1st Grade ProjectsMrs. DunningWe’ve been working with compound words, and "The Sleepy Owl" is full of them! So, we brainstormed a list of compound words, then we listened for more as we read the book. Since the boy made a kite that looked like an owl, and it’s finally SPRING TIME here, we painted our own owl kites. We attached bows to the tails of the kites which had our “favorite” compound words written on them. To tie the project into writing, we used our compound words in compound / extended sentences and Voila! We hope you enjoy our project, and hopefully the kites will encourage Spring to stay around for awhile!
