That is what it is all about, fun. My son gets bored when I am just lecturing, I do all the talking and he does all the listening. We do this a lot in Math, so I try to make English a little more fun. I create fun games, worksheets or crafts to make the learning process easier.
I created this fun worksheet called Alien Compound Words. Help the Aliens find their home planets. You can glue the Aliens on the planets for a one time activity or you can just place the Aliens on their home planet to do it more than once. The choice is yours. You can print the worksheet here.
