Teach Compound Words Without Worksheets! 

Teaching compound words is quite often one of the concepts that is the most fun to teach in early grades. Students love learning new words, searching for combined words, and creating examples of compound words using pictures and crafts. However, very often, compound word instruction occurs through the use of traditional paper/pencil worksheet activities. This year, we’re excited to help you step outside of the box and get rid of those years-old compound word handouts.

Try an Interactive Compound Word Slideshow for Teachers!

This year, teach your compound word standards with a brand-new standards-based, content-aligned Compound Word teaching slide deck. This slide deck is geared specifically to the primary learner and provides them with a visually appealing and easy-to-understand lesson on compound words. It features high-interest visuals, simple instructional explanations, and numerous interactive opportunities for skill-building. Some activities included are:

  • Combining words to form compound words (with picture prompts)
  • Separating compound words into their word parts
  • Compound Word I Spy- Students will search through a group of images to identify compound words.
  • And more!
