Meatballs, Butterflies, Eyeballs, Goldfish, Bathtubs, and More!

Compound words is the name of the game this week in Room 10.  And, I guess that synonyms and antonyms are the middle and last names of the game too.

We did this activity for morning work today and the kids had fun with it.  I got the poem from this book by Scholastic which I love... it has poems for EVERYTHING!!!!  We do a poem each week for fluency and put them in our poetry notebooks.  I have amassed a large collection of poetry books, but this one is my favorite!

Anywho here's the page we did for the compound word poem... if you click on the pic you can get your copy!

We're also gearing up to play a spring/buggy themed compound word memory match game tomorrow.  It's from my Buggy for Language Arts center set pack.  I don't quite think my kids are compound worded out yet!  We also watched this fun You Tube video...

Ok- tomorrow's my 2nd Lakeshore Learning giveaway and review... hope you'll pop back then!
