This week we have looked at ‘Compound Words’. Compound words are words which are created from two words that, when joined together, create a new word. My favourite compound words include butterfly, daylight, breakfast and handshake. Compound words are typically introduced in Grade One. Learning about compound words is fun and it provides children a new way of looking at words. Studying compound words helps children understand the language, builds an interest in words and will help prepare students to learn prefixes, suffixes, and word roots. Help us create a compound word wall!
