I know many of you are on your Spring Break this week....so I hope you are enjoying your time off (although I'm sure many of you are still working on school stuff!) We never stop!
We have been diving head first into spring activities and everything that comes with spring! This week is no different. We have been flying high with fractions, starting out with plants, and having an early Easter with a little hunt....a compound word hunt that is!
We worked a lot with compound words after the winter break, but we touched back on it for a few days this week.
I stopped at the local dollar store (my favorite!) and picked up some plastic eggs and a $1 basket. I wrote a few compound words on the eggs (first word on top and second word on bottom).
Pretty simple huh?!
Each student chose one egg....
(I want the blue one...... I want a yellow one....... Oh just pick one!!!)
I say that with my sweetest little voice ;)
They each get their own "EGG-Cited about Compounds activity sheet, which allows them to break apart their egg and dissect their compound word. (seeing as how a compound word is made up of two real and complete words!)

Today we went on a little compound word hunt.....and they LOVED it! I just printed off some simple compound word pictures and placed them all around the room.
They took off with their clipboards and wrote away! We set the timer to see how many words they could actually identify and write onto their recording sheet....
So simple..... yet so FUN! Some kiddos wanted to put ball....or flower....which allowed for a quick reminder of what a compound word is! So they quickly changed their answer!!!

Tomorrow we start contractions and continue with plants!! It's a busy and fun-filled week!!!
