Back to School Compound Words

Compound Words for Back to School theme

Back to School Compound Word ActivitiesYou won't believe how many compound words there are in the English language! It's only through brainstorming and making my lists, that I realized I may as well group them into themes since my word list was really too long.             These are my Back to School themed compound word puzzles. They were really fun to make. The cards are perfect for group work and stations. Each puzzle card has the compound word at the top with a picture and the two cut-apart words below with matching pictures. This set has 28 closed compound words.                                                                                                                                          The back to school compound words in this set are: classroom, notebook, clipboard, backpack, paintbrush, laptop, superhero, smartboard, lunchbox, homework, whiteboard, timeout, cupboard, bookcase, handwriting, chalkboard, bookworm, wheelchair, notepad, playground, playdough, newsletter, paperclip, lunchtime, noticeboard, earphone, birthday, and printout. They can also be used as compound word flashcards.                                                                                                                                            The size of these cards may be right for you but if you would prefer to have them smaller, you can always set them to print on a smaller scale such as 4 pages per printing page. Detailed printing instructions are included in this PDF file.

I took as many pictures as I could to show the variety of puzzle pieces (see below).

About Me

My photo
As a Caribbean primary school teacher, I share my unique classroom with the world through this blog. Readers step into my class through the pictures, articles and classroom samples of games and lessons used in my class. I have been teaching since 2005 at the std. 4 primary level in Trinidad and Tobago. I am particularly interested in sharing my own personal lesson plans, tests and activities. Teachers need to share ideas and support each other because in doing so, we help to educate our students and develop ourselves as teachers. Technology is ever evolving and we as teachers should get on board with it, collaborate and keep up to date with this new age that we live in. Our students belong to this technological era and we must embrace opportunities to learn from each other in this global community. I also love to express my creativity in the classroom. I am a bit of a craftster . So I'm always cutting, gluing or making something... a game, a chart, a learning center, etc. So, teachers and parents, feel free to stop by and see what's new at Nyla's Crafty Teaching!
