This highly engaging PowerPoint contains visuals and animation to teach the concept of compound words. The first slide explains the definition of a compound word and then this concept is applied using the story "The Scarecrow" by Sheldon Cline. The story is displayed on the PowerPoint slides and each compound word is bolded. You are able to click on the compound word and it will redirect you to a slide that shows the two small words it is comprised of and how, together, it makes a compound word. There are 20 examples of compound words throughout the story and an individual slide for each one that includes visuals and animation. At the end, there is an activity for students to complete in which they match the words in each column to create a compound word.
This engaging PowerPoint is a great reference for teachers to use to teach compound words in their classroom. I hope you find it useful in yours!
