This activity consists of colorful socks. Students will match one pair of socks to make a compound word. Pairs of socks will not be the same color when making the compound words. Use in whole group to introduce or review compound words or place in literacy stations for students to work independently. Answer key is included. There are 40 matches. This is brought to you from "PRECIOUS ITEMS." In my class I used as a whole group activity to review compound words. I placed all socks in one large chart. Students called out a compound word with the pair of socks and then placed the match into another large chart. My students loved this activity! I now placed in their literacy stations so they can do this activity independently. They can also place the pair of socks on the clothesline as they make each compound word. They can also put the words in ABC order on the clothesline.
