in lots of different categories. The kids love the color tokens (candies) and I love the book with the sugestions and printables..makes my job so much easier. The questions are great for all levels and can be easily adapted. You get a lot of bang for your buck...worth every dime.

  51. Granny's candies
    The best part about this game is the additional cards you can purchase targeting other areas of language which is so important when therapy is delivered in a group. However, I wish the game had candy dishes w/ lids to make set up easier and the game board more special.

  56. Granny's candies is great!
    I am so glad that I bought this game and the add-ons that are associated with it. My students (K-6th) love it. I really like the verbs and figurative language review. I would recommend the game to all those that are wanting something new to play with their kids. I love that I could use it as a speech game too! Just say some words and pick up the number of candies that you roll. If you have older kids, I would recommend getting the add-ons for sure! The figurative language add on it great.

    This is a great game that is useful in so many ways. You can use the question cards that are included. But you can also use the game with artic cards, or other questions. And it's so easy to use this game with a group of kids with different goals. It's also very simple to learn, so there's no confusion, even for younger kids.

    I wanted to express how much I love Grannies Candies and my students. It allows me to work on more than one objective with them. You wouldn't think the students were working on language objectives because they have so much fun it. Thank you Super Duper for a great product!!!!

  75. Great Flexible Game
    I bought this game because of the variety of language concepts that it targeted. However, when I opened it up and tried it out with some students, I was blown away by the possibilities of ways to adapt the game to fit your treatment goals. 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!

  76. Effective
    The cards are effective and teach the corresponding skills but its kind of boring and my son was getting frustrated because there were no easy ones for him so- there was no sence of play just failure- so we are putting this game down for a bit untill his skills increase enough to where he can at least get some right =/

    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).

    As a mother of a fourth-grader who has Asperger's, I particularly enjoy all of the games and social skills activities that you have available. All of your products appear to be so fun and enjoyable for the kids, that they probably don't even realize that they are picking up some very important life skills while they are playing them. That's important, because, after all, why shouldn't social skills games be just as entertaining as any childrens game? You guys obviously 'get' kids ---thanks!!!

    I enjoy every single product that I've ordered through Super Duper! This includes the Carry All Cart that goes along with me to 4 schools, the reward stickers, and, of course, games such as Granny's Candies and WH Question Blastoff. Students enjoy coming to speech and language class because of the great materials they are excited to work with. They even request homework! Students love the Artic Stories and Auditory Processing Super Pack...materials which help them make progress toward their IEP objectives at home!

    I love Granny's Candies! It's so versatile and I can use it with so many of my students. I love Super Duper Publications. I just spent almost $500 of my total budget on Super Duper products and I can't wait to start using them!
