This is a fun and creative way for your students to reinforce what they have learned about compound words.
Included in the pack:
A blackline master of Funny Fish page.
A colored cover page for a class book.
A blackline master of Funny Fish mini page.
A blackline master of a cover page for the Funny Fish mini book.
Three sample Funny Fish pages in color.
A set 48 of compound word cards to use in a center.
A recording page to list compound words made.
An answer sheet for compound words.
This activity is a good follow-up after compound words have been introduced. I would show the children the sample pages so they will get the idea. Then let them brainstorm ideas for the fish they want to make. When my class does it, I have them do a rough draft, just drawing the different fish, before giving them their paper. It really helps them to be more creative.
There are several ways to do this activity. You can use the large fish on page 4 to make a class book or hang in the hallway.
I have also included page 6 if you would like to let the students make their own mini book.
To reinforce what they have learned, I have made a matching game. I would print them on card stock and laminate for durability. The fish facing to the left are the first word of the compound word and the fish facing right are the last word. There is a recording page for the students to write down the compound words that they made.
