Happy February, everybody! The kids in my class asked me to make a cupcake sight word board game for them, so of course I did! I think this idea was so attractive to the children because they love cupcakes. These Cupcake Sight Word Board Games are free on TPT, and made for two different levels: kindergarten and first grade words. I also made them as cards on a ring, which you can cut out, laminate, and cut out again:

My students love them so much that whenever we have a free moment they ask me to test them on their cupcake sight words.
I did some searching, and I found the book If You Give a Cat a Cupcake by Laura Numeroff. This book is very much in the style of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, and I think it's really good for building short-term and long-term memory. The places that the cat visits are really fun and well-known to the children, including the beach, the gym, and the park.
I placed the ring of sight word cupcake cards inside this cupcake for easy storage:
I also tend to lose my sight word rings, and I thought if I put this one in a larger container I would be able to ask the children to look for it and find it, and they would bring it right to me. Whether you're a blind or sighted teacher, it really helps to include the students in finding things that you need for the daily life of the classroom.
I hope these sweet-treat ideas are helpful to you!
