Where the Red Fern Grows: 10 Word Merge puzzles—One "word" becomes two!
Note: This product is meant to be used after students have read the book.

Also note: These puzzles can be challenging, so teachers may want to provide hints before copying for distribution.

The clues in these 10 puzzles contain two-word phrases from WHERE THE RED FERN GROWS. But there's a catch: The two words, while retaining the original order of their letters, have been merged into one, and the second word might begin before the first! Students must decipher the two words to solve each puzzle. More difficult than it sounds!

Word Merges are great spelling workouts—and they're fun! See the preview for examples.
