building concrete steps cinder block frame?
 
i just bought a house that needs four steps in the front to the porch. there is a frame already made out of cinder blocks and a pile of gravel in the middle. i was just thinking of putting some wood risers in front and pouring in cement, but then the cinder block frame will be open on top. is there a better way to do it? should i just make wood stairs so the treads will cover the cinder block holes?

thanks for any help.

now i am thinking i will run a piece or two or rebar all the way across going into the cinder through a hole i am about to drill. that should help hold the whole thing together right? or is that not necessary? i will pour concrete into the cinder block too.
