Product Description
This word ladder bundle includes the following vowel patterns:
short a
short e
short i
short o
short u
mixed short vowels

Students must analyze the clues in order to determine the next word on ladder. Only one or two parts of the word changes with each step up the ladder. Some of the clues come in the form of a sentence, while other clues tell the student what letter or sound to change.

Each word ladder includes three versions. One version does have lines for each individual letter of the word. This will help some students that may not be confident with word ladders, yet. Another version does not include lines for the letters, giving your students an added challenge. The third ladder uses sentence completion for the clue, instead of phonics clues.

An answer key is included.
