Product Description
This common-core based product supports instruction for standards in Kindergarten through fifth grade.
(KI.L.6, K.RFS.3.c, 1.L.6, 1.RFS.3, 2.L.4d, 3.RFS.3, 3.L.2.e, 3.L.4, 3.L.6, 4.L.4.c, 4.L.6, 5.L.4.d)

Here you have two sets of three-piece puzzles identifying 135 compound words. One set has the word and word parts; the other set has a picture and the word parts. A word list is provided for your reference.

We recommend printing these on cardstock and laminating them for endurance. We find it much easier to laminate the assembled puzzles before cutting apart the pieces.

All of the three-piece puzzles are interchangeable. Therefore, for self-checking purposes, we find it helpful to place stickers on the back of the puzzle pieces, being sure that the same kind of sticker is on the three pieces of the same puzzle.

We have included a very large number of word pairs here so that you will have a comprehensive bank of choices. We find it easier to have a thorough resource that we can pull from over and over again. We have made subsets of these cards and stored them in separate bags. This provides enough for several small groups to each use a set simultaneously, and it allows us to easily rotate and jigsaw (no pun intended) the activities we do with the cards. Having the compound words provided for you two different ways makes it easy for you to differentiate based on individual needs, and it allows you to provide gradual release as your students become ready.

It is helpful for homework practice, center activities, and small-group assignments. The cards lend themselves to vocabulary development and phonetic awareness. These puzzles are excellent for special education and ESL students. For advanced students, we assign additional activities such as using the words provided to create sentences, stories, or poems.

You will be able to use these cards in so many ways!
