Great center activity to help students understand compound words.

There are 50 compound word cards for you to choose from when setting up your literacy stations. There are definitely enough cards for a small group of about 5-6 students. You'll also find a range of compound word cards from 'easy' words like inside and outside to 'harder' words like shipwreck to hairdresser. A great selection to meet the learning needs of your students and to expand their vocabulary.

Also included is a word list of all 50 compound words in this set.

To create a writing accountability piece to this activity, give each student a piece of notebook paper and have them choose 4-5 words that they made to use in a sentence.

NOTE: There will be some cutting involved in getting this literacy station set up but it'll be a favorite literacy center for many years to come. Trust me!
