How Writing and Riddles works!
• Students are given six clues in each riddle.
• With each clue, they eliminate words from a grid of twenty words.
• After completing the six clues, students circle words that remain to answer the riddle

A mini-lesson riddle with step-by-step suggestions is provided so you can walk through the procedure with your entire class.

Some of the language concepts covered in the clues:
alphabetical order
compound words
helping verbs
proper nouns
punctuation marks
rhyming words
verb tenses
♥ ♥ ♥ Always, samples of BEST SELLING and NEW products ♥ ♥ ♥

We have also included:
As an added bonus, each riddle is accompanied by a page of ideas for creative writing correlated to the riddle theme. Each writing activity contains four writing prompts with a Word Box of eighteen words to stir up their imaginations.
A Student’s Writing Checklist to encourage students to edit their stories. This checklist includes sentence structure, spelling, grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and handwriting.
