Skywords: an app for word ladders!

This great application combines both building off of words, like scrabble, and building up from words! You could turn “RUN” into “BUN” by stacking a “B” on top of the “R”. You could also turn it into: stun, runt, bunt, etc.

The challenge: just like scrabble, if you don’t have a letter that you are looking for you can pass on your turn, or swap letters. This may be challenging for some students because they have to be a little flexible with their thinking, and a stronger vocabulary might be needed.

Adaptations for different students: I do think that this game could be played with a teacher guiding students with their thinking, or with student pairs.
