Neat exercise and challenging

I got this for my 5th grader over the summer before 6th grade. I love the word ladders. They get kids thinking about spelling, but they're also like a logical puzzle. They teach vocabulary as well. My only complaint is that some of the words are old-fashioned, and there's little chance a kid would know them (e.g., aster, till). Because of those random difficult words, I do need to be close by to help. In theory, a child should be able to do them on their own, because they are self-correcting (you can't get the next word right if your current word is wrong). But overall, I'm thrilled with them and would probably do the ladders myself for fun if given the chance!
