An interactive and engaging phonics/word game. Students climb the ladder by sounding out each word and changing one sound at a time as they go. Pictures prompt them to know which word to sound out on the next line.
Color and black and white word ladders are included. Copy the black and white for whole class use or print and laminate the color templates for repeated use.
