Note: These puzzles are fun but challenging. If hints haven’t been provided, teachers may want to insert hints into the puzzles before copying, allow extra time, or have students work in pairs.
Each of these QUOTEFALLS contains a quotation from DEAR MR. HENSHAW. Students form individual words of the quotation by transferring letters from below the grid to squares in the columns directly above.
QUOTEFALLS require students to use their knowledge of DEAR MR. HENSHAW along with their knowledge of spelling, word usage, and vocabulary! Once they get the hang of them, students love these puzzles!
