Reflection: Online Resources Learning to Read Compound Words - Section 2: Guided Practice (We Do)


I would love to be able to create every resource for my classroom but since there aren't 100 hours in a day, I have to work smarter not harder. When we collaborate and find great resources on line, you can make life so much easier for yourself.  There are great Smartboard lessons on Smart Exchange and great Activboard lessons on Promethean Planet.  All you have to do is sign up for a free account and get started.  I found some great compound word lessons.  The Smartboard lesson is marked with the extension .notebook and the Activboard lesson is marked with the extension .flipchart.  The practice activities are slightly different because the software programs aren't exactly compatible, but I took some other people's lessons and made them my own.  Watch the video here, Compound Words - Making Resources Your Own Smartboard.mp4, to get a good idea of how you can combine several lessons that you find into one.
