These compound word puzzles can be used to help your students working on reading and understanding compound words.
This is another free resource for teachers from The Curriculum Corner.
Use these compound word puzzles as you work to help your students understand compound words.
Each puzzle contains a picture at the top. Students will then match the two smaller words to form the larger word.
If you are looking for creative ways for your students to review skills with parents, send a set of these home! Instead of a child sitting along completing a worksheet, they can sit with an adult or older sibling and interact with others while they learn.
Creating Your Compound Word Puzzles
- Begin by printing on card stock – we like to use a heavier card stock to make the puzzles a little sturdier.
- Laminate to ensure durability.
- You might color code the backs with marker dots for easy self-checking.
- Cut and place in a container.
If your students use interactive notebooks, these puzzles might be a fun addition to these. Instead of printing on card stock, print on regular paper. Cut apart the puzzles. Students can then glue the puzzles into their notebooks.
