Blends and Digraph Spelling Activity


Use Billy Bee’s Spelling and Vocabulary Word Links as individual early reading and spelling practice or as a class as you change one letter from flower to flower to get to the end of the puzzle.

Practice recognizing and spelling words with blends and/or digraphs by changing just one letter from link to link. Each puzzle is provided four times: worksheets (more than one ladder per page) with word clues and picture clues, and a single ladder per page, again once with word clue and again with picture clues. These puzzles are great practice for vocabulary and spelling review for early readers.

In this blends and digraphs Spelling Activity, Billy Bee provides 12 unique word ladders with words that have either blends or digraphs or both. The Blends Word Link puzzles have 3, 4, or 5 missing words to figure out.

Help Billy Bee get from the first word to the last one as he visits each flower on the page. Change one letter to find a new word to meet the given definition.

How to Use This Product

Use these pages as individual early reading and spelling practice (see the worksheets) or as a class (the single ladder per page would be great for a whole class challenge). Students will be delighted to solve the puzzles.

These 12 puzzles are provided 4 times:

  • Multiple ladders per worksheet format with word clues
  • Multiple ladders per worksheet with picture clues
  • Individual pages per ladder with word clues
  • Individual pages per ladder with picture clues.

About Word Ladders/Word Links
