Compound words are words that are formed by using two or more smaller words. When these words are combined a completely new word is formed. Consider the words "back" and "track". The word "back" indicates that we are focused on the rear position of something. The word "track" indicates that we focused on the progress of something. When we put these words together to form the word "backtrack", we are retraces the steps that some took. These worksheets will have students identify and write compound words. They will also have students create their own unique combined words.
