I've been thinking about starting my own newsletter...or having a special section for the library in the school newsletter. Free Newsletter Template! Comes with color and BW!!......Follow for Free "too-neat-not-to-keep" teaching tools & other fun stuff :)
This activity has twelve compound words and 36 cards for students to match. There is a recording sheet with an I can statement: "I can write compound words." There is a write and illustrate page with an I can statement: "I can write a sentence with a compound word." I also included a tri-fold interactive compound word journal foldable that could be used in a center with the cards and recording sheet.
Paul and Norbury (2012) explain that phonological awareness is an important skill to help decode words for reading and spelling. Phonological awareness includes counting syllables, rhyming, finding alliterations, and segmenting words. Phonological awareness activities, however, should only be used until students are able to segment words and put letters to sounds. After this, direct reading and spelling intervention should be used.
