A really fun lesson that deals with compound words! It is hard to find lessons on compound words that are suitable for the older grades. I taught the first part of this lesson yesterday and some of the riddles my students came up with were hilarious!

Hi, Laura! I bought Writing Riddles with Compound Words. However, when I print it off, the print is fuzzy. Any suggestions?

On  February 6, 2013Laura Torres answered:
Hello,
I hadn't heard this before, so I downloaded the file from the site and printed it on another printer, and I can see that the print is fuzzy on some of the pages. I will correct the problem and have a new version up tomorrow evening (2/7). Check under your "purchases" tab and then you can download the updated file. Thank you for bringing this to my attention, and I apologize for any inconvenience.
