Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs - Judi Barrett,Ron Barrett

I think this would be an appropriate read for any 2nd to 4th grade class. For those same grades, you could teach a lesson on compound words. Before reading, you would discuss what a compound word is, share some examples and explain how you know the definition of each words by using context clues. While reading the story, have students write down compound words that they hear throughout the story on a post it note. After reading, let them share their words and put their post it on the front board. You can also have the students make a flip book and behind each compound word they write, they will use their context clues to figure out the words meaning.

Cookie's Week
Cookie's Week - Cindy Ward,Tomie dePaola

Written by Cindy Ward

Illustrated by Tomie dePaola


Cookie is a mischievous black and white kitten who gets into trouble every day of the week, knocking over trash cans and getting shut in drawers. What will Cookie do on Sunday?


This book would be great for discussing days of the week with kindergarten or as a simple introduction to exclamation marks in first grade. Cookie is a lovable kitten and the colorful illustrations will keep readers engaged.

There Once Was a Bull... (Frog)
Once There Was a Bull... (Frog) - Rick Walton,Greg Hally

Written by Rick Walton

Illustrated by Greg Hally


Bullfrog has lost his hop! While searching for it, he experiences a variety of situations involving compound words.


I love this book! Great for a lesson on compound words with second grade. It will keep children engaged as they try to guess the second half of the compound word hidden on the next page.
