This week we are learning about compound words. To go along with our unit on weather and seasons (and it ties in nicely with St. Patrick's Day coming up), I made a rainbow compound word activity. Basically, I took a picture of a rainbow with a cloud and cut the cloud off. I then wrote half of the compound word on the rainbow and half on the cloud. The students have to match the rainbow to the cloud to make a compound word (sort of like a puzzle). I make a lot of my activities by hand, but I have tried to recreate this on the computer for you. I did include 2 blank rainbows that you could print multiple copies of and add your own words. If nothing else, I hope it gives you some inspiration.

If you need a smile, I want to share some of my students' writings with you. Okay, hold that thought! I was going to share them with you, but when I went to take pictures, my camera battery was dead, so you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see them (but trust me, they're cute!).
