Students often get the terms compound words and contractions mixed up. I created this center for the students to sort the word cards under the header compound word or contraction. As they sort in their small group or with their partner, or even by themselves, they record the words onto the recording sheet into the correct category. This is a great literacy center for small group/cooperative learning. Easy to prep--copy onto cardstock, laminate, cut and then make copies (front to back) of the recording sheet for your students and you're good to go! The set incudes 4 pages of cards (32) to sort and a front to back recording sheet. Great practice and great center activity for reinforcing the skills of compound words and contractions! Also check out my other practice activities for compound words and contractions, including a color sorting worksheet. Thanks!
