The first and second graders in Ms. Cashman’s Title I class at St. Bridget School have been studying compound words. So they learned a compound word is formed from two words to make a new word with a new meaning.
First Graders’ Compound Words
The first graders drew a picture of each individual word. Then they drew a picture of the new compound word.
Second Graders’ Compound Word Sentences
Second graders drew pictures of compounds as well, but they also wrote sentences to show how the compounds changed meanings.
See this The Electric Company Game for parents to use at home to teach and review compound word skills.
