Great first game, like Candyland, only FREE

This is a simple colored board game with a matching spinner and cards. Players learn to take turns and follow simple rules. Each turn they move their marker to the matching color on the board.

I used six colors:

  • blue (cyan)
  • purple
  • red
  • orange

For those who have more money than time or other reasons to buy; I sell games.

A fun way to practice reading phonics lists

This single game, G, C, Ph, Y, Gn Stephanie's Spinner Card Game, is included in the Phonics Games Level Two (II) set (15 games $7) and is sold at Currcick.com separately (for $1).

Players may use the spinner or the category cards to play this game. Players read all 25 words each time they play and even the hesitant reader ask to play again.

You could use the game cards to play MatchIt if you have the extra cards from another MatchIt card game.

For a FREE full game using Categories, check this out on teachwithgames.com

I have two “Stephanie's Spinner Card Games” one for Categories of Information and one for Sets of Information. The rules are not exchangeable.

Sets have a specific number of members and categories can have an undisclosed number of members. For example:


One complete set in Phonics – {an image of} an apple



One complete set in Math - {an image of} five items





One category in Phonics – words that have a short 'a'

One category in Math - multiples of 5

Categories are never 'complete.'

When I create a game, I start with filling out my answer key. Then, fill out the game cards using the key. I have a free template for game cards (plus a bunch of free printable games) on teachwithgames.com, for members...

Here are the blank rules to make your own Printable Game using categories of information.

memorizing the × 5 family with money

This single game is included in the Multiplication Games Level One (I) set (15 games $7) and is free at teachwithgames.com separately. This game is free to members, sign up for a free membership today.

I use Gotcha as an introduction to a new concept. The information is written in a specific order on the answer key, players just take turns drawing cards, trying to be the first to collect the cards in the same order.

In this Gotcha game players are collecting the 5 multiplication family in sequential order using nickels.

All of the rules that we use at teachwithgames.com are published under the Help Tab on the website.

An example of a Stephanie's Board Game,  mentioned in the previous post is this Counting Game. This game board has all of the members of each of the sets placed on a space trail. This example is an Early Learning Game, for older students (like in our Phonics Games), the members would be mixed up on the board.


Here's a sample from Zeke's First Counting Board Game

Players spin a spinner or draw a card and move around the board touching each member of their randomly selected set.
