To solve this self-checking word building pyramid puzzle, students read clues on each side of the pyramid and then change and rearrange letters to create words until they reach the top—where a final clue helps them uncover a mystery word!
This engaging puzzle format gives students independent practice in analyzing sound-symbol relationships, decoding, building spelling skills, and broadening vocabulary to become better readers!
After students solve the puzzle, encourage them to look at the two bottom words and the final word up at the top of the pyramid. Ask them to tell how these three words are connected to each other and to the puzzle title!
