What do we have here, word detective?
Can you help us solve this challenge?
What do the words below have in common??
teapot popcorn bedroom
They are all made up of two smaller words!
These words are called compound words and are made when smaller words join together to make a longer word.
tea + pot = teapot
pop + corn = popcorn
bed + room = bedroom
Can you be a superhero (compound word alert!) and identify the compound words from the pictures below?
Many compound words begin with the word some.
some + thing = something
some + one = someone
some + where = somewhere
Can you think of any other compound words beginning with some?
In this activity, you will need to be a superstar spotter and find two words that join together to make a longer word.
Let’s get started!
