Happy Valentine's Day!
Break it Down... Valentine Style. Have fun breaking down compound words!
English is a weird, complex language. Help your young students get a better handle
NOTE: This is not a product that uses a theme to make it cute. The words in this product actually relate to Valentine's Day—so it’s REAL thematic teaching, which should help your kiddos make some strong connections while learning.
*****3 pages of graphic organizers, plus a *HowTo* page and *Answer Key* *****
2 PAGES OF GRAPHIC ORGANIZERS guide students to figure out the little words within the compound word.
1 BLANK, CUSTOMIZABLE PAGE: allows you to differentiate for students and allows the teacher (or students!) to customize the activity.
Once students got the hang of breaking down compound words you could use the blank page for homework, independent practice, or a literacy center activity. This activity could be used at one time or many times throughout the school year.
**Meets Common Core Standards for Second Grade**
Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of compound words (e.g., birdhouse, lighthouse, housefly; bookshelf, notebook, bookmark).
