COMPOUND WORDS: Cowpoke Compound Words Literacy Center
Hitch your wagon to this fun literacy center to give your cowpokes practice with compound words. All of the words in COWPOKE COMPOUND WORDS
pertain to the Wild West theme, giving your students additional experience with content vocabulary.
The task at this center is to match covered wagon cards to make compound words. Twenty combinations are possible using the 40 cards provided. Use as many as are appropriate for the age and stage of your learners. In consideration of your printing costs, the cards are provided in blackline as well as in color.
Make this center self-checking by printing the backs of the cards with the provided pictures. Once your students have finished making the compound word pairs, instruct them to flip each pair over. If the 2 halves make a picture, the match is correct.
Two recording sheets are provided should you wish to have your students document their work. One is appropriate for young learners; the other more appropriate for older children. Also included are a label for your center folder and a direction placard for the center. This product is CCSS aligned.
