Product Description
This packet represents a hierarchy of several activities depending on the ability level of each student. There are a variety of ways in which you may choose to use these activities. Place the activities in a literacy center for independent work or divide the class into teams for a group game. My students especially enjoy the group interactions with their teammates. This packet includes an answer key by number code for all the activities. Each activity has a total of thirty six cards. Any activity may be used with the game board.

Activity #1: A Picture Is Worth A Compound Word
This activity requires students to guess the
compound word by using a picture prompt.
Place the laminated cards in a shoebox.
A student reaches in, pulls out a card and
identifies the compound word by looking at
the picture. A great introduction for learning
compound words.

Activity #2: Footnotes
his activity combines a picture prompt with the
text. Laminate and cut the text cards. Scatter the
cards around the room. Distribute a picture card
to each student. Students search the room to
locate the two words that form the compound word
that matches their picture. A star is shown on the
word that completes the compound word.

Activity #3: Backstage Pass
This activity requires a student to form a compound
word after given the first part of the word. Use this
as a “scoot 1-2-3” activity. Place the thirty six
camera cards on desks and other surfaces around
the room. Students number their paper from 1-36.
Students are assigned to start at one location. Tell
them that when they hear the word “scoot” they
shift to the next location . Then they write the
answer to that card in the appropriate space on their
paper that matches the card’s number.

Activity #4: Compound Keywords
This activity requires a student to read the
definition of the target compound word and write
the word on the card. The spaces indicated on
the card provide a cue as to the exact spelling of
the compound word.

Activity #5: Word-Wise
Wrap up practicing compound words with this
final activity by having students use the movie
reel poster and worksheet to write/define and draw
three compound words. Another suggestion is to
use the activity by having students write as many
compound words in a timed setting.
