We had SO much fun learning about compound words! The students learned that a compound word is made when two words are put together. Pan + Cake = Pancake! I showed the students how to use their hands for this and they LOVED it! I noticed so many of them putting one hand out, two hands out, and then CLAP together to make a compound word!
I made Compound Words Flip Books for the students to practice creating and reading Compound Words. The students cut out their words and then we stapled them onto their book. They created two books of compound words that included the words house and hand. The students took turns reading their books to partners and identified each word using their hands. Hand + Shake = Handshake! Dog + House = Doghouse!
