Maybe Level 2 was 2 hard :)
I love the Up & Down word game. Try it if you haven’t already. Since this is the first time I’m making it myself I’m going to keep it simple. The answer for line 1 goes down to the first blank in line 2, and so on. These are all 2 word book titles.
What’s the word that goes in both blanks? American
Now on to level 1
___River___ King (Kathy was first :) )
Too easy? How ’bout level 2
Indian ___Killer____ (Hilarie)
Let’s see who figures them out first. Leave a comment with your answers.
