Compund words... and a Dr. Seuss givaway!

So today is a day off with the Mr. and I plan to enjoy every moment of it! So here is a quick post on our adventures into compound words this week (we're just getting started!) and read on for my Dr. Seuss giveaway.

One of our HM focuses this week was compound words, so all week we have been compiling any compound word we thought of or came across in reading

sorry for the glare :( .. hello flash in a white board!

Then at the end of the week we made compound word raincoats! Here are a couple of my kiddos coats...



I'll go to the moon in my spaceship.
And since Dr. Seuss' birthday is fast approaching along with Read Across America week I put together this Cat in the Hat Mini Unit to go along with the book. It includes all you see below and can be picked up in my TPT store for just $2.00!


Of course, someone should always get to win one, so... If you are the first to guess my favorite Dr. Seuss book I will send it your way for free, just don't forget to leave your e-mail! And if no one can guess I'll randomly choose a comment tomorrow night!

Happy Monday!
