Compound Word flip book: With this activity, you can cut a piece of construction paper the long way. This cut will give you two long rectangular pieces of paper to work with. Take hold of the two sides of one rectangle. Fold the sides in towards each other. When you complete the fold, it should remind you of opening up a box. You will have your child make a compound word flip book with this paper. You can you the websites listed below to find examples of compound words.
Using words from the above websites have your child pick a word and create a “flip book” for the word. Using the folded paper from above, have your child break the compound word apart into the two separate words. For example, if your child chose the word “butterfly,” they would first break the word apart into two separate words (butter and fly). Next, they will find pictures of the two separate words. Using our sample word; butterfly, your child will need to find a picture of butter and a picture of a fly. On the left outside flap they will need to glue the picture of the butter and write the word butter underneath. On the right flap your child will need to glue the picture of a fly and write the corresponding word under the picture. On the inside have your child show a picture of the new compound word that has been created (butterfly). Follow the same procedure of attaching the picture and writing the word.
