Help your students learn to form and read compound words with this collection of practice activities.
This is another free resource for teachers from The Curriculum Corner.
As students begin working on compound words, these materials will give your children practice and review opportunities.
You will find the following Compound Word Activities:
Word Checks These pages can can be used as pre and post assessments if needed. You will find three versions.
Word Capers This activity includes word cards with orange polka dots and a recording page. Students use the word cards to form compound words. You may choose to then have students to form their larger words on a white board or on the recording page.
File Folder Game Glue the two orange swirl pages on the inside of a file folder. Students then use the cards with the small orange polka dots to form the compound words. They play the words on the folder.
Word Builders Print and cut apart the picture and compound word cards. Students match the word with the correct picture. You can follow up on this activity by having students write the larger word and two small words on the recording page.
Word Search Students will read the passage. They will record the compound words and contractions in the chart on the page.
Word Booklet This booklet is designed to print front to back. Cut the booklet in half and then staple. You can have students use a set of word cards or find words in their reading. They will record the word and then illustrate the meaning. At the bottom they will be asked to record the two small words.
All of the colorful center cards are also provided with a white background to help you save color ink.
