Word ladders are fun word puzzles that challenge students to change from one word to another completely different word changing only one letter at a time, using real words along the way. Word ladders support phonics, vocabulary, decoding and spelling.
This set includes four word ladders, each one has two variations to allow you to differentiate. The climber level starts with a word and ends with a different word, but leave six spaces in the middle for students to fill in without support. The hopper level has some letters filled in on each rung, but still challenges students to decide which letters need to be changed to reach the word on top.
The activity has a cute forest creature theme with a short story in the directions to go along with the word ladder.
