Compound It All!
By Kym Kristy, 5th grade educator
Compound It All! is a must have in every classroom in America, not to mention that it is also a fabulous family game. My 5th grade students absolutely LOVED it. They found it challenging, fun, and easy to follow the directions. I also enjoyed listening to them collaborating as they played in teams, as well as their discussions when they played one on one. They utilized their on-line dictionary to confirm compounds which in turn generated discussions about new words they were learning. Compound It All! is thought-provoking and motivating, and a great hands-on method to build vocabulary. As an added bonus, the kids were thrilled with the laminated cards, big and bold words, the easy to follow directions, and the variations on the game.
I can't wait to get the full set!!!
