Panther fun with Compound words helps students begin to recognize and understand simple compound words, such as honeycomb and earring, early in life as these are object they see on a daily basis, then progress to more complex compound words. Students learn that compound words are made up of two whole words that function as a single unit of meaning, and that the two words give clues to the meaning of the compound word. AS this is an introductory activity, we look at 12 closed form and open form compound words. This could be considered the baseline to building an interest in words and will help prepare students to learn prefixes, suffixes, and word roots which are main parts of the English language. This activity consists of 36 cards, where 2 cards are the combination and the last card is the resulting compound word. Eg: sun + flower = sunflower.
