Pyramid and Square Word Games

01 Last Letter Pyramids
Elicit a 3 letter word.
e.g. and. The next word must use the last letter of the previous word and be one letter longer.

and
drip
paste
easier
revised
december
racehorse
earthquake
environment

When it gets too difficult you could go back down to 3 again...
Some rules: No repetition of words in other forms or plurals allowed.

02 One letter Pyramid
Instead of using the last letter first letter system use the same first letter all the time.

bus
back
bring

Then for the next game change the letter.

03 Word Squares
Draw a 4 x 4 square. Place a letter in diagonally as in the example below.

n _ _ _

and then complete with words...

For more advanced students try bigger squares.
