Add this two-part May activity to your End-of-School File and treat your students to a change of pace between test sessions. The first section, entitled Connections, presents sets of three words that can be connected with a common term related to the month of May. Looks simple, but it will have your students gritting their teeth! Next is a vocabulary challenge with definitions and descriptive clues that students can use to identify words with the letters M-A-Y or the phonetic sound. Finally, a graphic organizer leads your potential poets through the necessary steps for composing a May Poem.
Full answer keys are included.
