Whether you’re a beginning reader, a second language learner, or an adult, this game is fun and challenging. Spelling, phonics, vocabulary and logic skills are all enhanced by playing the Word Ladder Game. For children, it’s great practice for thinking, spelling, and reading skills. For adults, it’s a fun way to get lost in an absorbing puzzle when you need a quick break from your daily routine.
The app presents a beginning and ending word. You move letter tiles to form a new word that differs by one letter. The words scroll up and down so that you can see all the words on the ladder. An eraser allows you to go back and make changes. The goal is to change the first word to the last word using the fewest steps possible. A built-in dictionary checks to verify that your entry is a valid word.
