This product is intended to be used as an interactive activity to get the students moving around the room, working with words. This helps students with spelling compound words and recognizing how to break them apart into syllables. I try to incorporate a write the room activity in order to give the students a “brain break” of sorts and get them moving. I have included 16 sets of compound word cards for use but I also included additional sections to fill in your own words. The cards are to be cut out, laminated, and then taped around your room. Students typically complete this activity independently on the handout provided.
These cards could also be used as a memory card game in which the students work in partners and flip cards over until they make a compound word match.
