When the students return, let them hunt for words around the room. Challenge them to find suitable matches to make a compound word.
When they’ve found a match, have them place both Post-it® Notes on the Post-it® Easel Pad. Continue until all of the words are found and matched. Move your Post-it® Easel Pad to a wall as a Compound Word Wall for the year.
For an extra challenge, only put out the first word of the compound words and let the students finish the back half.
