Thank you for your interest in the Seasons Word Ladders. Word ladders are such a fun and beneficial tool that work multiple areas of language arts at the same time-- word recognition, decoding, spelling, phonics, vocabulary, and problem solving. These little gems really work the brain, but your students will enjoy it so much, they probably won't even notice!
Within this packet, you'll receive 12 word ladder sheets. There are 3 for each of the following seasons:
I have also included an instruction sheet so that students can easily know what to do.
Word ladders are hands down one of my daughter's favorite ways to work on words. In fact, I can think of numerous instances where she has asked me over and over to do word ladders! I love that I can really see the wheels turning in her brain as do them, letting me know that they are really making her think! It makes her pay attention to the way that words are formed, which really helps to improve spelling and reading fluency.
Just in case your students might need a visual clue, I have included a graphic for each starting word. It also livens up the page, making it even more inviting to students.
Thank you again for your purchase of the Seasons Word Ladders. I hope that you love them as much as I do.
