Something's Fishy!

Well it's been a week since I've posted but I have a really good reason. We've bought a house! We close tomorrow and we've been busy running all over town looking at furniture, carpeting, plants, etc.....and I even test drove a new car! What?! Last week my car broke down (AGAIN) and it made me late for school and totally ruined my cute outfit and amazing hair day. It's time to let the Maxima go and move on to something new. As soon as we figure out what that new car is y'all better believe I'll be posting about it! I've only listed that I wanted a new car on like every Currently I've ever posted! 

Moving on....

This week my students are learning about compound words. I love that even your struggling students can understand what compound words are and they all have a great time making a list of compound words that they know. I created a compound word pack for this week and I think you'll like it too! It has two word games, compound word stories, and and I have who has game! It's available at my TPT store.


I kind of like the goldfish on the cover. He looks like my pet goldfish I had as child. His name was Poor Thing. (I felt really bad for him being in a little fish bowl)

I would love to give away a copy to the first five people who leave their email address and leave me a comment telling me the name of your first pet!
