PowerPoint: Compound Words is an eleven slide PowerPoint that defines what a compound word is. Several slides give examples of compound words, what the two smaller words are that make up the compound word as well as give a graphic for the word. Then students are given the chance to figure out what a picture is. First they need to figure out the compound word. Secondly they need to figure out what the two smaller words are that make up the compound word. Then the slide gives the answer so the students can see if they were correct. The PowerPoint is controlled by the click of the mouse. Once the class figures them out, the mouse can be clicked and you can check your answers slide by slide. This PowerPoint would be good for first grade and second grade.
