These are the kind that have pictures etc and you have to try to find the real word.  For example they might show the word make going up to get the word makeup or the picture of an eye then a heart and then the letter U for I Love You.  One of the classes that my daughter takes in school uses these and she didnt do very well with them and I was looking to see if I could find some to help her at home.

Theresa - I went to Google and typed in "rebus" and it came up with several sites.  You didn't say what age your daughter was, but these looked like fun for a 5-8 year old.  http://www.enchantedlearning.com/Rhymes.html  Scroll down the page and click on one of the pictures.

Thanks for your help, as I didn't even know what these puzzles were called.

Theresa, I use www.puzzlemaker.com frequently in my classroom.  It has a wide variety of puzzles. I think this site might be useful to you.
