This interactive smartboard lesson provides both a lesson with an introduction to compound words AND practice in identifying compound words. Students will use a variety of activities to work with compound words. Examples and Non-Examples are given and they will need to determine which words are actually compound words. All slides are linked to answers so the lesson is self checking. It can be used as a teacher directed whole group lesson, mini-lesson, small group, partner work, or as an independent lesson in a station or center. The end of the lesson culminates with a fun game/competition in which students will try to write as many compounds word that contain the word OVER in them while the song is playing. A direct link to a safe site with a song attached is an easy click. Great for grades 2-5 depending on the level of the class. Created with Smart Notebook 11. SMART Notebook software is required to use this lesson.
