There are a lot of papers that students take to and from school. These word ladders simplify the transport process by organizing each lesson's words on to a separate list that can be attached to a ring. This set accompanies the Houghton Mifflin Journeys series.
How do I use these cards?
These word ladders are a way for my students to practice their high frequency words at home. There are word ladders for all 30 lessons, as well as ladders for the updated 2014 and 2017 Journeys edition. (Lessons 21, 24, and 29) Lessons 1-6 have 6 ladders on a page. The others have 3 ladders on a page.
I copy them onto cardstock, then laminate, and cut them out. I then punch holes in the corners so the students can keep them on a ring.
After introducing the words on Day 1, I hand out the word ladders, we read over the words, play a game with them, and then I have the students put them on their word ring. We continue to add to the ring as the year goes on so they have all of their high frequency words in one spot!
These ladders are also an easy way for parents to know which words to practice. I can easily let them know to practice the Lesson 7 words on the word ring, and the parents understand which words they are to practice with their children.
