Compound Word Activities
This simple anchor chart took just a few seconds to create. It was a wonderful teaching tool. Students had to find two words from the sticky notes that were randomly placed on the table to form a compound word, and then place them on the chart.

Free Printable Graphic Organizer
Print the organizer onto colored paper.
Students write two words, one on each side of the organizer, that when put together will form a compound word.
In the center of the organizer, students will write the definitions of each compound word in the first row of boxes. In the second row of boxes, they draw illustrations of the compound words.
To assembly the foldable organizer, fold the organizer on the dotted lines and cut on the solid lines between the words.
See the illustration below for the completed organizer.
This teaching set contains cards to make 14 compound word chains. To make the chain each word forms the end of one compound word and the beginning of another.
