This product includes five cut and paste activity pages designed to meet the second grade Common Core Standard for compound words. Students will use their prior knowledge of the words that make up less common compound words to determine their meanings.
Great for literacy centers!
Common Core Standards addressed: *CC.2.L.4d: Use knowledge of the meaning of individual words to predict the meaning of unknown compound words (e.g. birdhouse, housefly, bookshelf, notebook, bookmark).
I have been teaching elementary school in an urban district in Massachusetts for six years. I began my career teaching in first grade and have now transitioned into second grade. I especially enjoy creating engaging book studies and center activities for my students.
I believe in providing my students with plenty of positive reinforcement and a variety of ways to access any and all academic content. My lessons incorporate authentic, hands-on, and cooperative learning experiences whenever possible, and I provide many opportunities to build reading and writing skills across all content areas.
I hold a bachelor's degree from Clark University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Education and Sociology. My master's degree is in Teaching and is also from Clark University.
