Stair Steps - 10/02/12 08:40 AM

Use the letters to build a stair steps of words so that each word contains all the letters of the word above it plus one additional letter from the letter pile. I've started you out with the first word and first letter for each stair step word.

sherlock

Starting Letter Pile: A A A A A D D D D D E E G G I I I I I I N N N N R R R R

Remaining Letter Pile:

= 1. A
= 2. A D
= 3. A I D
= 4. A R I D
= 5. D R A I N
= 6. D A R I N G
= 7. R E A D I N G
= 8. G A R D E N I A
