Here are 24 compound word task cards for Valentine's Day that will make two literacy centers. Twelve cards are for students to choose the compound words and twelve cards are for students to make compound words. I included recording sheets for each set of cards with answer keys so students can self-check independently.
NEW: I added a write and draw page, a core standards page, and an ESL Insights page as a guide to use this product with ELL students.
Use words and phrases acquired through conversations, reading and being read to, and responding to texts,..
Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of compound words (e.g., birdhouse, lighthouse, housefly; bookshelf, notebook, bookmark).
Use spelling patterns and generalizations (e.g., word families, position-based spellings, syllable patterns, ending rules, meaningful word parts) in writing words.
I also have other compound word resources available:
