Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Learning to Read Compound Words - Section 4: Closure


At the end of the lesson I felt as though most of my students were able to decode the compound words well.  I really wanted my students to be able to achieve that standard where they could predict the meaning of the compound word based on the meaning of the individual words. I knew I would have to go back and focus in on that part of the lesson. 

I also wanted to give my students more independent practice with compound words so they could gain some experience with focusing in on that part of the standard on their own.  There are many great teachers in America, and when I can't make every resource for my classroom, I try to find resources that will help my students reach those standards.  Knowing that we're all teachers and we don't have limitless pocketbooks, I found these resources for free on Teachers Pay Teachers.  You can download these resources and use them as extension activities after you've taught the compound word lesson.  You can use them for either seatwork or literacy center activities.
