PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Harvesting Compound Words is a game of matching and memory. This is like the game of concentration, but with a twist!

I call it "Concentration with a Twist!!"

Do your students like concentration games?

Some of my students needed the scaffolding of a game board to help them spatially with setting up the cards in an array. Also, a few of them did not need to get bogged down with remembering where the cards were. I am mainly interested in whether they can match the correct cards. In this case, two words that make a compound word.

So, in order to have the kids practice as often as possible, I came up with "Concentration with a Twist".

The students play this with a partner. I also send my number versions home for homework. However...many kids these days don't have playing cards at home, so I have made some for them to take home and for classroom use as well. (They will be uploaded very soon.)

This resource includes:
- 27 full color playing cards
- 2 ink-saving sets to meet your printing needs
- Kid-friendly directions
- Game board to facilitate setting up the cards in an array
- 3 recording sheets for differentiation
{These are very similar except the directions are tweaked to provide various amounts of practice and challenge.}
- An answer key of possible answers {kid-friendly}
- Instructions of how to use Dr. Jean's "Compound Boogie" as a fun, scaffolding activity.
- A work mat that coordinates with "Compound Boogie"

Please see the preview to see these resources at a glance.

I hope your students enjoy practicing making compound words in this fun way!

My students love this game. More games to come...stay tuned!
