Compound Words & 2D Geometry

Happy Friday, y'all! Not sure about you but I've been working on report cards all week...but I'm happy to finally sing:

So needless to say, this week's recap is going to be short and sweet! Let's start with compound words:
Most of our literacy centres were focused on practicing identifying and writing compound words, and throughout the week we added to this little anchor chart:
They loved writing words in our pancake. 
I actually used this same idea last year as well...but as they say: if it ain't broke, don't fix it! 
FLASHBACK:
Last year's anchor chart was so much cuter!

We also repeated an another activity for our pocket chart centre that is currently my number 1 most-downloaded freebie on TpT:

In math, we continued with 2D geometry by learning about symmetry:
We used these anchor charts to practice making various shapes and figures symmetrical before trying it out on our own. I find symmetry is often quite a difficult concept for some little ones to demonstrate independently but I have to say, my firsties ROCKED it this year!
They were all about our symmetrical snowman:

...And if you're looking for some extra practice worksheets to go along with a basic geometry unit, check out this new product I just added to my little shop:
So far we've used most of the 2D worksheets as centre activities and the kids really enjoyed them...especially the "Shape Search." I've even used 2 as assessment pieces. 
I won't introduce 3D geometry until second term but I can't wait to try those out!

And that about wraps it up! Have a great weekend :)
