Groundhog’s Day is the perfect time for some compound words fun! Have you ever played charades with compound words? This is a great activity to do when your class has the wiggles. Introduce it whole group and then put your students in smaller groups. You will hear giggles and see wiggles. You can also do this during inside recess. I have a list of compound words that you can cut up and put in a bucket. Let your volunteer that is acting out the charade pick one from the bucket.
I also made an extension assignment that is free.
