Never Eat Slimy Worms- Compass Rose!

We had so much fun with the Cardinal directions. We started off with the mnemonic "Never Eat Slimy Worms" They all screamed and shouted in disgust. Then I linked it to the four directions on a compass rose Never-North, Eat- East, Slimy-South, Worms-West. To drive this concept home we made these adorable WORMS!!!!  

They wrote the mnemonic sentence at the bottom of the page, made a compass rose up in the corner, and wrote the vocab terms under each segment of the worm's body. 

We followed it up with a special GAME addition of Simon Says called Directions Simon Says. "Simon says turn East" and they would face east in accordance to where it was in our classroom.
