Compound Word Sorting Cards

These colourful word sorting cards with nonfiction real life photos are fun hands-on way to introduce young children to compound words.

Compound words are when two or more words combine to form a new word that acts as a single word with its own distinct meaning that is different from the meanings of the words they’re made up of. Learning about compound words can be a fun way to build vocabulary.

A perfect activity for small group work, literacy centres or morning tubs. With real life photos included as prompts, children will love trying to make new compound words from these cards.

Here's what's included -

  • 20+ pages of 2 sets of picture/words cards per page
  • 5 more pages of word only cards - 16 compound words per page making 80 compound words for more competent readers to sort.
