In this Promethean ActivInspire flipchart, students are presented with word ladders. Each ladder begins with a single-letter word at the bottom and students are instructed to add letters to the beginning or end of this first word and then each subsequent word to complete the ladder with a CCVC word. The phonemic awareness and/or phonics activity is enhanced by both word and picture clues. The teacher may choose whether or not to reveal the new word's spelling, have the students use the pen to spell the word on their own, or concentrate on phonemic awareness without showing the word's spelling at all. This activity may be especially helpful in introducing word ladders - how they work and their rules - to students before giving students word ladders independently.
