Here's an idea for you. If you go to the beach somewhere at low tide write some vocabulary words in the sand. I love being on vacation in Maine and doing something fun on the beach that benefits me in the classroom. I print these words out on cards and have kids alphabetize them, have kids give these words a category (ocean/beach/Maine words), write sentences using these words, find these words in a story book about the ocean, etc...... You get the idea. Use my words if you are not able to take a trip to a sunny beach. Enjoy!
Which words are compound words? Which words have digraphs in them? So much learning.
