Students will have the opportunity to try and decode two cryptogram puzzles, both of which are traditional Irish blessings. An alphabet key is provided for them to fill in as they figure out the letters.Two letters have been filled in to help the students get started.
The following two Irish blessings are featured:
May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine on your windowpane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near to you.
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
May the road rise up to meet you,
May the wind always be at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
and rain fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
The first page is the worksheet, then the second is the answer key.
