Teaching compound words is an important aspect of language learning and can help students improve their vocabulary, reading, spelling, and writing skills. Learning compound words helps students expand their vocabulary and can add variety and interest to their writing. These puzzles are a fun way to practice recognizing compound words!

There are 24 easy-cut compound words puzzles included in both color and black and white. Please see the PREVIEW for a complete list of words.

You can use compound word puzzles as a literacy center, early finisher reward, or a rainy-day recess activity. They work well for an activity volunteers can do with students that need a little extra practice. The picture support is helpful for ESL students and struggling readers. They are also a fun way for parents to help students reinforce skills during summer break.

Students can enjoy puzzles for practicing other skills too. Check out puzzles for rhyming, blends, and digraphs.
