Product Description

Also note: These puzzles can be challenging, so teachers may want to provide hints before copying for distribution.

The clues in these 10 puzzles contain two-word phrases from BLOOD ON THE RIVER. But there's a catch: the two words, while retaining the original order of their letters, have been merged into one, and the second word might even begin before the first! Students must decipher the two words to solve each puzzle. Word Merges are great spelling workouts--and they're fun! See the preview for examples.
