Creature Crunchers

When I saw Heidi at Swamp Frog First Graders posted her adorable number crunching monsters I knew I needed to post my Creature Crunchers!  This activity is very similar to word ladders or change one sound.  The children start off making the first word with magnetic letters and then change one sound to make a new word. For example, they make the word pig and change pig to wig and wig to dig and dig to dog and dog to dot.  This is so great because it focuses on initial, medial and final sounds. I hope you can use this with your kiddos!  I would love for you to leave me a heart note and let me know what you think.

I just started ladders with my firsties yesterday, so these will be great for independent practice, thank you! One question, what is the last page for?
