Product Description

The clues in these 10 puzzles contain two-word phrases from MY BROTHER SAM IS DEAD. 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.
