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.
