Word Ladders

Have you ever tried Word Ladders with your class?  I used these when teaching 3rd grade and thought I'd try it with my first grade kiddos.   I've just begun using them and they LOVE them!!  We complete them together before we begin our word work lessons.  This helps them get their brains thinking about words and changing letters to make new words.
