I always introduce him at the very beginning of the lesson and we use him all week long for our exit tickets. After his wonderful introduction and the intro
lesson all about compound words, he has a problem that he shares with us.... He needs our help!!!!!
After we find our compound words, we list them on our work mats for us to check and go over.
We also do a dump truck matching game throughout the week to help reinforce the lesson and for extra practice for anyone who may need it.
All of these activities is in our Compound Words Unit along with an anchor chart and a few more compound construction themed worksheets to go along with our lesson throughout the week.

We finally made it to the 50th Day of school. We have been counting down the days!!! The kiddos were so excited!!
Now it's time to count to 100 !!!
To start 50's day off, we went to our city museum and saw items that were used in our past. This was a great way to learn about how things were then and how they are different now when we got back to our classroom.We learned about the clothes they wore and the schooling they received way back when......
We had a blast doing our 50's day activities....We loved the numbers hidden picture during math time.
From Coke Floats,Poodle Skirts and our boy and girl craftivity....Our day was packed with great games and
a Rockin' Sock Hop.......
We loved counting by 5's to 50 during our Snack Time.
We also had a special visitor enter the building for songs and pictures.......
We had a wonderful day!!!!!!!
All the activities we did came from our 50th Day of School Freebie.

Vocabulary journals are one of the best and easiest resources for your students to help "build" their vocabulary. I used these vocabulary journals last year and saw my student's vocabulary increase significantly in their writing and speaking. I copy the cover onto colored copy paper and write the students name on the front and staple the pages together. I use this for Math and Ela. Each time we write a word we go over the previous words. It helps keep it fresh in their minds. My teaching cohart makes 2 journals- one for math and one for ela- both ways work great.

There are many different versions for different uses and grade levels- I love using the illustration pages for reading vocabulary words I do not put these in the journals- I use the alphabet pages- for our daily journals.
