Compound Words

First grade students are learning about compound words.  Today, as an introduction, we read aloud If You Were a Compound Word by Trish Speed Shaskan and viewed a BrainPop Jr. video. We learned a compound word is made up of two or more different words put together to make one word with a new meaning.  In learning about compound words, we will discover how they help us read.  We will practice looking for parts we know and thinking about each word part and its definition.  Students will make inferences using what they know to figure out the meaning of the new word.

First graders played compound word bingo during centers.
