We have spent a lot of weeks working on compound words.
I choose a lot of words that make up multiple compound words
like the picture above.
We played a game to practice her recall of compound words.
Each person must write a new word down making a compound word.
Then we count the letters in the word. For example:
rainbow = 3 points ( b-o-w )
raincoat = 4 points ( c-o-a-t )
When neither person can recall anymore words, we total up the points
and see who is the winner.
We worked on improving vocabulary and writing next. I talked about weak sentences and how to make them better with vivid vocabulary.
Here is my modelling. Then she did two of her own sentences.
I went to Kohls with my Mom last night and saw this in the store. LOVED IT!
