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.
Next, place a Post-it® Easel Pad in the middle of the room.
When the students return, let them hunt for words around the room. Challenge them to find suitable matches to make a compound word.
For an extra challenge, only put out the first word of the compound words and let the students finish the back half.
