I am preparing puzzles for the next volume of the classroom newsletter and thought I might as well make some of the puzzles available online. This year’s newsletter will have a cryptogram every week and I am renumbering them. Here’s a worksheet with the first one: Number 1. I have also posted another Word Mine (#7). For more puzzles (Word Mine and SuDoKu), visit the Puzzles page.

Today I added two new word mine puzzles. Word Mine #5 uses the word palindrome and Word Mine #6 uses the word mockingbird. How many 4-letter, 5-letter, and 6-letter words can you find with in those two words? There are other word mine puzzles on the puzzles page to keep you thinking.

A palindrome is a word, phrase, or sentence which is spelled the same forwards or backwards. Several palindromes were given as examples for extra credit on the English final exam this past semester, including kayak, level, and racecar.   Another example is the phrase A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!

What other palindromes can you find? What is the longest palindrome you can create? Have a contest this week with your friends; the winner is the one with the longest palindrome.

If you have a palindrome, leave a comment on this post.
