I'm not sure about your kids but my kids love COMPOUND WORDS! Something about learning this makes them think they are truly sophisticated. If you are teaching compound words, this non seasonal activity is perfect anytime of the school year.
Included you will find three different spinners and corresponding game boards. Their colors match so you know that students have the correct spinner for their board. Simply copy as many boards as you need. I use this for small group instruction so I copy two of each spinner and board for a total of six players.
How to play:
Student spins spinner. They need to say the compound word aloud. They may choose the first or second word from the compound word and find it on their board. They then cover it with a token/chip. The goal is to get four squares in a row covered either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. Very simple and a super fun game format.
