Words can hide in three different patterns:

The last letter of the first word and the first three letters of the second word

Pssstt!! Here’s a handy hint to help you reach superstar status:

Try covering all of the letters that you’re not looking at with your thumbs.  Move along the sentence so that you only see four letters at a time.

 

Now it’s time for you to be a hidden word detective and hunt down those sneaky words! Good luck and don’t forget to look out for the patterns.
