Monday

  • Watch the Unit 5 Week 1 Key Vocabulary Presentation

Word Work-

The spelling focus this week is on compound words.

A compound word is made up of two words put together to make a single word. A reader can often use the meanings of the two smaller words to figure out the meaning of the compound word.


For example the word stoplight contains the words stop and light. Stop means “to no longer move” and light refers to something bright. So if we put the two meanings together, we have the meaning of stoplight, which is “something bright that means to no longer move.”
