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!
At first, you may want to read the clues aloud to students, especially beginners. You might also provide additional clues, or elaborate on the meanings of words, to give students help with those that they find difficult!
