Make a supply of butterfly cards, either the colored or you can print the black and white on colored paper. It can be used as a center or a whole group activity.
Center Activity: Students match the cards to create compound words
Whole Group: Lay the flower in the central location in the room. Pass out a card half to each child. Students will walk around the room looking for the matching half to their card. Once students find their match, the partners state their word and then "fly" together to the flower. Once all students are at the flower, they can take turns stating their compound words.
