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.

  • The mice positional words have been a success in my ESL class. I have used the large mouse as a puppet to assess understanding and the students feel very comfortable playing with it. the material has allowed the lowest language proficiency students produce responses and participate actively with confidence.
