This is a simple game. First, I used tape to create the ladder. Then, I wrote down high frequency words for Abby, and we did flash cards with letters and sounds for Kenzie. The goal is to move all the way up the ladder. If you get the word right, you advance to the next rung. If you get it wrong, you fall all the way back to the bottom. The can work for kids on all levels and subjects. It can be used for vocabulary, reading, math facts, foreign language practice – the possibilities are endless.
