This product contains 3 sets of compound word cards. Each set has 10 compound words.
These compound word cards can be used in a variety of ways:
As a large group introductory activity. I place ½ of the compound word cards around the classroom (the first word cards or the second word cards or a mixed set). Students walk around with a clipboard and the corresponding answer sheet. They record the matching word and the new word they can make. I then project the answer sheet on to my whiteboard and have students record their answers on the whiteboard and we check their work.
As a center activity during guided reading rotations. Students are given both the first and second words. They match the words to make compound words. Students record their answers.
The cards could be used as a memory game for partners. Place 1, 2 or all 3 sets upside down and partners take turns trying to match cards to make compound words.
Also included are 4 follow-up sheets. One is a sentence writing activity. The second is a fun illustrating activity. Students pick one compound word and illustrate it using a literal translation.The third is a worksheet were students select words from 2 boxes to create words. The fourth is a brainstorming worksheet.
