Mini lesson plan:

Compound Word Art
Teaching: Thursday, March 22nd
● Arts & Crafts
○ Painting and Drawing
● Reading & Writing
○ Word Structure
■ Structure of Compound words
If your students love drawing or painting, this compound word art activity is a
perfect way to let your students get creative and increase their vocabulary and
literacy skills. Compound words are when two words are combined to make a
whole new word. This activity is a great visual for students if they are struggling to
understand what compound words are and how to create them. They will also
be able to see and understand that when two words are combined, that new
word can have a whole new meaning.

● Common Core
○ CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.L.1.1: Demonstrate command of the
conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing
or speaking
● State- Illinois
○ With guidance and support from adults, demonstrate
understanding of word relationships and nuances in word
● Students will demonstrate the meaning of compound words
● Students will be able to create compound words

● Introduction
○ The lesson will start off with talking about what compound words are
and what they could be used for. After discussion, we will look at a
powerpoint about compound words are and they activity we will
be doing that day.
○ What I will be saying at the start: “Hello boys and girls! Today we will
be learning about compound words and how to use them in other
● Process
1. Ask questions about compound words and what they might
be/what they could be used for. ( I would be asking what they
mean and if they know what they look like)
2. Go over powerpoint (google powerpoint)
3. Go over the activity/what students will be creating and show an
4. Pass out materials
5. Give them time to do the activity and walk around class (see if any
children need assistance)
6. Wrap-up: have children share one picture/word that they created.
7. Go over homework and what students will be expected to do
8. Refer back to powerpoint and ask children what they are and how
they can be used in other subjects/projects.
● Closure
○ Go over the introduction and ask the students what they could use
compound words for other projects/assignments
I know that my students will meet my objectives by listening to the powerpoint
and participating in the activity.

Students will take home their activity/project to show their parents. Students
would come back to class the next day with new word and two new pictures to
share with the teacher and with peers in the classroom

● For students
○ A white piece of paper
○ Scissors
■ 3-4 of each
○ Coloring utensils (crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc.)
○ A sheet of compound words for reference if needed
● For the teacher
○ Desks for the students to sit
○ Computer for powerpoint presentation (google powerpoint)
○ A sheet of compound words for reference if needed
○ A visual example of the activity for students to reference

For the lesson, I will need a chromebook or a computer to present the
powerpoint. I will also be using powerpoint from google.

Overall, I feel like my mini lesson went really well. The students seemed to enjoy

the lesson and understand the topic that I was teaching. I think it was a good

idea to keep my presentation/ Powerpoint shorter because first graders would

be interested and would not stay engaged. My Powerpoint was super simple

and to the point with lots of pictures and color. I also added an interactive slide

where students had to “add” two words to made one new word. This idea

would get them started with recognizing compound words and what they look

like. There were also pictures above each word to have a visual for the students.

Incorporating the art/coloring activity was a good choice because it kept them

engaged and interested in the topic. It was also a good stress reliever, and a fun

way for the students to learn about compound words. One thing that I could

improve on is my introduction when presenting the topic. I think I need a

smoother transition and asking the students better questions that they might

understand better. Also my pace could have been a little slower. Some new
teaching knowledge that I gained from this mini lesson is that I have to think

about what kinds activities would benefit my students in a positive way. And also

that doing a craft/art activity, could help the students feel more comfortable in

understanding the material.


Overall, I feel like both of my peers did really well. I enjoyed the lessons that they

taught and their style of presenting the material. They both used worksheets for

their lessons and I thought they were perfect for the type of lesson. It was

interesting to see their style of teaching because it was different than my own. I

feel like I could definitely take some of their styles and incorporate that into my

own future lessons. I really liked Lauren’s Powerpoint because it was very

interacting for that age group and was very professional and neat. That lesson

would be very beneficial for a child having difficulty with addition and

subtraction. I also enjoyed Faith’s lesson and the type of worksheet that she

used. Having the students roll the dice to get their numbers was a good idea

rather than just having them do a worksheet.
