We'll start working with compound words next week and I wanted to share this cute book I was introduced to this summer for compound words! The pictures and the words in the story are a fabulous way to help the kids see how the two words can create a new and different word when
they're put together...
I thought I'd celebrate having 300 followers
(I'm honored you like the things I'm sharing enough to come back and check on me!)
So I've created a Power Point to go with the book "Once There Was a Bullfrog". It has the pictures of the book enlarged so you can use them with your projector as you read the book to the class (you'll still need a copy of the book due to copyright issues).
I'll give the download code to a lucky winner tomorrow (March 17th) after noon...
Luck of the Irish to you!
