THIS PRODUCT IS MEANT TO BE USED AFTER STUDENTS HAVE READ THE BOOK.
The clues in these 10 puzzles contain two-word phrases from THE HIDEOUT. 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 of the 10 puzzles.
Not as easy as it sounds! A good spelling workout! SEE THE PREVIEW FOR EXAMPLES.
