Compound Words

Learning about compound words is so much fun with this video and worksheet! A compound word is a word made by combining two other words. The new word has a new meaning. Learning about compound words increases children’s vocabulary and students learn from compound words that words can have parts. This leads to future learning about prefixes, base words and suffixes.

Here are examples of compound words:

Foot+ball      Football

Ear+ring       Earring

Sun+light      Sunlight

In the video, the teacher defines compound words and explains the worksheet practice task.  On the worksheet students read a sentence and choose the correct compound word to complete the sentence. A picture clue accompanies each sentence. The teacher reads each sentence and all answer choices. Children read each compound word in context and choose the correct answer.

Learn what a compound word is and use picture and context clues to complete sentences with instruction from the video and teacher.

Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!

Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.

This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
