"Compound It all!" -me

Or was that "confound it all?"  After working on our Build Compound Words App (for ipad) these past several months, I may have confused nf with mp!    We (Chris Holm, Speech/Language Clinician, and Kim Wapola, Developer Extraordinaire) have been working together since January to put together an animated online product that would support this common core standard: 
Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of compound words (e.g., birdhouse, lighthouse, housefly; bookshelf, notebook, bookmark).
The app will soon be available!

In the meantime, there are printable products already available here:  We believe the real photographs used in these products (the same photos used in the app) are especially worthwhile for students with limited language or diverse learning needs.   
 1.  Build Compound Words for Kids is a compilation of 10 different activities to practice compound words for independent word-work stations or literacy centers. Click here for the full preview:

2.  Build Compound Words for Teachers includes 5 comprehensive activities designed to be used for therapy or 1:1 sessions, with recording sheets and IEP goals/objectives included.  Click here to see it:
3.  Build Compound Words All in One is just that: both products combined.  And here it is!

Definitely time to "Compound It All!" - in your classroom, homeschool, or therapy settings. 

Best always and ever,
