"A Fond Farewell" is a CODE PUZZLE developed in the exact same format as that of another great product I have for sale titled: "The Little Book of Secret Code Puzzles: Pearls of Wisdom & Encouragement Waiting to be Discovered." Students love these CODE PUZZLES, which are solved in much the same manner as puzzles are solved on the syndicated TV game show WHEEL OF FORTUNE. Each puzzle contains clues on the bottom of the page. Students fill in the letters and then use a little bit of logical reasoning to figure out other letters, and then entire words. I have written the puzzle with what I call a "solving thread," where one clue leads to another clue, and then another, etc., until the entire puzzle is solved. Students who understand how a CODE PUZZLE works will race to try to be the first in the class to completely solve it, allowing you to offer help to those students who are not quite sure what to do.
The puzzle is provided in two versions. One puzzle is a farewell for a short class that has lasted just weeks, while the other puzzle is written for a class that has lasted for months, or an entire school year.
Full step-by-step instructions are provided with the puzzle, but I believe that if you don't intuitively understand how to solve it at first glance, you will have an "ah-ha!" moment after reading a few of the step-by-step instructions I've provided. Believe me, you'll instinctively understand what to do to solve the puzzle after reading a few of the steps. CODE PUZZLES are a lot of fun!
