Word ladders are a fun and effective way to practice phonics skills. This set contains 36 short vowel word ladders. Each word on the ladder changes by only one (occasionally two) letters at a time. Answer keys are included to glue to the back of the cards. Students use dry erase markers to write each word on the ladder, then flip the ladder over to self-check. The word ladders work great for centers, intervention, or guided reading word work.
