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 extend the YES/ NO game by printing the DOLCH words (small print) ,cutting up the lists and laminating them & including them in the YES /NO packet. Use a blank card to put ?'s about these words e.g. how many times can you find these words in Chapter 2? Chn. list the results on a whiteboard.

  • The Sea words are great to add to the Lighthouse series books when you are doing these books with the children. you could extend the theme to the sea and then to pirates and far away lands and maybe even first contact explorers of Australia.
