Please visit my blog for details and lots of pictures about how I use this resource in my classroom at www.igniteapassionforlearning.blogspot.com A very fun, meaningful way to learn about compound words!
We make chef hats and I give my students pancake flippers. Students read the compound words on pancakes (small groups) and flip their pancake when they read it correctly. I also dictate compound words (part of Orton Gillingham instruction) for them to write on the blank pancakes. We read stories like If You Give a Pig a Pancake, Curious George Makes Pancakes, Eric Carle’s Pancakes, Pancakes, & If You Give a Cat a Cupcake. Students write their own recipe with illustrations for compound words. I even include informative how to writing in the mini unit. At the end, I treat my students to mini-pancakes. It is a very ENGAGING series of lessons!
This resource includes:
23 pancakes with compound words
6 blank pancakes to add your own compound words
1 large blank pancake (to laminate and have students write compound words with dry-erase markers)
