Product Description

The clues in these 10 puzzles contain two-word phrases from THE PEARL. 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.

* Across Five Aprils
* Anne Frank Remembered
* Dragonwings
* Farewell to Manzanar
* The Hunger Games
* The Light in the Forest
* My Brother Sam Is Dead
* Nothing But the Truth
* The Outsiders
* The Pearl
* The Summer of the Swans
* There’s a Girl in My Hammerlock
* Walk Two Moons
* The Witch of Blackbird Pond
