Description: Engage your second-grade students in a fun and interactive learning experience with our "Compound Word Picture Puzzles." These Boom Cards are designed to enhance their understanding of closed compound words. Closed compound words are created by merging two root words without a space, resulting in a word with a unique meaning. Each boom card has a puzzle consisting of three pieces. The first two pieces of the puzzle are clickable and the third is a static image of a compound word. There are spaces provided below each puzzle piece, for students to type the root words as well as the compound word they have formed. Students must click on the clickable images until they identify each root word that makes up the compound word. They can then type the root words as well as the closed compound word they have formed. Engage students in breaking down and recognizing root words within compound words. Instructional Targets: Practice forming closed compound words. Reinforce language skills through interactive puzzles. This resource aligns with the Common Core State Standard: CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.2.4.D - Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of compound words (e.g., birdhouse, lighthouse, housefly; bookshelf, notebook, bookmark). Instructions for Use: Click on the interactive images to identify the root words that form the closed compound word on the third puzzle piece. Type the root words as well as the closed compound word that has been formed.
