A Valentine Day Game Giveaway!

Hey, y'all and happy Saturday! 

With Deanna's amazing success at Teachers Pay Teachers, I couldn't help but wonder if I too could make some extra cash?  So, I uploaded {hopefully} the first of many activities I'd like to put on the site!  Yay!

Here is a preview...



This is a Valentine-themed game oriented around triple-consonant blends (scr-, spl-, str-).  The basic premise of the game is that students read a word from a piece of candy and if they can read it they add it to their candy card {or what looks like a box of chocolates}.  If they can't read it, they return it to the pile.  But, watch out for the Candy Caper!  If you draw the cute little Candy Caper bear, you must return all your collected pieces back to the pile.  The winner is the first student to fill their candy box full of candy words they've read.

You can purchase this game at TpT by clicking below....


OR...

Win yourself a copy of the game by leaving a comment on this post telling me your favorite Valentine candy!  {I'm a sucker for candyhearts, personally!}  I will select 2 winners tomorrow and they will be emailed a downloadable PDF of the game.
{I promise I will select winners tomorrow and not 12 days from now!!!!! Ha!}

Happy Saturday, friends!

Wish they would make "heart peeps" but until then I'll settle for a big box of Stouffer's caramel chocolates!

Carpenter Family Chronicle said...

Truthfully, there is not a candy I do not like. I guess I have never really, truly grown up. If I had to choose it would probably be those sweet tart candy conversational hearts- they can't be the regular ones. They have to be the sweet tart ones.

Jenn said...

A plain old milk chocolate heart works for me! :)

I LOVE the gobstoppers heart shaped candy, even though my dentists says to stop eating candy like that, I can't resist.

My all-time-absolute-favorite Valentine candy are Russel Stover chocolate covered strawberry marshmallow hearts. Try one - you'll be hooked!

One year my husband bought me TWO boxes! 24 of 'em!

Mrs. Wheeler said...

Love your cute game! My favorite Valentine's Day candy, hands down, is a big 'ol heart-shaped box of ESTHER PRICE chocolates! I love both dark and milk! It's the one time of year I actually allow myself to indulge in a huge box of amazingness. And, I make a cheap gift for my hubby, because that's all I ask for! I think you are from OH, so you can probably relate to my sick obsession!

Well, I personally love the heart shaped Reese cups but a nice heart shaped box of assorted chocolates is nice too. Yummy!
