Note: This product is meant to be used after students read the book.
Also note: These puzzles are challenging so teachers may want to provide hints or allow students to work in pairs.
The clues in these 10 puzzles contain two-word phrases from IN THE YEAR OF THE BOAR AND JACKIE ROBINSON. But there's a catch: the two words, while retaining the original letter order, have been merged into one, and the second word may begin before the first! Students must decipher the two words to solve each puzzle.
Not as easy as it sounds! A good spelling workout! SEE THE PREVIEW FOR EXAMPLES.
