A friend of mine that is a teacher told me recently how much she loves giving word ladders to her 3rd grade students. I didn’t realize teachers would prefer them over word searches because they are better teaching tools. Since then I’ve found that they are a little challenging to put together! It’s not easy having to run through the alphabet 30+ times trying to put together a string of words that work!! So that’s why I’m really happy I was able to come up with these Christmas themed word ladders – with Christmas words, no less! Trust me, it wasn’t easy!!
