This is a printable stencil for a train. It can be used for many things. For example, teaching compound words.
Words can be written right onto the train. Each time a new compound word is learned, it can be added to the train, creating a long train of words.
Or, you can cut a slit into the train stencil and slip an envelope into it for storing compound word flashcards.
This can be adapted for teaching all types of words and good for interactive literacy centers or whole class teaching.
