Engage students in compound words practice with this literacy center that looks good enough to eat! Students match cupcake bases and toppers to create common, easy-to-decode compound words. The set includes everything you need to create a themed file folder or envelope center, as well as supplemental materials to customize for your classroom.
The complete download includes a ZIP file containing a 13-page PDF with all materials needed for the center, a 3-page PDF preview file with a picture showing a sample completed center, and a 2-page Microsoft Publisher file with editable cupcake "blanks" that you can customize. The full center includes: cover page, complete teacher directions, implementation ideas, student directions, 12 cupcake bases and 12 cupcake toppers which combine to form 12 compound words, answer key, illustrated word bank and picture cards representing the compound words included, and blank cupcakes that can be customized for other uses in your classroom. (Ideas for using the blank cupcakes are also included.)
