Word Stairs

This week I found myself with 5 extra minutes before a fire drill.  Not one to sit around and waste time ,{which is a disaster waiting to happen in a 1st grade classroom anyways} I drew a staircase on the board.  I wrote a CVC word at the bottom and began calling on students to change ONE letter to make a new word.  We continued until we reached the top of the staircase.
 My students LOVE this simple activity and it’s great for reviewing phonics and spelling skills!
I created some Word Stairs that I will be putting in our Word Work tub for Daily 5.
You can click HERE to download them for FREE.  I also included a blank sheet so you could create your own or have your students choose the beginning word.
Enjoy!
