Help students learn about compound words with these engaging task cards! As a supplement to the Journeys ELA curriculum for 2nd grade, these cards cover the vocabulary skill in Unit 2, Lesson 8. However, they can also be used independently of that curriculum.
The cards can be used for a variety of fun activities including scoot, classroom/hallway hunts or center activities. Just print the cards on card stock, laminate and cut, and you are ready to go! The direction sheet provides a mini-lesson on compound words and can be printed for students to refer to during the activity.
This download includes:
• instructions for activities
• direction sheet for mini-lesson
• 24 task cards
• answer key
• answer sheet
I have also created task cards for the following vocabulary skills covered in Journeys Unit 2 for second grade: prefixes un- and re-, homophones, synonyms, and suffixes er and est. You can also purchase my Journeys 2nd Grade Unit 2 Vocabulary Task Cards Bundle with task cards for all five stories in the unit.
Please let me know what you think of the cards! I hope your students enjoy using them!
