What Is Scrammble Pyramid Puzzle?
The Scrammble Pyramid Puzzle is pretty simple to learn with an example. You have a pyramid structure. Just fill in the alphabets to make words. There is only one rule: The letters in the upper layer must be all contained in the lower layer. Look at the 3-layer pyramids below, the words filled are CAN, DANCE and ADVANCE. The 3 letters CAN are in the word DANCE and the 5 letters DANCE are in the word ADVANCE. Just that simple! But it does challenge you! Clues are given in the puzzle, in the examples below, 4 letters, CAND, are given in red and you have to figure out the rest. Sometimes, there are more than one set of answers, that is done intentionally so students may come up with different answers. When you compare answers, you learn and spell more words. The words are generally in the 3-5 grade level for SIS students. More or less clues make the puzzle easier or harder to solve. Sometimes the clues are all the letters but not telling you where they will be placed. For example, given 7 letters, AACDENV, can you build a 3-5-7 pyramid?

How To Play SIS Scrammble Pyramid Puzzle?
(I) Every Friday, you can print a puzzle sheet at school or print it out at home. The puzzle link is on the bottom of this web page. This page is linked to your class web page. It will be automatically changed every week. You have 5 puzzles to play and one practice puzzle you can play online. Get a head start over the weekend. You can ask your sibling or family or friends to play together, but don't let them have all the fun. You should do your share.
(II) You can do one puzzle a day, or you can do more and finish early. Make sure you write in your name, grade and class in the space on the puzzle sheet. Please indicate whether you have played it all by yourself or with someone. Of course, after you have completed the puzzles, if you like you may play the higher or lower grade puzzles for more fun.
(III) After completing the puzzle game, drop the sheet in the SIS Puzzle box at the school office before going home on Friday. Don't forget to print next week's puzzles at school or at home.
(IV) The Scrammble Pyramid puzzle creator, Dr. Wordman, with the help of Mrs. Rose Smith will pick up all the submitted sheets Friday. Dr. Wordman will check them over the weekend and post the results on the web site. You will see how many get all correct and which grade/class has more correct answers. You will not see any name on the web site for security reasons. Your teacher may ask for the answer sheets of your class back from Dr. Wordman to review in class.

Why Do You Want To Play The SIS Puzzle?
The long answer is: Puzzles sharpen your brain and also give you fun. You can play them by yourself or play with friends or family. The short answer is: You want to be a Super-duper Ingenious Student and you want to make your school a Super-duper Ingenious School. Don't You?!
