Write a word on a Post-it® Super Sticky Note that can be combined with another word to create a compound word. For example, write "pop" on one note and "corn" on another. Make a number of options.

02

While the students are out of the room, place the Post-it® Super Sticky Notes containing the individual words all around the room.



03

Next, place a Post-it® Easel Pad in the middle of the room.

04

When the students return, let them hunt for words around the room. Challenge them to find suitable matches to make a compound word.

05

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.

06

For an extra challenge, only put out the first word of the compound words and let the students finish the back half. Education icon
