the ends to the center and write the 2 separate words of the compound word on the ends. Then, open the caterpillar and write
the compound word together. Decorate with eyes and an antenna.

pasta, decorate a sheet of construction paper using your words. COMPLETELY cover the paper with pasta making sure that the

make sure they relate to the word on the big star!
