Teaching compound words is helpful when teaching students to analyze words and look for chunks and words within a word when decoding. This set includes compound words and pumpkin pie so it is super fun to use in November when nearing Thanksgiving but certainly can be used all year.
This product contains two types of cards. The first set includes whole pumpkin pies that are divided into two sections. The top has the compound word and the bottom has the matching picture. the other set of cards includes a slice of pumpkin pie...each including the first part of the compound word (in green for "go") or the second part with the second part of the compound word (in maroon/red for "stop"). Students are to match the two slices that go together with the whole pie with the complete word and the picture.
This super fun activity can be used in a guided reading group, whole group with your kiddos in a circle around you, with pairs and groups, with parent volunteers, or student tutors. Not only will this make your kiddos super hungry, but they will enjoy and learn from this activity.
