Day 21: Fraction Word Puzzle

One of the New Century books, the Year 7 Teacher Resource Pack, has a fraction puzzle where you take a specified fraction of each word and add those letters to the blanks to complete a riddle. I've used this sheet a lot and had lots of fun with it. So I made my own for Mathsmas.

Also, making the think up was a very demanding literacy task for me! Once your students have had a go at one of these types of puzzles, get them to make up their own. There's loads of quote sites around or they can use some favourite song lyrics or whatever else. Thinking of words that contain the letters you want can be quite tricky.
