Ideas for Use

Word Detective Pyramid - Suggestions for Use


  • Print and Laminate large A4 (or enlarge to A3) to use for whole class practice or for use in small group work.

  • The method used here - needs to be taught explicitly with lots of practice and modelling - soon you will have your kiddies knowing exactly what to do as it becomes part of their 'word play' each week.

  • Pop each of your focus vocab/theme or sounds/grapheme related words for the week into the pyramids to 'pull out' the syllables and sounds. (even sight words can work)

  • Another lovely idea is for each child to do up a large A4 sheet using their NAME - great for display.

  • Relate the sounds / graphemes 'pulled out' to phoneme / grapheme charts.

  • Don't hold back with the words - find some really adventurous words and go for it - the children love doing the really 'hard' ones. (make it fun for children to 'bring in' really 'hard' words from home each day)

  • You could make up a whole set of pre-written pyramids if you like to display certain words. (laminate after you have written on them)

  • Use the bottom row (sounds / graphemes) for children to find the appropriate grapheme tile and glue the word together using these sound / grapheme tiles and the bottom row as a guide.

  • I believe with report writing, it's important to not generalise or be too 'flowery' in the comments. As a parent, I appreciate knowing which skills/areas my children need strengthening in. So as a rule of thumb - when it comes to report writing - I always start with a positive, then I mention an area that the student needs further development in and then I finish off on a high with another positive. Works a treat!

  • Great site. I downloaded lots of resources when I taught year 1. However, I cannot find much for Year 3 and I was looking forward to it. Could you please upload more for stage 2. Thanks

  • There are about 11 or 12 spelling choices for the speech sound sssss, so look at the THRASS resource chart. Not all there. It has left my child bored, and being told to learn the charts which still don't help him to spell the words he wants to spell, and is always being told its a catchall. A thumbs down for me too. Ken
