DS2 is coming to the end of age 7-8 VR book and although on the whole it is quite easy I felt that some of the compound excercises were hard. Hubby who is a genius when it comes to English normally gets the answers within a split second - I take far longer
- but even he has to stop and think.
Here were the examples on paper 20:
BIRD FOOD FRONT BED
BOAT TIME BELT LIKE
BERRY OUT BIRD MAIL
DRESS SHIP AXE FIELD
I know for a fact my son wouldn't have heard of Blackmail or Blackout and Battledress and Battleaxe. Does anyone think these are hard for a 7-8 year old?
