students put together words to make compound words
- I made cards out of construction paper
- My students were learning new spelling words for the week and they were compound words. To introduce the words, I didn't tell them what the words were. I gave each pair of students (handmade cards) with words on them. I told them each word has a match. They had to put the two cards together to make one word like butter and fly and then make butterfly. At the end we went over what words they had put together and I then told the students what our spelling words and skill was for the week.
