Compound words are important for practicing chunking skills and increasing reading fluency! Included are 16 examples of compound words and a recording sheet. Laminate and reuse as a center. I’ve also included an ink-friendly black and white version!
-Post the whole heart cards with compound words around the room. Give each child a piece of a heart with part of the compound word. Tell the students to walk around the room to find the compound word that matches their piece.
-Use as a matching game to match the parts of the word to the whole.
Use the recording sheet to reinforce the concept and practice writing and reading compound words!
