    Pyramid Spelling...

    I give all the credit to the teachers here at ProTeacher I saw this idea awhile back and couldn't wait to get back into the classroom, so I could try it.

    Simple, effective, and fun for the kids. Beats the heck out of writing the words WRONG 5xs each!


    p
    py
    pyr
    pyra
    pyram
    pyrami
    pyramid


    With a list of twenty words, I had them do only 5 words a night. They then would use a colored pencil (or highlighter) to outline the word spelled out completely going across and down.

    This allows for them to recheck. I had some of my students turn their paper sideways, so they could line up the letters more easily with the vertical lines.

    Let me know how it works for your students!
