A fun spelling mystery for second grade sleuths

Kids love learning through amusing games and activities—and what's more fun than learning to spell by solving a mystery? As they weave their way through Word Detective, they'll learn to spell 200 words through 130 engaging puzzles. When they complete the spelling (grade 2) book, they'll be able to solve "The Case of the Hidden Gold."

Each chapter in this spelling (grade 2) book will take them through different themes like friends, family, and animals. Creative puzzles will help them practice the words, and they'll use some of them in their own sentences.

This spelling (grade 2) book includes:
  • This is going to be F-U-N!—They'll encounter plenty of spelling (grade 2) exercises including Letter Slide, Merry-Go-Round, and Crack the Code.
  • Whodunit—The answers to the puzzles reveal secret letters that, when put together, solve the case.
  • Words they'll use—They'll learn words for colors, emotions, and other topics from 10 chapters that will help them describe the world around them.

Word Detective is everything a spelling (grade 2) book should be and more! Learning new words has never been this much fun.
