HYPHENS   - word bank of hyphenated words KS2 (grammar and writing)(Alphabet list)

During moderation, using HYPHENS was one area of writing most of my children always found hard to ‘tick off’. So to help them I compiled this hyphenated word bank. I left a space in each letter so they could add words of their own to it. But having them in front of them has definitely helped them to get hyphenated words in to their writing more.

Some of them had to be explained to them for meaning, but now they love trying to fit some of the more unusual ones in to their writing. They also add words from their reading books to the list. I found this very useful as there isn’t much on hyphens out there to help us teachers! Enjoy!
