Fun word challenges for you and your students! Small words wrapped within longer words await your ingenuity in identifying them, correctly spelling them, and strategically locating them in sentences to produce logical statements. Each Word Wrapper puzzle provides that satisfying “aha!” sense of completeness when you discover its missing word or words and their special niche within the sentence.
In addition to being great fun, the puzzles can also help improve reading skills. Good readers are often able to figure out unknown words by logically considering possibilities based on context and sentence structure. Word Wrappers provide practice in examining context and structure in order to find the correct words for the blanks. The puzzles also reinforce spelling skills and provide an opportunity to expand vocabulary.
These puzzles were originally published by NASCO as a book, titled Spellbinders Level A.
