Looking for a way to help your child practice reading compound words? Try these!

Today I’m sharing set 17 of my free phonics readers: compound words!
What I love about this set is its many opportunities for review. Since compound words are made of two separate words, your child has the opportunity to review two previously learned patterns on every page.
Let’s check out a sample book!
The colored text draws attention to the phonics pattern in each short word. After reading them, your child will combine the words to make the new compound word.
Each book reviews sight words from our sight word reader collection. On this page, your child will review he, is, a, and big.
As you can see, the books are not actual stories. They are collections of sentences that share a similar phonics pattern.
On this page your child reviews the patterns ash and igh (as in the word flashlight) as well as ar (dark).
On the last page, your child reviews all the new words from the book.
I hope you enjoy this set!
How to print and assemble:
- Separate the stack into each individual book. Each book consists of two pages front to back.
- Cut across the horizontal center of the pages.
- Insert the pages into each other, using the page numbers as a guide.
- Staple with a long arm stapler.
