Compound word game
£ 9.99 + P&P (Free UK P&P!)
Compound words can be made by joining two or more existing words together. The combination of these words creates a new word.
The words when joined up to form a compound word do not always keep their original meaning, for example invoice or breakfast.
Most children initially struggle with compound words as they read the words as two separate words. We have devised a word matching game to assist children in blending the words together. This helps children understand language structure.
The cards are colour coded to assist children with recognition as to which word begins the word and which word ends the word, i.e. red cards signify the beginning of the word and yellow cards signify the ending of the word.
The word on the cards is in bold letters so that it is clearly displayed to the child. The cards are numbered 1-3 in the top right hand corner of the card, which denotes the level of difficulty of the word, 3 being the most difficult.
