I created these open compound nouns games so my ELLs could practice their vocabulary. They quickly grasped the concept of closed compounds, and didn't struggle much with hyphenated compounds, but open compounds were very difficult for them. They wanted to identify them as two separate nouns or as an adjective with a noun. These games really helped them learn some new vocabulary and grasp the concept of open compounds.

Since there is sometimes controversy over whether a compound noun should be closed, hyphenated, or open I let Merriam Webster’s Dictionary be the final determiner. If that dictionary listed the noun as a single entry and did not close or hyphenate it, I included it. This is not an exhaustive list, but it is 24 of the more common open compounds.

Included in this download are the directions for playing and the printable cards needed for the following activities/games:

1. Open Compound Sort

2. Open Compound Memory

3. Open Compound Dominoes

4. Open Compound Taboo

Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of compound words (e.g., birdhouse, lighthouse, housefly; bookshelf, notebook, bookmark).
