This language lesson helps the child learn about compound words. It is designed for 6 to 12-year-old children.

What are compound words?
Compound words are formed when two or more words join together to make a new word, which has a new meaning. For example, butter + fly = butterfly.

This video lesson uses picture cards to help the child form new compound words. It also helps the child to practice breaking the compound word into its root words.

Invite the child to make new compound words with the common objects around them as shown in the video and help them enhance their vocabulary.
