Word Pyramids

🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through September 30th, 2022. Join today!


Students will add one letter at each step to form new words.

My motto is always: "interesting" is more fun than perfectly correct. If a student has an unexpected idea, let them run with it!

Original idea found in Herbert Kohl's *A Book Of Puzzlements from 1981.*


  1. Students build on my Word Pyramid starting points.
  2. I ask students to find lots of two-letter words before moving on to the specific Word Pyramid challenges.


The registration window closes on September 30th, 2022

Send me some samples!
